The crews of the T-72B3 tanks of the motorized rifle formation of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, at the Tsugol training ground, carried out the first test firing with a regular projectile this year. Classes were held both in the daytime and at night.

Earlier, the tankers made a combined march from the point of permanent deployment in the city of Borzya to the training ground as part of the unit.

During the training, the T-72B3 crews moved to firing positions, made their engineering equipment and camouflage, and also organized interaction with support units.

Later, the tankers fired on the move from a 125-mm T-72B3 cannon with a regular projectile at emerging and moving targets at a distance of up to 2 km, as well as from a Kord heavy machine gun and a coaxial tank machine gun.

In addition, the tank crews carried out flanking fire on the move, which is a complex element of fire training.

More than 100 servicemen took part in the field exercises, and about 50 units of weapons and military equipment were involved.
