Young pilots of the Southern Military District performed flights on front-line Su-24M bombers in the sky of the Volgograd region
Officers of the aviation regiment of the Southern Military District (SMD) flew Su-24M front-line bombers in the Volgograd region.
Pilots under the guidance of experienced instructors performed flights at speeds from 500 to 1000 km / h at altitudes up to 1000 m.
In July, the Su-24M crews will take part in tactical flight exercises, during which they will work out tasks to destroy group ground targets that simulate light armored vehicles and enemy command posts, perform maneuvers to evade fighter aircraft and land at an unfamiliar airfield.
The main purpose of the flight shift was to train young pilots to operate in various weather conditions day and night, as well as to fly in pairs at low and ultra-low altitude.
