At the Pogonovo training ground in the Voronezh region, a large-scale exercise was held with calculations of RPG-7V hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers and AGS-17 “Flame” automatic grenade launchers.

During the event, servicemen of the combined arms army of the Western Military District (ZVO) demonstrated their skills in quickly dismounting from combat vehicles, covert movement, recognizing targets from a long distance, as well as choosing a safe and advantageous firing position.

The grenade launchers as part of various units had to hit as many targets as possible at maximum ranges, imitating the enemy’s manpower and combat vehicles. Motorized riflemen were given no more than 15 seconds to load ammunition and fire.

To complicate the task, the grenade launchers had to hit targets in trenches, hollows and at various heights.

In total, more than 300 military personnel were involved in the exercise, about 80 units of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.
