Russian Black Sea Fleet conducts aerial training over Crimea

18th March 2020 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Russia’s Black Sea Fleet has carried out training drills involving at least 20 fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft in Crimea.

According to reports from TASS, Su-24Mand Su-30SM aircraft were involved.

The exercise included two phases. In the first, aircrew practiced evacuating ground forces and redeploying aircraft to provide support. Secondly, aircraft were used to launch unguided missiles and bombs on a variety of land and sea targets.

Russian drills have continued in recent weeks despite the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has had a significant impact on planned military exercises that were due to be held by Western armed forces.
