MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

In the Nizhny Novgorod Region, servicemen of the reconnaissance units of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District destroyed a mock enemy and seized a bridgehead deep in the rear of the mock enemy as part of a tactical exercise.

During the exercise, the scouts landed from Mi-8 helicopters from an altitude of 600 to 800 meters using D-10 parachute systems. After landing, the servicemen worked out a number of combat training tasks: gathering a group at the landing point and engaging in an all-round defense, conducting sabotage actions at the objects of a simulated enemy, as well as marching in full combat gear to the assembly area.

From the concentration area, the servicemen made a counterstrike to the rear of the mock enemy and were able to seize a bridgehead for the landing of the main forces of military equipment.

In total, over 250 servicemen and about 100 units of weapons and military equipment of the ZVO tank association are involved in the tactical exercise.
