To this end, these maneuvers are carried out, in which various training scenarios have been created: defense of the airspace, protection of helicopters and ground transport vehicles in humanitarian operations, close air support for ground forces and special operations, cargo dropping and paratroopers, extraction of elements with or without air threat, search and Rescue in combat zones and conventional attacks with guided weapons on fixed and mobile targets.
