Crews of aircraft complexes with unmanned aerial vehicles "Leer-3" and SuperCam-350 performed the exercise "Withdrawal from the impact" at the Pogonovo training ground in the Voronezh region.

According to the conditions of the competition, the crews developed a safe route out of the encirclement of the reconnaissance group, which was opposed by three groups imitating the enemy. 

The complexity of the stage was the difficulty of identifying different groups from the height at which the UAV operates, as well as ensuring consistency between the UAV crew and the reconnaissance group operating on the ground. 

Penalty minutes in this exercise were awarded separately for inaccuracies in determining coordinates and azimuths, as well as for indicating the wrong direction of the unit's safe exit.

With the least number of penalty minutes, the task was completed by the crew of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, showing a time of 1 hour 16 minutes. The crew from the Republic of Belarus brought the conditional reconnaissance group out of the fire with the second time: 2 h 34 min 45 sec.

The "Falcon Hunting" international competition is held as part of the Army international games from August 23 to September 5. Operators of unmanned aircraft systems from Russia and Belarus compete in conducting aerial reconnaissance, correcting artillery fire, and ensuring the accuracy of ground units
