Engineering units of the Southern Military District (YuVO) during special exercises will work out new techniques and methods of performing engineering support tasks, including those developed on the basis of Syrian combat experience.

For the operational equipment of protective fortifications of control posts, they use bulk-type gabions GNT-1, GNT-2, as well as GNT-5 and GNT-6 gabions, the installation of which is carried out in a mechanized way.

In the course of engineering support of troops in the conditions of their maneuverable defense, engineering units will use the “Syrian rampart” tactic, which ensures the creation of bulk shelters for armored vehicles during the battle.

In order to protect and camouflage combat units and command posts, military engineers will perform tasks of equipping false command posts.

Special exercises with engineering formations and military units to support the troops of the Southern Military District will be held simultaneously on the territory of ten training grounds in the Astrakhan, Volgograd and Rostov regions, in Dagestan and the Crimea, as well as at military bases in Abkhazia, Armenia and South Ossetia.

In total, more than 6.5 thousand servicemen are involved in special exercises of the engineering troops of the Southern Military District, about 1 thousand units of weapons, military and special equipment are involved in them.
