The exercises of Su-25 attack aircraft from the Russian Kant air base took place at an Edelweiss high-altitude training ground near Balykchi (Issyk-Kul region). The pilots carried out missile strikes at the camp and depot of conditional terrorists, and later attacked a mine-studded car.
«Pilots fulfilled the tasks of evading enemy air defense systems using heat traps. Air maneuvers were carried out in conditions of rarefied air and strong gusts of wind,» the channel said.
