Air defence operations mean the deterring and destruction of the opponent’s air assault devices (planes, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles). Air Defence functions are fulfilled in the Defence Forces by means of on-ground weapon systems including missiles and guns. An overview of the activity in the airspace is relayed through radars and other equipment. The Air Defence Battalion conducts air defence training for conscripts – from the ranks of which air defence reserve units are formed for the Defence Forces – as well as for reservists, to refresh their specialised skills. Also, specialised basic and supplementary training is provided to active servicemen.
