In the Voronezh region, at the Pogonovo training ground, servicemen of motorized rifle units of the Vislensk division of the combined arms army of the Western Military District (ZVO) broke through the defenses of a conditional enemy who had seized the settlement.

According to the plan of the exercise, the gunners of the armored personnel carriers of the BTR-82A, together with the grenade launchers of the motorized rifle units, were to destroy the weakly defended firing positions. To prevent losses among the personnel, the servicemen moved at the highest possible speed for aimed shooting. The cover of military equipment and grenade launchers was provided by motorized riflemen armed with PKP Kalashnikov machine guns, AK-74M assault rifles, as well as SVD and SVD-S sniper rifles.

During the offensive, the servicemen worked out the methods of passing the mine-explosive obstacle, repelled the flank attack of the conditional reconnaissance and sabotage group, and also, taking advantage of the disorganization in the ranks of the conditional enemy, successfully liberated the settlement.

In total, over 500 servicemen of the combined arms army of the Western Military District took part in the exercises, about 150 units of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.
