Servicemen of motorized rifle divisions of the army corps of the Eastern Military District (VVO) on Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands began to carry out control firing from standard weapons.

Shooting is carried out from a large-caliber machine gun “Kord” and is organized in three stages: first, firing points are suppressed, then artillery crews are destroyed and lightly armored vehicles of a conventional enemy are destroyed. In the classroom, the accuracy and speed of hitting targets is assessed.

Combat crews carry out shooting with a change of firing positions at emerging and moving targets, from a place and in motion, both in the daytime and at night.

At night, the crews of combat vehicles fire at fixed targets using illuminating rockets and tracer ammunition.

In total, about 700 servicemen of motorized rifle units of the army corps of the Air Defense Forces were involved in the shooting practice and more than 90 units of military equipment were involved.
