The destruction of a conditional illegal armed formation (IAF) numbering about 1,500 militants at the Harb-Maidon training ground ended the main stage of the joint exercise of servicemen of the 201st Russian military base and units of the armed forces of the Republic of Tajikistan.

According to the legend, the drawing of illegal armed groups of about 1,500 people broke through the border and wedged into the depths of the territory. To suppress the pace of the offensive, engineering units blew up guided high-explosive shells, creating a “fire shaft” 500 meters long, as well as an anti-tank minefield.

To protect forward units from mined vehicles, the servicemen used anti-tank guided missiles, destroying vehicles filled with explosives at a distance of up to two kilometers.

At this time, the electronic warfare group using the Borisoglebsk-2 electronic warfare systems opened the enemy’s radio electronic means and blocked their communication and control channels, and then the calculations of the Leer-3 unmanned aerial vehicles sent SMS messages demanding surrender.

At the final stage, the crews of the Mi-8 and Mi-24 helicopters used the “helicopter roundabout” method, destroying the arriving reserves of illegal armed groups, and the crews of the Grad, Uragan and ACS Akatsia MLRS, dragging the enemy into a fire bag, completed its destruction …

The joint exercise of units of the Russian military base and the armed forces of the Republic of Tajikistan takes place from 19 to 23 April 2021 under the leadership of the commander of the troops of the Central Military District, Colonel-General Alexander Lapin.
