Servicemen of the anti-tank units of the combined-arms formation of the Central Military District, stationed in Siberia, destroyed a convoy of heavy armored vehicles of the mock enemy from the Shturm-S anti-tank missile systems (ATGM) at the Yurginsky training ground in the Kemerovo region.

According to the plan of the exercise, the military personnel of the Orlan-10 UAVs during the conduct of aerial reconnaissance discovered the movement of a mechanized column of armored vehicles and mock enemy personnel to the opposite flank of the defense. To disrupt the transfer of equipment and its destruction, the command decided to use the calculations of the ATGM “Shturm-S”. The servicemen moved to the designated area and secretly took up firing positions on the path of the movement of the enemy column. After the appearance of equipment in the zone of visibility, the anti-tank crews destroyed the lead and trailing vehicle of the convoy, and then methodically destroyed the rest of the stopped vehicles of the conditional enemy at ranges of up to 5 thousand meters with point fire.

To defeat full-size targets imitating tank subunits and lightly armored equipment of a simulated enemy, Shturm and Attack guided missiles were used, equipped with a high-explosive and cumulative warhead.

In total, more than 500 servicemen and 50 units of military and special equipment were involved in the exercise. In addition, during the exercise, more than 20 guided missiles were used up and more than 80 electronic launches were carried out.
