In the Primorsky Territory, motorized rifle units of the combined-arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO), together with the army aviation of the Air Force and Air Defense Association, conducted live-fire exercises to destroy conditional illegal armed formations (IAF).

During the active phase of the exercise, motorized riflemen switched from defense to a counterattack, during which fire from automatic cannons of the BMP-2 and small arms hit targets simulating the manpower and vehicles of illegal armed groups.

In addition, military engineers used Korshun explosive device seekers and IMPS mine detectors to overcome the mine and explosive obstacles set by the “enemy”. This made it possible to quickly organize passages in the barriers for their units.

Subsequently, the crews of the Ka-52 Alligator reconnaissance and attack helicopters provided fire support to motorized rifle units. Launches of unguided rockets destroyed the light armored vehicles of illegal armed groups.

In addition, the crews of the Ka-52 helicopters worked out the elements of complex aerobatics, en route flight to a given area, and reaching the target in the shortest possible time.

About 500 servicemen took part in the joint exercise, about 50 pieces of weapons and military equipment were involved, including about a dozen combat helicopters.
