Anti-aircraft crews of the Southern military district repelled the attack of the mock enemy and destroyed the air targets in Northern Ossetia
The 58th combined arms army anti-aircraft unit crews of the Southern military district in Northern Ossetia repelled the attack of the mock enemy’s sabotage party and aircraft.
According to the plot of the exercise, a column of the “Buk-M3” anti-aircraft missile systems was attacked by the mock enemy on the march. The servicemen discovered the ambush in time, engaged the enemy and provided cover for the main column to escape to a safe area.
The anti-aircraft crews occupied positions in the designated area, met the deployment standards and practiced aerial target acquisition, tracking and classifying. Having finished the exercise, the crews conducted electronic missile launches to destroy the enemy’s attack aircraft group. The enemy’s aircraft were imitated by the Su-25SM attack aircraft.
More than 800 servicemen and about 100 combat and special vehicles were employed in the exercise.
