MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the Nizhny Novgorod region, at the Mulino training ground, a joint battalion tactical exercise was held with the participation of servicemen of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District (ZVO) and the Republic of Belarus.
Tank and motorized rifle subunits worked out a maneuverable defense. The crews of the T-72B3 and BMP-2 fired densely at a distance of 800 to 2000 meters, changing firing positions. Mortar batteries, using the “Aistenok” reconnaissance complex and “Orlan-10” unmanned aerial vehicles, discovered and hit the firing positions of the imaginary enemy’s artillery.
During the defensive battle, subunits of the Western Military District and Belarus destroyed more than 40% of the enemy’s manpower and equipment. At the final stage of the exercise, the servicemen launched a counterattack in order to defeat the remaining retreating units.
In total, more than 500 military personnel and over 150 units of weapons, military and special equipment were involved. This event became the second stage of preparation for the strategic command-staff exercise “West-2021”.
