MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

In the Nizhny Novgorod region at the Mulino training ground, servicemen of the engineering units of the Western Military District (ZVO), within the framework of a special tactical exercise, organized the passage of a column of armored vehicles through a minefield using the UR-77 Meteorite self-propelled rocket launcher.

In the course of the practical part of the event, specialists carried out engineering reconnaissance of the terrain along the route of the convoy, using modern mine detectors “Korshun”, as well as protective suits of the sapper “Sokol”.

Having discovered a minefield, the servicemen launched a rocket missile of the UR-77 mine-clearing installation, after which they detonated the cord, causing the detonation of anti-tank mines remotely set by the mock enemy, thereby ensuring the safe passage of armored vehicles of the tank formation.

When performing combat training tasks, the engineering and reconnaissance patrols also completed the tasks of repelling the attack of the sabotage and reconnaissance group of the mock enemy. More than 100 servicemen took part in the special tactical exercise, about 10 units of military and special equipment were involved.
