Work observation aircraft provided by a group of fighters (at least two, one of which is fighting with enemy fighters, and the other being a reserve in the air, does not permit the work of the military and combat enemy aircraft), protecting them from excess on 500 meters above them and, In addition, of all fighters pinned down the enemy fighters.
