Servicemen of the tank units of the combined arms army of the Western Military District have worked out the destruction of unmanned aerial vehicles of a simulated enemy during special exercises in the Bryansk region.
The tankers received intelligence about the use of the “enemy” tactics of a massive attack of small UAVs equipped with improvised explosive devices. The servicemen quickly moved to designated firing positions located on a hill, where they began to destroy the drones of the conditional group of an illegal armed formation.
As unmanned aerial vehicles, special lifting targets with horizontal and vertical travel paths about 30 m long were used. To destroy the “enemy” UAVs, military personnel used 6P50 “Kord” anti-aircraft machine guns, as well as Kalashnikov RPK light machine guns. Tankers were given no more than 15 seconds and a limited amount of ammunition to eliminate each target.
In total, about 150 servicemen of the tank units of the combined arms army of the Western Military District took part in special exercises to destroy the UAV of a mock enemy, about 30 pieces of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.
