        Not. Four! laughing Do not talk nonsense - which parts were planned to participate in the exercises, they participate.
        It was thought: somehow we got used to large-scale training of our pilots and the whole army as a whole - we take it for granted. And remember, ten years ago we could not even imagine such an intensive military training ..
