Su-24 crews hold bombing exercise in Kaliningrad region

Bombing and providing air cover for a ground grouping of troops were practiced by pilots from the Baltic Fleet (BF) bombing aviation crews, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

"As part of routine drills the crews of Sukhoi Su-24 frontline bombers of the Fleet's aviation group carried out precision bombing strikes and destroyed the manpower and military hardware of an adversary at an aviation site in the Kaliningrad region," the BF said in a press release obtained by Interfax-AVN on Thursday.

The crews carried out precision bombing against full-size targets simulating engineering structures, manpower and hardware of an adversary.


The bombing was carried out at altitudes of between 500 and 1,000 meters, the BF spokesperson said.

"All actions of the pilots were registered by an objective monitoring system whose elements were installed on combat vehicles, as well as on the ground near the deployment area. The analysis of the data obtained by objective monitoring systems showed 100 percent destruction of all the targets," the statement said.

In addition to the bombing, the pilots practiced elaborate aerobatic maneuvers: verticals, horizontals and loops, the statement said.
