At a training ground in the Chelyabinsk region, servicemen of a tank regiment of the Guards Tank Division of the Central Military District (CVO) at night worked out blocking and destroying a column of armored vehicles

According to the concept of the exercise, combat formations operating as part of maneuverable fire groups on T-72B3 tanks were to repel a breakthrough by superior enemy forces crossing an open area of ​​terrain at high speed.

During the drawing of the tactical episode, the tankers overcame a difficult mud track with steep climbs and began to observe. Having received the coordinates of the targets assigned to defeat, the crews of the T-72B3 tanks opened fire on small targets that imitated observation devices on enemy armored vehicles. Aimed shots from 125-mm smooth-bore guns, the tankers stopped the advance of the forward groups of the conditional enemy. Then, having completed a high-speed bypass of the stopped convoy, the tankers completed the destruction by organizing a tank carousel. The accuracy of shooting at night at a range of up to 2 thousand meters was ensured by the Sosna-U multichannel sight with a thermal imager.

Air reconnaissance of the training and combat situation and the opening of the combat and numerical strength of the conditional enemy were provided with the attached calculations of the Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicles.

In total, more than 500 military personnel took part in the exercise; more than 600 units of military equipment and unmanned aircraft calculations were involved.
