With the calculations of multiple launch rocket systems “Hurricane” and “Tornado-G” of the combined arms army of the Western Military District, special tactical exercises were carried out to lay cover minefields in the Smolensk region.

According to the concept of the exercise, tankmen and motorized riflemen of the combined-arms army of the Western Military District entered into battle on the close lines with the attacking units of the simulated enemy.

The MLRS crews on command created a constraining minefield using unguided rockets at a distance of about 700 meters from the flanks and rear of the “enemy”. Thus, the gunners severely limited the space for maneuvers and retreat for the units of the imaginary enemy.

In total, about 500 servicemen took part in special tactical exercises, over 50 units of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.
