With tank crews and crews of complexes with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) of the combined arms army of the Western Military District (ZVO), a tactical exercise was conducted using a special method at the Krinitsa training ground in the Voronezh region.

According to the concept of the exercise, the simulated enemy during the clash used thermal smoke curtains and smoke bombs to retreat to the main troops. In a real battle situation, the tankers had to prevent a retreat in a smoky area, as well as resist the enemy’s UAVs.

During the exercise, the tankers, with the help of the coordination of the Orlan-10 UAV operators, hit full-size targets from 125-mm smooth-bore cannons, simulating various enemy equipment, at a distance of up to 1.2 thousand meters with a rate of fire of up to three rounds per minute. Anti-aircraft machine guns “Kord” were used to destroy enemy UAVs.

In total, more than 400 military personnel were involved in the exercise, over 75 units of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.
