The crews of the army aviation of the WMD destroyed the infrastructure of the mock enemy at the training ground in the Leningrad region
The crews of the helicopters of the Leningrad air force and air defence formation of the Western Military District (WMD) inflicted rocket and cannon strikes on the infrastructure of the mock enemy.
During the training flights, the crews of a separate helicopter regiment flew from the airfield based in St. Petersburg to the area of the Kingisepp training ground (Leningrad region), where they performed a combat training mission to destroy enemy infrastructure and manpower. The flight to the specified area of operations was carried out as part of the links at an extremely low altitude - up to 30 m .
As weapons of destruction, unguided S-8KOM aviation missiles, an automatic 30-mm GSh-30 cannon and P-50 training bombs were used. To create false targets for the air defence of a mock enemy, ASO-2B heat traps were used, produced with the help of on-board aircraft defence systems.
Crews of ten multi-purpose Mi-8MTV-5-1 helicopters, Mi-28N Night Hunter attack and combat helicopters, as well as Mi-35M were involved in the exercise.
