Over 1.5 thousand servicemen take part in the exercise, about 300 units of weapons and military equipment are involved, including T-72B3 tanks, self-propelled howitzers “Msta-S”, multiple launch rocket systems “Uragan”, “Grad”, the latest anti-tank the Kornet complex, the Pole-21 electronic warfare complex, and the Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) complexes.

During the week, tactical groups will confront each other, practicing various techniques and methods of training and combat operations.

For the first time, about 10 new tactical techniques and maneuvers in various conditions of modern combat will be tested during an exercise of this scale.

The exercise began with reconnaissance of the routes of advance with the help of UAVs and the advance deployment of air defense systems and radio jamming stations.

Subsequently, motorized rifle subunits will carry out a deceptive maneuver in order to draw the enemy into a “fire bag”. Then the troops, with the fire support of artillery and army aviation helicopters, will practice conducting a counterattack.

The features of the exercises will be non-standard methods of dealing with mobile high-speed targets of “militants”, conducting training and combat operations of subunits in a settlement at night, fighting a simulated enemy UAV.
