In the Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod regions, more than 1,000 servicemen of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District went to the test ranges in T-80 and T-72B3 tanks to destroy the mock enemy.

During live firing at the Mulino, Alabino and Golovenki ranges, the tankers destroyed over 150 imaginary enemy vehicles with a regular projectile, as well as from a large-caliber anti-aircraft machine gun at emerging and moving targets imitating a moving tank, an anti-tank grenade launcher and a recoilless artillery gun at a distance of 700 up to 2 km. Targets appeared in the engagement zone for a short time, which required instant reaction and accuracy from tankers when firing. The driver-mechanics performed a number of tasks to overcome natural and man-made obstacles.

More than 300 units of weapons and military equipment of the ZVO tank association were involved in the fire training events.
