At the Sergeevsky training ground of the motorized rifle unit of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed in the Primorsky Territory, the tank unit soldiers performed the first live firing with a regular projectile in the summer training period as part of an intensive training course.

In the course of live firing from T-72B3 tanks, the crews, using the experience of modern armed conflicts, hit targets imitating tanks and their accompanying lightly armored vehicles with anti-tank systems, as well as air assets of a simulated enemy. At the same time, aimed shooting from smooth-bore cannons and machine guns was carried out at emerging targets at distances from 800 to 3 thousand meters.

In addition to the accuracy of shooting, the crews honed their skills in driving tracked vehicles, detecting and destroying targets, in a rapidly changing environment, and coordinated actions in the conduct of combat as part of subunits.

Also, the tankers, under the guidance of experienced commanders-mentors, improved their theoretical knowledge in the basics and rules of firing from standard weapons. The lesson was organized in the training class of the training ground. At specially equipped training sites, the crews worked out the standards for fire training, NBC protection, engineering and medical training.

In total, over 200 contract servicemen were involved in the combat training event, about 50 units of military equipment were involved.
