Tankers of the combined arms army of the Western Military District conducted the first lessons on high-speed driving of tanks in the new summer training period at the Pogonovo training ground in the Voronezh region.

During the training, the servicemen performed tasks of high-speed passage of a special route equipped with 20 different artificial and natural obstacles: slopes, anti-tank ditches, track bridges and dune sections. Also, tankers in convoys at the maximum permissible speeds worked out the execution of sharp maneuvers, including turns and turns of varying complexity.

A special feature of the lesson was the active use of simulation tools: smoke grenades, explosives and blank ammunition, which make it possible to bring training conditions as close as possible to combat. In the context of modern dynamic combat, not only the attentiveness and concentration of servicemen were tested, but also the ability to work with other crews.

In total, more than 200 servicemen of the combined arms army of the Western Military District took part in high-speed tank driving lessons, about 40 units of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.
