Crimea's S-400 combat teams hold air defense drills
The combat teams of a battalion of S-400 Triumf surface-to-air missile systems stationed in Crimea redeployed launchers, practiced detecting targets and destroyed a notional enemy’s air attack weapons in drills, representative of the Black Sea Fleet’s press office Alexei Rulev said.
"The combat units of S-400 Triumf surface-to-air missile systems from a large unit of the Southern Military District’s Air Force and Air Defense Army that are stationed in Crimea held air defense drills," TASS cited the statement as saying.
The troops practiced displacing launchers and radar stations and then moved to new positioning areas. After deploying the launchers, the combat crews checked their position on the ground, after which they made them ready for operation and started gathering data on the air situation.
The drills wrapped up with electronic launches: the combat teams detected, tracked and destroyed the target simulating a notional enemy’s air attack weapons.
