MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian pilots in the Southern Military District are currently increasing their skills in extremely low altitude flights on Su-25SM Frogfoot close air support jets, the Russian Defense Ministry’s Southern Military District’s press service said Wednesday.

“During the flight training at extremely low altitude [as low as 25 meters above the ground], the military pilots will complete tasks of clandestine maneuvers of the fighter jets to avoid anti-aircraft missile systems of a conditional enemy,” the press service said in a statement.

The pilots will also practice emergency drills to include engine cutouts.
