In the Nizhny Novgorod region, at the Mulino training ground, as part of a joint two-way company tactical exercise, servicemen of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District and servicemen of the Republic of Belarus stopped the offensive of tank and motorized rifle subunits of the conditional enemy.

During the exercise, mortar batteries, using the Aistenok reconnaissance complex and Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicles, discovered and destroyed enemy artillery firing positions. Tank and motorized rifle crews fired heavily from dug-in T-72B3 tanks and BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles at a distance of 800 to 2000 meters. In the course of conducting a defensive battle, subunits of the Western Military District and Belarus destroyed more than 40% of the manpower and equipment of the conditional enemy.
