The crews of Su-34 WMD bombers destroyed the control points of the mock enemy at the Luzhsky training ground during the JSE Zapad-2021
As part of the joint strategic exercise Zapad-2021, the crews of bombers of the Leningrad air force and air defence army of the Western Military District destroyed buried command posts, infrastructure facilities and columns of armored and automotive equipment of the mock enemy at the Luzhsky training ground in the Leningrad region.
Previously, the crews of Su-24MR reconnaissance aircraft made sorties to the test site, which detected and transmitted the coordinates of ground targets for strike aircraft via closed communication channels.
During the drawing of the tactical episode, the flight crew of the bomber aviation of the WMD worked out the use of aviation bombs weighing 250 kg. Combat use was carried out using the latest computing subsystem SPV-24, which allows you to perform bombing with maximum accuracy.
