Servicemen of the mountain motorized rifle unit of the combined-arms formation of the Central Military District (CVD) during a training exercise in the foothills of the Western Sayan practiced offensive maneuvers against the camp of a conditional enemy using Tiger armored vehicles and mountain horses of a pack-transport unit.

During the exercise, the military personnel of the unmanned aviation unit using the Orlan-10 UAV opened a camouflaged camp of a mock enemy in a mountain gorge. To destroy it, the military personnel of reconnaissance and motorized rifle units on armored vehicles “Tiger” and a pack-transport unit of mountain shooters on horseback were sent to the hard-to-reach area. Having overcome the mountainous terrain along roads and trails, the servicemen passed through hidden approaches to the camp of the mock enemy, surrounded it, and then destroyed the members of the illegal armed formation (IAF) using RPG-7V grenade launchers, Tray mortars and small arms.

More than 500 military personnel, about 30 units of military equipment, as well as more than 15 pack horses were involved in the exercise.

The combined arms formation of the Central Military District is deployed in the Novosibirsk, Kemerovo, Omsk, Tyumen, Irkutsk regions, Altai Territory and the Republic of Tyva. It includes motorized rifle, artillery and anti-aircraft missile formations, RChBZ and communications troops.
