In the Moscow region, at the Alabino training ground, servicemen of the Taman motorized rifle division of the Guards Tank Red Banner Army of the Western Military District (ZVO) practiced actions to destroy low-flying air targets from 12.7-mm Kord heavy machine guns.

In front of the commanders of the T-72B3 tanks, targets were raised for 15 seconds at a distance of 300 to 1500 meters, the task of the tankers was to destroy the targets imitating the aircraft of the imaginary enemy. Despite the difficulty of firing, standing in the turret of the tank, the tankers fulfilled the standard, hitting all the targets.

After working out the standard for the destruction of low-flying targets, the servicemen passed the standards for firing small arms from the tank turret and hitting the enemy with a hand grenade. In total, more than 200 servicemen and over 70 units of weapons and military equipment of the Taman Motorized Rifle Division of the Western Military District took part in the shooting.
