Syrian, Russian forces conduct joint tactical training in Hama province

Syrian commandos and Russian air forces have carried out a groundbreaking joint tactical training exercise, as reported by the Russian defense ministry on Thursday.

The night drill took place in Syria’s Hama Province and marked the first of its kind for the two allies.

During the exercise, the forces responded to a scenario where a militant group had seized control of a community, putting civilians at risk. The devised plan by Russian and Syrian military commanders involved using airstrikes and artillery fire to disable perimeter defenses, followed by an airdrop of ground troops to secure the hostages, according to RT.

Russia deployed Su-35 multipurpose jets, Su-24 tactical bombers, and Ka-52 attack helicopters to “destroy armored vehicles and defensive positions of the simulated terrorists.”

Syrian Arab Army’s 25th Special Mission Forces Division carried out ground operations, with some troops utilizing Russian parachute systems for skydives from heights of 1,500 to 3,000 meters.

A press release highlighted the commendable level of coordination between the participating forces, appreciated by military leaders of both nations.
