The pilots of the air base “Shagol”, stationed in the Chelyabinsk region, hit the disguised airfield of the imaginary enemy at the training area “Safakulevo” in the Kurgan region, the official representative of the Central Military District Colonel Jaroslav Roshchupkin reported.
Su-24M crews worked bombing by two or more goals in one go. The target layout simulated the runway, aircrafts and airfield infrastructure facilities.
The flights were conducted at night in adverse weather conditions with maneuvers to overcome air defense and aerobatics in the clouds with high angles of roll and pitch.
The pilots successfully coped with this task: reached the area of combat employment, found the goal, and struck them with 250-kilogram high-explosive bombs.
