At the Divisional training ground in the Republic of Buryatia, the crews of the tank formation of the Eastern Military District (VVO) stationed in the Republic of Buryatia, in cooperation with the crews of infantry fighting vehicles (BMP-2), destroyed the command posts of the simulated enemy from closed firing positions at night.

The crews of the T-72B3 tanks completed the tasks of providing fire support to the advancing motorized rifle units. Shooting was carried out with an insert projectile, as well as from large-caliber machine guns at targets imitating the command posts of a conditional enemy.

In turn, the crews of infantry fighting vehicles hit targets representing manpower and lightly armored equipment of the conditional enemy. Military firing was carried out at night with the use of tracer ammunition and night vision devices.

When performing fire missions, motorized riflemen and tankers worked out the coherence of the crews in conducting a highly maneuverable battle, maintaining battle formations during an offensive, organizing communications and commanding subunits.
