A large tactical exercise with motorized rifle, tank and artillery formations of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO) took place at the Sergeevsky training ground in the Primorsky Territory.

According to the concept of the exercise, one unit acted as a conditional enemy conducting offensive operations, while the other was on the defensive. Helicopters of the army aviation Ka-52 “Alligator” supported the defenders.

In the course of combat firing, reconnaissance and strike systems were widely used. At the same time, the coordinates of the command posts of the imaginary enemy brigades were given to the calculations of the Uragan multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) at a distance of about 25 kilometers using the Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicles, which made it possible to paralyze the enemy’s actions in minimal time intervals.

Fire strikes were made at a simulated enemy, who had taken refuge on opposite slopes of the mountains, from 240-mm self-propelled mortars “Tulip”. Also, effective fire destruction of the “enemy” was achieved by the active use of the “Strelets” reconnaissance, control and communications systems. They carried out target identification and guidance of self-propelled howitzers “Akatsia”, “Msta-S” and “Giatsint-S”, as well as MLRS “Grad”, which destroyed targets imitating armored vehicles and manpower of the enemy.

In addition, the tasks of maneuvering defense were worked out, the enemy’s offensive was stopped. In the future, a counterstrike was carried out by the forces of a motorized rifle formation with reinforcement units. During the training battle, air support was provided by about 10 helicopters of the army aviation Ka-52 “Alligator”.

For the first time in exercises of this nature, new armored personnel carriers BTR-82A were used, which entered service with the association at the end of 2020. During the stage of live firing, motorized rifle formations were used on armored vehicles BMP-2 and T-72B tanks.

The tactical exercise lasted for several days, more than 1.5 thousand servicemen took part in it, over 300 units of military equipment were involved.
