    Russian troops worked out all types of combat operations needed to repel military aggression at the Kavkaz-2016 command and staff exercises, the Defense Ministry said Friday.

    OPUK RANGE (Crimea), (Sputnik) – Ground troops, aviation groups and naval fleets took part in the drills, joined by the S-400 Triumf and S-300 Favorit missile systems and the Pantsir-S mobile surface-to-air systems across the Southern Military District.

    "The targets simulated the entire spectrum of aerial attack over the entire range of altitudes and speeds," ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.
