In the course of company tactical exercises (RTU), servicemen practice the issues of conducting defensive and offensive actions, blocking and destroying sabotage and reconnaissance groups of a conventional enemy, and occupying company strongpoints. In addition, in the course of combat training, servicemen practice actions upon detection of mine-explosive and other obstacles, the procedure for overcoming them, combat protection, as well as withdrawal from battle and withdrawal using the terrain.

To create conditions as close as possible to combat, the complex situation of modern combined arms combat was modeled at the training grounds of the Baltic Fleet and targets for destruction from all types of small arms and combat vehicles were installed. In addition, training minefields, wire and other non-explosive barriers, and obstacles have been equipped, and means of simulating fire damage from a conventional enemy are actively used. Upon completion of the exercise, engineering units will clean up the landfills from all types of ammunition.

During the RTU, units of motorized riflemen, tankmen and artillerymen in cooperation with engineering, reconnaissance units, crews of unmanned aerial vehicles and military air defense, electronic warfare and radiation, chemical and biological protection units will use up more than 50 thousand ammunition for small arms, over 4 thousand various grenades , more than 5000 mines and artillery shells.
