The anti-aircraft gunners of five anti-aircraft missile formations of the Southern, Central and Eastern military districts, undergoing training (retraining) in the training center for the combat use of military air defense, successfully organized echeloned air defense and repelled a massive attack of ballistic and cruise missiles, as well as a raid of unmanned aerial vehicles of a simulated enemy in Astrakhan area.

During the exercises at the Kapustin Yar training ground, a military air defense group was created, the basis of which was the S-300V4, Buk-M3, Tor-M2 anti-aircraft missile systems and complexes, as well as crews of Typhoon-Air Defense combat vehicles with MANPADS. Willow “. To create a complex target environment, in addition to the traditional target complexes of the military air defense, the newest universal complex “Adjutant” was used, which has a wide range of simulators of air attack weapons from helicopters to cruise missiles.

At the first stage of the exercise, the S-300V4 long-range anti-aircraft missile systems battalions repelled the strike of aeroballistic missiles, carrying out combat launches at targets descending from an altitude of more than 200 km. At the second stage, the combat crews of the Buk-M3 medium-range air defense systems and the Tor-M2 short-range anti-aircraft missile systems battalions, after performing combat missile launches, repelled the attack of the imaginary enemy cruise missiles flying at altitudes less than 10 meters. The Buk-M3 air defense missile system hit targets at a distance of up to 40 km, and the Tor-M2 short-range anti-aircraft missile systems battalions, in turn, performed combat launches at air targets at a range of up to 15 km.

Also, during the exercise, combat vehicles “Typhoon-air defense” were involved, the calculations of which with the help of MANPADS “Verba” at the extreme line of air defense ensured the interception and destruction of the remaining air attack weapons of the “enemy” at a distance of up to 6 thousand meters and an altitude of 3.5 thousand meters.

In total, during the exercise, anti-aircraft gunners destroyed more than 30 air single and group targets at an altitude of 8 meters to 35 km, while missile launches were made at a range of 3 to 50 km. A feature of the exercise was that for the first time at the training ground, centralized combat work was carried out to fire groups of targets of various types, while the raid of various air attack weapons was carried out simultaneously.

All assigned targets were fired upon and destroyed.
