"Kamchatka" successfully launched "training" cruise missiles
September 21 As part of an exercise, the crews of the Tu-2014MS strategic bomber missile launchers carried out successful launches of air-based cruise missiles at ground targets at the Kura proving ground (Kamchatka Krai), the Defense Ministry’s press service reported.
Strategic bomber-bomber Tu-95MS from the air base Ukrainka were involved in practical activities.
The crews of strategic missile carriers, taking off from the Ukrainka airfield, made an 4-hour flight over low-grade terrain and launched cruise missiles in the northern part of the Sea of Okhotsk at their designated targets at the Kura range. All targets were successfully hit.
In addition to launching missiles at the Kura test site, missile-carrying bombers Tu-95MS carried out the launch of cruise missiles that imitated means of air attack.
To intercept missiles from the Elizovo airfield (Kamchatka Territory), MiG-31 interceptor fighters were raised on alarm, which searched for, detected, captured, escorted cruise missiles and destroyed them with air-to-air missiles.
After completing the task, a group of officers of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation carried out a thorough analysis of objective control materials confirming the successful fulfillment of combat training tasks, as well as the actions of the crews of the aircraft and the calculations of ground-based radar posts, which were targeting the aircraft.
