Servicemen of the reconnaissance unit of the 58th Army of the Southern Military District (YuVO) in North Ossetia with the help of army aviation helicopters destroyed a convoy of a mock enemy.

According to the plan of the exercise, aerial reconnaissance recorded a convoy of vehicles with weapons moving in the mountains of the Caucasian ridge. To organize ambushes and raids on the route of the mock enemy, a reconnaissance group was deployed by helicopters of army aviation to the mountains. Using grenade launchers and sniper rifles, the scouts detained the mock enemy’s equipment and transmitted the coordinates to the artillery command post.

When practicing ambushes in the mountains, special attention was paid to the use of various methods of overcoming mountain rivers and gorges, transporting weapons and other cargo, and providing assistance to the victims.

More than 400 servicemen of the Southern Military District, over 60 pieces of equipment, including Mi-8 transport and combat helicopters, were involved in the exercises.
