The crews of the Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile and cannon complexes (ZRPK) of the air defense formations of the Central Military District (CVO) during the exercise in the Novosibirsk region destroyed the attack drones of the imaginary enemy.

Then the information was transferred to the command post. To accomplish this task, the crews of the Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile and gun systems took up firing positions using an optoelectronic system, took low-flying targets for escort and destroyed them with shots from 30-mm anti-aircraft guns at a distance of up to six kilometers.
