Within the framework of the command-staff exercise for command and control of the troops of the Southern Military District (YuVO), which were carried out against the background of a complex of special exercises, new methods were developed for the first time to increase combat effectiveness.

The Commander of the Southern Military District, General of the Army Alexander Dvornikov, reported in detail about the innovations.

“The electronic warfare equipment installed on the helicopters of the army aviation has confirmed the reliability of suppression of control channels for unmanned aerial vehicles,” the commander said.

Speaking about the reduction of temporary standards, General of the Army A. Dvornikov gave an example of using a modern set of heavy mechanized bridge TMM-3M.

“The equipment of the exit from the floating bridge to the shore using the TMM-3M set made it possible to reduce the crossing time by 32 times,” stressed the commander of the Southern Military District.

At the moment, more than 40 detachments to ensure mobility have been trained in the district as a new element of the battle formation. Also, to reduce the visibility of troops in combat conditions, aerosol teams were formed as part of battalion tactical groups.

According to the plan of battalion tactical exercises, the skills of motorized rifle units operating on helicopters continue to improve.

“During the BTU, the landing of highly mobile units on an unprepared site in the highlands of the Republic of Abkhazia was practiced,” General of the Army A. Dvornikov said.

Also, the commander of the Southern Military District noted the modern approach to the training of flight personnel.

“During the summer period of the school year, we paid special attention to improving the skills of flight personnel in overcoming the air defense system, destroying ground and sea targets, improving the actions of army aviation crews in the interests of combined arms units,” General of the Army A. Dvornikov explained.

Together with the flight personnel, the skills of the crews of surface ships and submarines were improved in combat training events. As part of the naval groupings, the sailors of the Black Sea Fleet and the Caspian Flotilla tested new methods of repelling missile attacks and combating unmanned aerial vehicles, and also mastered modern multifunctional automated information processing systems for the effective use of strike weapons.

The stage of bilateral battalion tactical and special exercises in the troops of the Southern Military District will be completed by September 15 of this year. It involves the forces of army, military transport, assault and operational-tactical aviation, ships of the Black Sea Fleet and the Caspian Flotilla.

The exercises are held at 20 combined-arms training grounds located in the Astrakhan and Rostov regions, in the Stavropol and Kuban regions, in Adygea, Dagestan, North Ossetia, Chechnya, Crimea and at Russian military bases in Armenia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
