About 1,000 servicemen from the Russian military base in Tajikistan went to the Lyaur and Sambuli training grounds to improve their combat training skills.

Artillerymen, military engineers, specialists in air defense, electronic warfare (EW), radiation, chemical and biological protection (RCBZ) will work out tasks for their combat purpose within a month.

Artillery subunits will perform more than 20 live fires from Grad multiple launch rocket systems, Gvozdika and Akatsia self-propelled howitzers. Servicemen will work out combat training missions as part of mortar batteries to destroy a simulated enemy in mountainous terrain along a mounted trajectory of 120-mm Sani mortars.

The S-300PS anti-aircraft missile systems division, which is on experimental combat duty in Tajikistan, together with the crews of the Verba and Igla portable anti-aircraft missile systems, will repel an air attack by a mock enemy on military base facilities.

Electronic warfare units will work out the fight against unmanned aerial vehicles and communications. Engineer-sapper units will conduct engineering reconnaissance of the routes of movement of motorized rifle and tank units, equip fortifications. RChBZ specialists will carry out tasks aimed at ensuring the protection of personnel during the use of weapons of mass destruction by a conditional enemy.

The 201st military base in Tajikistan is Russia’s largest military facility outside its borders. Located in two cities – Dushanbe and Bokhtar. It includes motorized rifle, tank, artillery, reconnaissance units, air defense units, RChBZ and communications.
