In the Nizhny Novgorod region, at the Mulino training ground, servicemen of a separate tank brigade of the Guards Tank Red Banner Army of the Western Military District (ZVO) carried out tank firing.

More than 50 T-72B3 tanks entered the firing line to defeat armored vehicles and manpower of the imaginary enemy. The servicemen fired from smooth-bore 125-mm guns at targets imitating armored vehicles, and hit 84% of targets, the distances to which varied from 1200 to 1800 m. Machine gunners fired at targets simulating the calculation of grenade launchers. An increased rate of fire became a feature of the shooting.

More than 200 servicemen took part in the fire training and over 70 units of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.
