A large tactical exercise began with servicemen of motorized rifle, artillery and tank units of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO). The event is being held under the leadership of the commander of the formation, Major General Alexei Podivilov, at the Sergeevsky training ground in the Primorsky Territory.

According to the concept of the exercise, one unit acts as a “conditional enemy” leading offensive actions, while the other is on the defensive.

The tactical exercise involved about 300 units of military equipment, including infantry fighting vehicles, tanks, mortar systems, cannon and self-propelled artillery, multiple launch rocket systems, and unmanned aerial vehicles. During the active phase of the exercise, the servicemen will have to hit over 3,000 targets imitating the manpower and military equipment of the “enemy”.

Particular attention is paid to the use of military aviation helicopters of the Air Defense Forces and the fight against UAVs.

More than 1,000 servicemen are involved in the exercise, which will last for several days.
