Servicemen of the newly formed motorized rifle regiment of the 58th combined-arms army of the Southern Military District (YuVO) in Ingushetia have begun to develop modern armored personnel carriers BTR-82A.

The crews of combat vehicles will be given fire training and driving lessons at the Tarskoye training ground. Drivers will practice maneuvering techniques at high-speed sections, turns and turns of varying difficulty, will pass the route as part of a convoy at the maximum and minimum permissible speeds, as well as overcome various obstacles.

Throughout the entire route of the route, servicemen will monitor the tactical situation and overcome imitation obstacles, where smoke grenades and explosion packets are used to create a situation close to combat.

Upon arrival at the firing line, the crews will hit targets simulating enemy equipment and firing positions from the 2A72 rapid-fire 30-mm cannon. Shooting will be carried out at emerging and moving targets at distances from 400 to 800 m. For the purpose of correcting fire, servicemen will use tracer ammunition.
