When a conditioned opponent who was over the Arctic Ocean, without going into the zone protivovovozdushnoy defense, made cruise missile launch, isstrebiteley group of four MiG-31, has rocketed to intercept it. Managing a group of fighters and guidance to the target was carried out with airborne early warning aircraft A-50. Working as with the A-50, and independently by exchanging information with each other, the MiG-31 are capable of detecting and destroying small-sized high-speed targets flying at low altitude, such as air-launched cruise missiles. Five of them can carry out missile defense of the vast region, controlling the area, for example, only the Arctic, or the Far East.

Launched by the complex trajectory cruise missile, first went to the side of the Kara Sea, made a hook on it and returned back nearly an hour looped over the tundra, trying to confuse the missile defense system. However, this did not prevent the fighters to detect the launch of a cruise missile-offending, to make its maintenance and destroy with missiles air-to-air before she could reach the target at the range Pemba.
Perform combat mission crews had in a dense cloud cover makes it difficult visual target detection, so everything had to do almost blindly, in devices, which further brought scientists closer to a real combat situation, however, nothing to prevent the exercise participants to perform the task.
According to the Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu, similar unannounced inspections of readiness will be to continue to improve the level of defense and Russia.
