For the first time, servicemen of the engineering troops of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation will carry out the practical application of remote mining by the method of “blocking mining” during a special exercise at the Mulino training ground in the Nizhny Novgorod region.

The servicemen worked out joint actions of combined arms and engineering units to draw in a simulated enemy and military equipment into a mined area, followed by blocking and destruction.

Engineering units have worked out the skills of setting up mixed minefields with a promising means of the MVZ device – the universal mine layer UMZ-K “Kleshch”. Also, when performing certain elements of the exercise, the military personnel used new samples of engineering ammunition, including the promising anti-roof mines PTKM-1R.

Special exercises of engineering troops are being held on the territory of the Western Military District in preparation for the joint strategic exercise West-2021.

More than 8 thousand servicemen and over 1.5 thousand units of military equipment are involved in the maneuvers.
