The Russian Baltic fleet naval aviation and PVO aircraft participated in a bombing exercise at the Opuk training ground in Crimea. 

The training and combat missions were carried out by seven aircraft-types belonging to the naval aviation and air-defense of the Black Sea Fleet. 

According to the mission report, the Su-24 MR reconnaissance aircraft was tasked to spot an enemy command post in the mountains. Multipurpose fighters like the Su-30 SM, the Su-27 as well as the Su-24M front-line bombers then struck the targets after avoiding “enemy” air-defense at various altitudes as part of the exercise.

During the training flights, the crews complied with the emergency departure standards and successfully bombed ground targets near Mount Konchekskaya, using a total of 12 bombs of the type OFAB-250-270, a high-explosive fragmentation bomb.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
