Tank crews of the military base of the Southern Military District (YuVO), stationed in the Republic of South Ossetia, have begun to perform live firing at moving targets using unmanned aerial vehicles. The live-fire stage is conducted as part of a bilateral tactical exercise with battalion tactical groups of the formation.

More than 30 tank crews fired from the cannons of modern T-72B3 tanks with a regular projectile, as well as from a large-caliber anti-aircraft machine gun at emerging and moving targets imitating a moving tank, an anti-tank grenade launcher crew and a recoilless artillery gun at distances from 300 to 2 thousand meters in coordinates received from drones. Shooting is carried out both in the daytime and at night using thermal imagers.

Driver mechanics perform driving exercises on rough terrain, overcoming natural obstacles, as well as anti-tank ditches and obstacles.
