THE RESULT OF THE AIR STRIKE
LANDING OPERATION EVALUATION (FOR IL-76 AIRCRAFT)
The accuracy of landing is evaluated (maximum 250 points).

The evaluation is made by comparing the cargo actual deviation.

The operational use evaluation is made by the inspection of the target.

If the task is carried out with the additional re-run, the score of the crew is to be 10 points lower, for each additional re-run (0 points for two or more re-runs).

If the flight task is not carried out for reasons beyond the crew's control, the task is to be evaluated as "not carried out" and the competition supervisor can give the crew another mission.
SU-24, SU-34 AIRCRAFT
THE AIR STRIKE RESULT OF TARGET BOMBING IN LEVEL FLIGHT IS TO BE EVALUATED (MAXIMUM 100 POINTS):

100 points — for a hit with radial displacement error of a bomb's point of explosion equal to the "excellent" mark according to bombing standards of 2014.
50 points — for a hit with radial displacement error of a bomb's point of explosion equal to the "good" mark according to bombing standards of 2014.

THE AIR STRIKE RESULT OF AN UNGUIDED AIR-TO-SURFACE MISSILE LAUNCH WHILE DIVING AFTER THE RE-RUN IS TO BE EVALUATED (MAXIMUM 100 POINTS):

— 100 points — for one or more direct hits.
— 10 points — for a hit within the zone around the target.
SU-25, SU-27, SU-30, MIG-29 AIRCRAFTS AND KA-52, MI-24 (MI-35), MI-28N, MI-8 HELICOPTERS
PAIR AIR STRIKE RESULT SHOULD BE EVALUATED (200 POINTS MAX):


— 100 points for one or more direct target hits.
— 10 points for a hit within the zone around the target.
PENALTIES
In order to estimate the target approach at the set time by the accuracy of the target approach at the set time, the deviation of the actual time of approach are to be compared with the set time according to standards for the corresponding flying conditions and navigation instrument (maximum 50 points).
