Russia’s armed forces are conducting a large scale air drill near its border with China and North Korea, the country’s state news agency Tass reported Tuesday.

According to the report, the unspecified number of Su-35 and Su-30 fighter jets, as well as Su-24M2 and Su-25 bomber jets would be involved.  

“During the practical stage of the drill, Su-35 and Su-30 pilots will serve as cover for Su-24M2 during overflight in a bomb deployment region. In addition, Su-35 and Su-30SM pilots from Khabarovsk region will practice elements of aerial combat at various heights, carry out search and escort and interception of jets of a hypothetical enemy whose role will be played by jets from Primorye”.

Tass reported that at the end of the training, the Su-35 fighters, Su-25 attack aircraft, and crews of the newest Su-34 bombers will perform bombing exercises on ground targets meant to represent groups of combatants at the “special ranges of the district in Primorye and the Khabarovsk Territory”.
