    Medium multi-purpose helicopters ‘Mi-8s’ along with larger gunships ‘Mi-24s’ can be seen flying alongside the Baltic Sea coastline and later hitting ground targets with guns and missiles. According to the Defense Ministry, they also trained in evading enemy fire, and completed over 30 flights during the drill.
