In the Strategic Missile Forces, following the results of the winter training period, control complex and final checks began in more than 80 military units and subunits of the Strategic Missile Forces.

The personnel of military units and subunits of missile formations are checked for all components of combat readiness, alert duty, and are also involved in control exercises in fire, special, technical, tactical, engineering and physical training.

Under the leadership of the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel-General Sergei Karakaev, a comprehensive check was carried out of the Omsk missile formation with a command post exercise (KSHU) with the Barnaul missile formation (Altai Territory).

More than 3,000 servicemen and about 300 pieces of equipment were involved in these exercises. After the completion of the command and control exercise in the Altai Territory, as part of a comprehensive check conducted under the leadership of the commander of the Omsk missile formation, a large-scale exercise will be held with the Novosibirsk missile formation.

The Strategic Missile Forces command is carrying out routine checks of formations and military units equipped with Yars mobile missile systems. Exercises and control exercises should show the real state of combat and mobilization readiness, combat training, as well as the level of mastering weapons, military and special equipment.

Formations equipped with other types of missile systems will also be subject to checks. Under the leadership of the commander of the Vladimir missile formation, a command post exercise with the Bologov missile formation (Tver region) will be held.

In addition, missile formations under the leadership of division commanders undergo control checks of missile regiments, security and support units.

In the course of inspections, missile regiments, support and security units work out measures to bring them to the highest degree of combat readiness, solve the tasks of bringing missile regiments to combat patrol routes, and work out joint tasks of engineering support, radiation, chemical and biological protection.

Also, the Strategic Missile Forces units are improving the practical actions of anti-sabotage groups to detect and destroy conditional sabotage and reconnaissance formations. Engineering units carry out the tasks of reconnaissance of the convoy routes, including with the use of modern technology, comprehensive support of field areas with the deployment of integrated water treatment plants and the installation of heavy mechanical bridges over water obstacles.

The purpose of control checks is to assess the coherence of practical actions of units and subunits, the skills of command, military personnel during the performance of tasks as intended in any conditions of the situation and time of day, as well as the organization and implementation of all types of support.

In total, more than 15,000 servicemen and about 3,000 pieces of equipment will be involved in inspections based on the results of the training period in the Strategic Missile Forces.
