MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
At the Tsugol interspecific training ground in the Trans-Baikal Territory, under the leadership of the Commander of the Eastern Military District (VVO), Hero of Russia, Colonel-General Gennady Zhidko, the final stages of a bilateral tactical exercise with two motorized rifle formations from the Khabarovsk Territory and the Amur Region were held.
During the drawing of practical actions, tactical groups of formations counteracted each other. At one of the stages, the servicemen worked out offensive actions with a counterstrike with the support of aviation groups as part of combat units. Motorized rifle and tank subunits on heavy armored vehicles, after deployment, attacked the front line of the “enemy’s” defense on the move, and then drove it to disadvantageous positions. After the offensive operations were carried out, the subunits took up defensive positions in preparation for conducting combat training operations at night.
The exercise ended with stages of live firing, one of which was conducted at night.
In particular, the army reserve on T-80BV tanks fulfilled the task of defeating an advancing column of mock enemy equipment, firing from closed firing positions in the false area of the grouping of forces.
In turn, the mixed artillery grouping with cannon and rocket artillery fire, including the Uragan long-range multiple launch rocket systems, destroyed large reserves of the imaginary enemy.
More than 20 aircraft and helicopters, including the Su-25 “Grach”, Su-30SM and Mi-24, with bomb strikes and missile launches, suppressed air defense systems and destroyed critical facilities.
In addition, air defense units carried out fire engagement of air targets, using portable Igla anti-aircraft missile systems at various altitudes.
The drawing took place at a training ground unfamiliar to the military personnel, where the formations marched in a combined way over 2 thousand kilometers long.
