A Russian Air Force Sukhoi 30SM fighter jet with a Friendly Fire A Sukhoi 35 fighter jet was shot down and both pilots ejected it.
In the Russian Air Force, even during air training, the fighter cannonball is not fired, only during training, the technical team removes the electronic board related to firing the cannon so that it is not possible to shoot the cannon from inside the cockpit.
In this incident, the operator of the ground technical team apparently forgot to take the cannon of the Sukhoi 35 fighter, and during the dogfight training of this fighter with the Sukhoi 30, after the pilot of the Sukhoi 35 was in the firing position, he fired, which in training mode only hit the target. Capture, and this means the loss of the target fighter, and the image of Hood is sent to the ground control station, and the pilot of the target fighter immediately notices his loss, but in this incident, instead of capturing the target, he fired a 30 mm cannon of the Sukhoi 35 fighter. And the middle part of the engines of the Sukhoi 30SM fighter has grated to the back of the cockpit.
