Within the framework of special exercises of the logistical support units of the Western Military District (ZVO) on the Klyazma River on the border of the Vladimir and Nizhny Novgorod regions, specialists of the pontoon-bridge battalions will deploy four bridge crossings.

One of the crossings will be a high-water wooden bridge made of plank-nail trusses with a length of 135 meters and a carrying capacity of 40 tons, which is being built for the first time since the Great Patriotic War. Its use will provide year-round transport access after the exercise.

Also, the district’s MTO specialists will create a floating bridge-tape from the set of the pontoon-bridge park (PMP), a ferry crossing and an average road folding bridge with a length of 150 meters and a carrying capacity of also 40 tons.

Based on the experience of fighting in Syria, false bridges will be erected using corner reflectors from the Sphere and Pyramid sets. For the first time, a set of measures will be worked out to restore an interrupted military movement through a water barrier using scrap materials. To mislead a conditional enemy, an underwater bridge will also be erected, imitating a destroyed bridge, but fully ensuring the passage of military equipment to the opposite bank of the river.

When equipping bridge crossings, for the first time, a universal drilling machine UBM-85M will be used, which allows to reduce the erection of supports on screw piles by more than half and a towing-motor link BMZ, capable of performing work in shallow water and at a river flow rate of more than 2 m / s.

A special exercise with military command bodies, formations, military units and logistics organizations (MTO) of the Western Military District is carried out simultaneously at 11 training grounds located on the territory of the Leningrad, Nizhny Novgorod, Voronezh, Vladimir, Pskov, Smolensk and Moscow regions.

In total, more than 1.5 thousand military personnel of the Western Military District are involved in a special MTO exercise, about 400 pieces of equipment are involved.

During the exercise, the management of material and technical support during the operational deployment of troops under the influence of illegal armed formations is practiced.
