Motorized riflemen of the Southern Military District (YuVO) formations on BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles overcame water obstacles in natural reservoirs at the Prudboy combined-arms training ground in the Volgograd region.

Driving exercises afloat were performed on the Karpovka River in the Volgograd region. Mechanics of the BMP-3 in the water bypassed special buoys indicating obstacles, performed turns, practiced actions in the event of emergency situations and other maneuvers.

Water obstacles are one of the most difficult obstacles for combat vehicle crews. Before training in the reservoir, the servicemen studied safety requirements, passed swimming standards, completed a course of light diving training and practiced emergency escaping of vehicles on special simulators.

More than 500 servicemen of the Southern Military District are involved in the classes, which are held in shifts, about 100 units of military and special equipment are involved.
