The crews of the S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems of the missile brigade of the Central Military District stationed near Krasnoyarsk, as part of an air defence exercise, destroyed a mock aircraft enemy.
During combat duty in the new positional area, the S-300 air defence systems received a signal about the violation of the airspace in the zones of responsibility by a mock enemy, the role of which was played by two MiG-31BM supersonic fighter-interceptors. The anti-aircraft gunners practiced the capture of a low-flying target at a distance of about 250 km and, after receiving the command, hit the targets with electronic launches.
