The formations of the 58th Combined Arms Army of the Southern Military District (YuVO) worked out combat training tasks as part of heterogeneous tactical tasks at the Opuk combined arms range in the Crimea.

The actions of the command staff of the formation at the field command post were assessed by the commander of the Southern Military District, General of the Army Alexander Dvornikov.

The officers at the command post demonstrated the ability to solve tasks by attached units as part of tactical groups in the course of a bilateral tactical exercise.

The commander of the Southern Military District noted the effectiveness of unconventional approaches in the formation of tactical groups for specific tasks.

“A tactical group as a designer should include units capable of performing the assigned task, as well as forces and means of covering and ensuring survivability,” General of the Army Alexander Dvornikov explained.

Reminding the officers of saving personnel, weapons and equipment, the commander of the Southern Military District clarified the procedure for the use of units of various types of troops, depending on the tasks and data about the enemy.

Taking into account the combat experience of modern armed conflicts, powerful tank and artillery units or mobile motorized rifle companies on armored personnel carriers can be involved in the tactical groups of the Southern Military District. To ensure survivability, subdivisions of electronic warfare, air defense, radiation, chemical and biological protection, engineering troops, crews of unmanned aircraft, anti-tank and sniper units are involved.

As part of the control check during the winter training period, bilateral tactical exercises are for the first time held simultaneously at various training grounds in the Southern Military District. Formations and military units are working out tasks in defense in cooperation with the forces of the 4th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Southern Military District, the Black Sea Fleet and the Caspian Flotilla.
