MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

In the Primorsky Territory, at the Ilyinsky training ground, servicemen of the reconnaissance unit of the combined-arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO) conducted a tactical exercise involving throwing hand-held cumulative grenades.

The scouts used RKG-3 hand-held cumulative grenades to destroy tanks and infantry fighting vehicles of the imaginary enemy. To get an “excellent” mark, the servicemen had to hit the central part of the target, located 25 meters from the line of opening fire, and hit it no later than 30 seconds after receiving the command.

Previously, the servicemen studied the material part of the grenades and their combat properties, safety requirements and rules for handling them, and also trained their skills on UPG-8 anti-tank grenades and mastered throwing techniques from various positions in tactical and physical training classes.
