Recruits of reconnaissance units of the motorized rifle formation of the Southern Military District (YuVO) for the first time overcame a special obstacle course with elements of real combat at the Prudboy training ground in the Volgograd region to test their resistance to stress.

During the passage of the 500-meter obstacle course, the servicemen, alone and in groups, overcame more than 20 obstacles, including: wire barriers, ditches, trenches, iron pipes, destroyed and burning walls, underground passages, fragments of city structures and rubble. The scouts performed tasks in simulating explosions, blank firing, using smoke, fire and playing the sounds of battle.

The main goal of the obstacle course is to determine the psychological stability and readiness of servicemen to carry out training and combat missions as intended, and to coordinate the actions of subunits in stressful non-standard situations.

Since the beginning of the summer training period, more than 1.5 thousand servicemen of the Southern Military District have already passed a special obstacle course.
