With the recruits of the combined arms army of the Western Military District (ZVO), called up in the spring of this year, training began in throwing combat grenades at training ranges in the Voronezh, Belgorod, Smolensk, Bryansk and Kursk regions.

Previously, young servicemen studied all the safety requirements and the tactical and technical characteristics of the RGD-5 hand fragmentation grenades, after which they will practice throwing from armored vehicles, trenches and other shelters, as well as from various positions, for two weeks.

A feature of the current training was the reduction of the time to 20 seconds from the command “Grenade – fire” to its break. Thus, the recruits will have to quickly determine the range to the target, the angle of throw, as well as the ability to roll a grenade off the slope.

In the course of the training, more than 3 thousand servicemen of the combined arms army of the Western Military District use about 6 thousand training and combat grenades for practical training in throwing at range and accuracy.
