In the Nizhny Novgorod region, at the Mulino training ground, an active phase of a two-sided tactical exercise of a separate tank brigade and the Yampol motorized rifle regiment of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District (ZVO) took place.

During the active phase of the event, the servicemen bilaterally worked out the conduct of the defense and the transition to the counteroffensive. The tankers destroyed more than 50 armored vehicles of the mock enemy from the 125-mm guns of the T-72B3 and T-80BV tanks. Tank crews operated in conjunction with motorized rifle units. Motorized riflemen fired at the enemy’s manpower from small arms and automatic 30-mm cannons of BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles.

The artillery units of the tank brigade fired from self-propelled howitzers “Msta-S” direct fire. 152-mm high-explosive fragmentation ammunition inflicted great damage on the advancing manpower and lightly armored vehicles of the simulated enemy.

In total, more than 1000 military personnel and over 300 units of weapons, military and special equipment are involved in the exercise. The event takes place within the framework of control classes following the results of the winter training period.
