In the Moscow region, at the Alabino training ground, servicemen of the Taman Motorized Rifle Division of the Guards Tank Red Banner Army of the Western Military District conducted live firing of grenade launchers as part of their training camp.

During live firing, the grenade launchers fired at targets imitating heavily armored vehicles from RPG-7V hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers. Dynamic targets on rail platforms were located at a distance of 600 to 1000 meters and moved along the target field at a speed of about 15-20 kilometers per hour, which made it difficult for the military to aim.

Calculations of automatic grenade launchers AGS-17 “Flame” repelled the offensive of enemy manpower. The soldiers fired at a distance of 1000 to 1500 meters.

In total, the grenade launchers fired over 200 shots and destroyed over 150 targets imitating enemy tanks and manpower.
