Joint Exercises at Aviaindr 2014
Under the leadership of the Commander-in-chief from August 25 to September 5 our country for the first time in the history of Russian-Indian relations held the joint Air Force and Air Defense drills “Aviaindr 2014”. The observers included the delegations from Serbia, Jordan, Brazil and Egypt.
The start of combat work was given in several places at once. In Lipetsk aviation center the Indian pilots studied regions of upcoming flights and polished techniques of piloting at modern simulators of aircrafts Su-30SM and helicopters Mi-35, Mi-8MTV5. The crews of Su-30SM mastered the elements of in-flight refueling from tanker aircraft IL-78 (aerodrome Diaghilevo, Ryazan) and combat use against ground targets on the range Pogonovo (Voronezh region). Defense experts familiarized with the anti-aircraft missile systems in the training center of anti-aircraft missile troops in Gatchina.
In November, the next stage of the exercises “Aviaindr 2014” will take place, which (there is such a forecast) will be held regularly.
