In the Stavropol Territory, at the Nikolo-Aleksandrovsky training ground, as part of the active phase of a bilateral tactical exercise, servicemen of a motorized rifle formation of the Southern Military District (YuVO) worked out actions in a counteroffensive.

Motorized rifle battalion tactical groups operated in cooperation with reconnaissance, artillery and tank units. They jointly completed the tasks of finding, blocking and destroying a simulated enemy using a reconnaissance and fire complex.

The drone crews conducted reconnaissance and found a mock enemy. After receiving the command to destroy, the gunners and motorized riflemen opened fire. The battalion groups weakened the conditional enemy, destroying the most efficient and mobile targets in the first place, using the advantages of the position.

At the stage of the drawing of hostilities, the servicemen fired from weapons of T-72B3 tanks, BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles, Khosta self-propelled artillery mounts, MT-LBV multipurpose transporters, Akatsia self-propelled howitzers, Sani mortars, automatic heavy-duty grenade launchers -17, RPG-7 hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers, as well as small arms.

Experts of electronic warfare with the help of electronic warfare systems “Silok” have worked out protection against attacks from attack drones.

To create a situation close to combat, more than 100 different static and dynamic targets, modern modular firing equipment complexes equipped with computers and radio transmitting devices for the operational creation and control of the target situation were used at the test site.

Also, unmanned aerial vehicles were used to monitor the actions of military personnel.

Particular attention was paid to the conduct of hostilities in unfamiliar terrain, improving the skills of tracking and eliminating the shock drones of a simulated enemy.

In total, more than 1.5 thousand servicemen of the Southern Military District took part in the tactical exercise, about 200 units of military and special equipment were involved.

In the Southern Military District, one regimental and four bilateral battalion tactical exercises are held at combined-arms training grounds located in the Stavropol Territory, in the Rostov Region, the Chechen Republic, the Volgograd Region and the Crimea.
