In the Nizhny Novgorod region, at the Mulino training ground, the active phase of a joint two-sided company tactical exercise of servicemen of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District and servicemen of the Republic of Belarus has ended.

During the active phase of the exercise, the servicemen crossed the Lyulikh River and marched 20 kilometers in armored vehicles to take up firing positions. The BM-21 Grad multiple launch rocket systems delivered a massive blow to the front edge of the advancing enemy forces, after which they changed their firing position, covering their movement with smoke screens.

Tank and motorized rifle armies, together with the Belarusians, held the defense for 4 hours, destroying the equipment of the conditional enemy from 125-mm tank guns, RPG-7V grenade launchers and manpower from small arms and 30-mm BMP-2 automatic cannons.

In total, more than 300 military personnel and over 50 units of weapons, military and special equipment are involved in the exercise. The joint company tactical exercise was the first stage of preparation for the strategic command and staff “West-2021”.
