A set of exercises using new communication systems and complexes took place at the Mulino training ground. They became a preparatory stage before the participation of Russian military personnel in the joint strategic exercise of the SSU “West-2021”.

In the course of defensive operations, the servicemen of the motorized rifle regiment used complexes of wearable and automated systems. The peculiarity of the use of new methods of command and control consisted in a coded message of signals and commands with display of actions in real time, which makes it possible to display the maneuvering and movement of subunits on an electronic map in any unfamiliar situation and terrain, both on foot and in a mechanized way.
