The grenade launchers of the motorized rifle unit of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, within the framework of fire training exercises, performed firing practice exercises with strong gusts of side wind reaching 20 m / s.

Due to the deteriorating weather conditions, the unit commanders conducted special classes in ballistics. The grenade launchers were taught to calculate crosswind corrections depending on its speed and direction.

In the future, the grenade launchers performed firing practice exercises to destroy armored vehicles and vehicles from RPG-7V grenade launchers and the accumulation of mock enemy manpower from AGS-17 automatic grenade launchers.

The acquired skills to correctly take into account the crosswind allowed the servicemen to hit targets from the first shot.

More than 300 servicemen took part in the lesson, about 100 units of weapons and military equipment of the motorized rifle unit of the Air Defense Forces were involved.
