During the training, the air defense systems were controlled from the united command post using the modern set of the Barnaul-T automated control system. At the same time, the reconnaissance and fire control planning modules were used as a multimedia simulator, and the air defense strike control was carried out against virtual targets.

While fulfilling the assigned tasks, the combat crews performed missile launches at targets that simulated both single and group air assets of a simulated enemy at various altitudes and with different speed characteristics.

More than 200 servicemen of the Southern Military District took part in the training, more than 20 pieces of weapons and military equipment were involved, including combat crews of the Tor-M2 air defense missile system, the Tunguska-M anti-aircraft cannon-missile systems and the Strela-10 air defense system.
