In the territory of the army base aviation "Chernihivka" flight tactical exercises took place. The pilots of the Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopters learned to launch a missile strike on a conditional enemy naval assault. According to the legend of the exercises, illegal armed groups on landing boats and amphibious armored vehicles tried to capture the coast of one of the regions of the Primorsky Territory.
At the first stage, the crews of combat vehicles were alerted and sent to the combat area. During the flights, the helicopter pilots performed various maneuvers of different complexity with the aim of avoiding the attack of the air defense weapons of the conditional enemy with the suppression of his radar equipment. Upon targeting from the command post, the helicopters in pairs stepped into the designated area and attacked the enemy’s weapons and manpower with guided and unguided rockets.
