The conditions for performing the exercise are as close as possible to the combat ones and provide visibility and consistency of training, as well as a solid and conscious mastering of the techniques being worked out.

The practical lesson was preceded by briefings with the study of the theoretical part of driving technology.

On the route of the arrival, driver-mechanics and drivers covered a distance of more than six kilometers in forest-steppe terrain, overcame natural and artificial airborne assault vehicles BMD-4M, BMD-2K-AU, armored personnel carriers BTR-MDM “Shell” and wheeled vehicles of all-terrain KamAZ obstacles, including an anti-tank ditch, a track bridge, a passage through a mine-explosion barrier, ascents, descents and other obstacles.

In addition, the servicemen have practiced maneuvering techniques at high-speed sections, turns and turns of varying difficulty. Throughout the entire route of movement, to create conditions for a real battle, simulation tools were used.
