On the day of the beginning of the new summer training period, snipers and grenade launchers of the combined arms army of the Western Military District began training as part of professional training at the training grounds for the deployment of troops in the Voronezh, Belgorod, Smolensk and Bryansk regions.

During the month, servicemen will undergo comprehensive training, the result of which will be the execution of control shooting exercises. As part of comprehensive training, servicemen will work in a limited time environment, during which they must reconnoitre the target and determine the distance to it, calculate all corrections for external conditions and hit targets with the first shot at the vulnerable spots of military equipment – seating areas of personnel, stowage of ammunition, engine compartment and fuel tank.
