More than 1,800 training flights will reportedly be made by pilots of an aviation regiment of the Su-25SM attack aircraft stationed in Russia’s Southern Military District before the end of this year.

By the end of 2015, pilots from an aviation regiment of Su-25SM attack aircraft stationed in Russia’s Southern Military District will make over 1,800 sorties using standard weapons. They will perform more than 900 practical bombings, drop more than 1,500 bombs and launch at least 2,000 unguided air-to-surface missiles, according to the Russian TV network Zvezda, which is run by the Russian Defense Ministry.

The broadcaster said that one third of firing and bombings will take place at night amid bad weather conditions. The exercises will focus on the use of standard weapons in mountainous areas and in different frequency ranges.
