Servicemen of the tank and motorized rifle units of the Yelninskaya division of the combined arms army of the Western Military District stopped the attack of the mock enemy during special tactical exercises at the Dorogobuzh training ground in the Smolensk region.

According to the plan of the exercise, the Orlan-10 UAV operators discovered the main enemy forces preparing for a flank attack. Tankmen and motorized riflemen of the combined-arms army of the Western Military District, taking into account the landscape features, prepared firing positions on advantageous lines, after which they began to lure the excess forces into a “fire bag” with maneuver groups, which also closed the encirclement ring.

The main forces of the conditional enemy, including manpower and armored vehicles, imitated special radio-controlled targets. In total, during the exercise, the servicemen hit over 320 targets at a distance of 600 to 1800 meters.

More than 500 military personnel of the ZVO combined-arms army took part in the special tactical exercises at the Dorogobuzh training ground, about 90 units of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.
