Tankers of the combined arms army of the Western Military District (ZVO), in preparation for the large-scale strategic Russian-Belarusian exercise “West-2021”, fired with a regular projectile at the Pogonovo training ground in the Voronezh region.

During the firing, the crews of the T-72B3 tanks worked out a continuous offensive against the “enemy” troops in a combined arms battle. During the offensive, the tankers carried out reconnaissance as quickly as possible and identified the emerging dynamic targets that imitated armored vehicles, and hit them at a distance of up to 1.2 thousand meters.

A key feature was the performance of live firing on a single target field, which required from the military personnel increased coordination in the selection of targets for destruction.

In preparation for the West-2021 strategic exercise, tankers have been training intensively for about a month in driving combat vehicles, shooting accuracy and performing complex tactical elements, including at night. The daily training time for tankers is about eight hours a day.

In total, over 150 tankers of the combined arms army of the Western Military District took part in the firing, about 30 units of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.
