A two-way company tactical exercise (RTU) with a motorized rifle formation of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Republic of Buryatia, ended with the stage of live firing at the Burduny range.

For five days, the issues of marches, arranging a field camp, organizing interaction with intelligence, artillery, radiation, chemical, biological defense, electronic warfare, assault and army aviation were worked out.

In one of the main stages of the two-way RTU, the two units confronted each other, performing various tactics using simulators and blank ammunition. This format of the exercise promotes the development of non-standard thinking among commanders and allows in practice to carry out various techniques in conditions as close as possible to combat.

During the main stage of the exercise, motorized riflemen defeated the vanguard of the mock enemy in a meeting engagement, seized the initiative and surrounded his grouping.

The cannon artillery of the Gvozdika self-propelled guns was used to destroy the main forces of the mock enemy. In the final phase of the exercise, motorized riflemen drove out scattered units of the “enemy” from their positions.

In the course of the offensive battle, the issues of combat, logistical and medical support were also worked out.

About 1,000 military personnel were involved in the exercise, over 200 pieces of weapons and military equipment were involved, including T-72B3 tanks, the Kornet anti-tank complex based on the BMP-3.
