In the Moscow region, at the Alabino training ground, combat firing from RPG-7 and AGS-17 grenade launchers took place with servicemen of the Taman Motorized Rifle Division of the Guards Tank Red Banner Army of the Western Military District.

The servicemen learned to hit the manpower and armored equipment of the conditional enemy. The grenade launchers fired at a distance of 200 to 350 meters from the RPG-7 hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers at full-size targets imitating the tanks of a conventional enemy. The targets made it possible to assess the damage from hitting different parts of the tank, for a clear selection of the best aiming point.

Also, the servicemen fired at enemy personnel from automatic grenade launchers on the AGS-17 “Flame” machine at a distance of 800 to 1500 meters to the target.

More than 100 servicemen took part in the combat training classes and more than 50 units of weapons and military equipment were involved.
