In the Nizhny Novgorod region, at the Mulino training ground, as part of a joint battalion tactical exercise, servicemen of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District and servicemen of the Republic of Belarus worked out the maneuverable defense of tank and motorized rifle units to repel the offensive of a conditional enemy.

During the active phase of the exercise, tank and motorized rifle companies of Russia and Belarus fought a mobile battle with a change of firing positions. The servicemen were faced with the task of exhausting the enemy and luring them to prepared defensive lines, where the main forces awaited him. Also, as part of the exercise, the servicemen worked out the evacuation of a wrecked tank from the battlefield, field repairs and the return of military equipment to service. During the exercise, servicemen fired ammunition from T-72B3 tanks and BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles at distances from 800 to 2000 meters. Ground units covered helicopter pairs Mi-24 “Crocodile” from the air.

Having lured the enemy into the designated area, the BM-21 Grad multiple launch rocket systems opened fire, thereby turning the forces of the simulated enemy to an unorganized flight.

In total, more than 500 military personnel and over 150 units of weapons, military and special equipment are involved in the exercise. The joint battalion tactical exercise was the second stage of preparation for the strategic command and staff “West-2021”.
