More than 1.2 thousand cadets of the district training center for the training of junior specialists of motorized rifle and tank forces of the Eastern Military District (VVO) in the Trans-Baikal Territory began combat firing from the armament of the T-72B tank as part of their final exams.

In the course of the practical part of the lesson, servicemen perform control firing exercises, both from the spot and in motion at a target imitating a conventional enemy tank at a distance of more than 1.6 thousand meters. Also, servicemen will fulfill the standards for firing a Kalashnikov tank machine gun at a moving artillery gun and a grenade launcher.

At the same time, graduate cadets show skills and abilities in a constantly changing environment, which requires an instant reaction from tankers when firing.

After passing the final exams, they will go to the military units of the Eastern Military District for further service in the regular military positions of a driver-mechanic and a gunner-tank operator.
