MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The security and reconnaissance units work out covering the field positions of the Tagil missile formation in cooperation with the crews of the Mi-8AMTSh transport and combat helicopters, and also conduct aerial reconnaissance of the terrain as part of the control check of the Strategic Missile Forces.
To neutralize the “saboteurs” groups were brought in to combat sabotage and reconnaissance formations.
In addition, the integrated use of army and unmanned aircraft made it possible to detect and neutralize sabotage and reconnaissance groups (DRG) on the distant approaches to field positions.
Along with transport and combat helicopters, UAVs of various purposes and modifications are actively used for reconnaissance of combat patrol routes and detection of DRGs and for conducting engineering and chemical reconnaissance. For example, in the positional area of the missile division, the Eleron aircraft are used to guard the Yars mobile missile systems and to search for sabotage groups.
Army aviation helicopters to combat sabotage and reconnaissance formations outnumbering the regular security and reconnaissance units were first widely used in 2020 during the final command post exercises with the Irkutsk missile formation.
In total, more than 3 thousand servicemen and about 300 pieces of equipment were involved in the exercise.
