Tankers of the motorized rifle unit of the Southern Military District (YuVO) began their first field trips in the summer training period at the Prudboy training ground in the Volgograd region.

The training, which will last about a month, involved about 100 tankers of the Southern Military District, more than 30 units of military and special equipment, including modern T-90A tanks.

Each tank crew will have more than 40 hours of comprehensive training in driving combat vehicles, more than 30 hours of fire training. Every second lesson is held at night.

Before entering the training ground, tank crews worked out training tasks on special computer training complexes equipped with exact copies of the workplaces of driver mechanics, gunners and tank commanders.

The main goal of the field exit is to improve teamwork and consolidate the professional skills of the crews.

The field exit of tankers will end in mid-July with control training firing with a regular 125-mm artillery projectile.
