MiG-31 will fly to the highest altitude during tactical flight drill in the Arctic
This week, units of renewed MiG-31 will perform operative tasks of tactical flight practice at most top height, in a mixed air regiment of the Northern Fleet. Aviators will climb to the lower stratosphere over the Arctic at an altitude of about 17 thousand meters.
During the training, air teams will also practice joint operations with bombers to destroy the units of a simulated opponent at sea, on land, and in the air.
Drills involve ten Su-24 and five MiG-31 supported by engineering, logistics, and communications staff of the air division. Flights will be conducted both at day and at night.
The principal mission of the flight-tactical training is to raise the professional expertise of pilots and to develop tactical abilities of joint operations.
