The first stage of the Keys to the Sky 2021 competition was held in the military units of the 1st Air Defence and Missile Defence Army
The combat crews of the anti-aircraft missile force of the military units of the air and anti-missile defence (special purpose) association of the Aerospace Forces took part in the qualifying stage of the Keys to the Sky 2021 competition.
The competition program included driving combat vehicles, performing maneuvers, fulfilling the standards for loading the launcher, and repelling the strike of a simulated enemy using electronic launches.
Combat crews in the course of simulating anti-aircraft combat had to detect air targets, distribute them and issue target designations for their conditional destruction. For mistakes made in the conduct of combat work, penalty points are awarded.
In addition, within the framework of the competition, the theoretical training of personnel of combat crews of anti-aircraft missile systems was assessed.
The winners of this stage will compete for a chance to represent the association at the all-army stage of the competition.
