    Over 2000 service personnel from the Marine Corps and the 11th Army Corps took part in a tactical training exercise at the Khmelevka range in Kaliningrad, Friday. The soldiers were supported by specialist equipment including 20 warships and 12 aircraft from the Baltic fleet’s aviation reserves. During the opening stages, Su-24 bombers and Mi-24 attack helicopters launched missiles on the enemy, which was followed up by special naval forces being deployed from MI-8 transport choppers. Other parts of the drill included amphibious assault vehicles seizing the coastline and capturing enemy mortar positions.
