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.
