MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the mountains of the Kuban, special-purpose units of the Southern Military District (YuVO) conducted a special tactical exercise on operations in the rear of a simulated enemy in cooperation with army and unmanned aircraft.
Spetsnaz groups carried out parachuting and assault landing from helicopters with fire support from a pair of Mi-35M attack helicopters and conducted reconnaissance of the area for the presence of high-precision weapons and the nature of the imaginary enemy’s defense system.
In the course of practical actions, methods of detecting camouflaged command posts, radio stations and communication centers, accumulations of equipment and ammunition depots, as well as capturing strategically important objects of the “enemy” were worked out.
In addition, the servicemen improved the skills of covert movement on the ground, the arrangement of long-term observation posts and survival in isolation from the main forces, as well as the combat use of modern weapons and technical means of reconnaissance, including the latest optoelectronic observation systems “Irony”, which make it possible to organize observation in the thermal imaging range.
“Irony” consists of two models of portable and transportable (stationary) use for carrying as part of a reconnaissance group at long ranges and installing the complex on special armored vehicles “Tiger” and “Lynx”.
More than 300 servicemen of the Southern Military District were involved in the exercise, armored vehicles and unmanned aircraft complexes were involved.
