Servicemen of a mountain motorized rifle formation of the combined-arms formation of the Central Military District (TsVO) destroyed the base camp of a simulated enemy during an exercise in the Republic of Tyva.

According to the plan of the event, the mountain riflemen received a combat training task to move into the hard-to-reach high-mountainous area and destroy the camp of the conditional enemy, in which the saboteurs were trained. The exact coordinates of the location and number of the “enemy” were obtained with the help of unmanned aerial vehicles “Orlan-10”.

The servicemen overcame the snow-covered mountain route, conducted reconnaissance activities and took up convenient positions for shooting. Under the cover of snipers and machine gunners, motorized riflemen attacked the camp, opening fire from RPG grenade launchers and Kalashnikov assault rifles. Targets were fired at a distance of up to 500 meters. The scattered forces of the mock enemy were destroyed from Dragunov sniper rifles (SVD) and Kord machine guns at distances of up to 1500 meters.

During the exercise, special attention was paid to the issues of interaction between military personnel in the performance of combat training missions, reconnaissance of targets in mountainous terrain and the correct determination of the range to them.

More than 500 military personnel took part in the combat training event.

For reference:

The combined arms formation of the Central Military District is deployed in the Novosibirsk, Kemerovo, Omsk, Tyumen, Irkutsk regions, Altai Territory and the Republic of Tyva. It includes motorized rifle, artillery, anti-aircraft missile formations, communications troops, radiation, chemical and biological defense.
