MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Young pilots of the army aviation of the Eastern Military District conducted the first live firing, destroying the objects of the imaginary enemy with launches of unguided aviation missile shells (NURS).
Before the start of flights with the combat use of weapons, the officers of the command of the Air Force and Air Defense Association of the Air Defense Forces congratulated the young lieutenants on the first firing with combat use, as well as on their professional holiday and wished them further success in protecting the skies of the Far East.
The flights were carried out singly and in pairs on the Ka-52 Alligator and Mi-8AMTSh Terminator helicopters at one of the VVO training grounds.
The crews of the army aviation conducted reconnaissance of the terrain and timely detected the air defense systems of the imaginary enemy, suppressing the firing points with an aimed salvo of NURS from Ka-52 helicopters. In addition, air bombs were dropped on the convoy of “enemy” military equipment by the crews of Mi-8AMTSh helicopters.
Each helicopter crew received an individual flight mission to perform maneuvering in order to evade the “enemy” air defense systems.
The purpose of the flights was for young lieutenants to gain the first practical experience in performing complex flights with combat use.
Since the beginning of the year, about 100 young lieutenants have joined the ranks of the military aviation of the Air Defense Forces, who have already conducted firing with combat use.
