In the Nizhny Novgorod region, at the Mulino training ground, tankmen of a separate tank brigade of the Guards Tank Red Banner Army of the Western Military District practice driving tanks in the dark.

The conscript servicemen studied the combat capabilities and device of the T-72B3 tanks in a matter of months, and also received the initial driving skills. The driver-mechanics overcame difficult sections of the route, including stopping and starting movement on mountain ascents and descents, a narrow iron bridge, anti-tank ditches and various artificial obstacles. The end of the training will be the performance of control firing in the dark along the established route of the track with a length of about 6 kilometers.

In total, over 500 servicemen and about 100 units of weapons, military and special equipment of a separate tank brigade of the tank formation of the Western Military District are involved in the classes.
