At the Strugi Krasnye training ground in the Pskov region, a tactical exercise was held with a separate tank battalion of the Pskov Guards Airborne Assault Formation. As part of the exercise, the crews of T-72B3 tanks carried out practical firing from standard weapons with live ammunition at emerging and moving targets at various distances, as well as from a large-caliber 12.7-mm anti-aircraft machine gun “Kord” at air targets.

According to the legend of the exercise, the tank company had the task, after a six-kilometer march, to take up defenses at the indicated line and prevent the main enemy forces from breaking through the unit’s defenses.

The shooting was carried out both at fixed targets, imitating a hand-held anti-tank grenade launcher, and at moving targets, imitating a moving tank with a speed of 15-18 km / h at a distance of 1700-1400m in a section of 300 m and a recoilless gun (ATGM) on a vehicle that moves along diagonals at a speed of 20 km / h on a section of 200 m, which must be reached from a distance of 900-700 m.

Thanks to the well-coordinated work of the crews and aimed fire, the conditional enemy was forced to turn into a pre-battle and battle formation at an unfavorable line for him and, as a result, was destroyed.
