Field training with the crews of 12.7-mm heavy machine guns NSV “Utes” started at the 201st Russian military base in Tajikistan.

During the training sessions held at the Lyaur training ground, the servicemen study the technical characteristics and combat capabilities of the machine gun, the procedure for assembling and incomplete disassembly of weapons, the types of ammunition used for firing, as well as the rules for firing. In the mountainous military sector, machine gunners will work out the standards for preparing crews for battle and will perform practical firing at air and ground targets. The training camp will end on September 17 with the execution of control firing at targets imitating lightly armored vehicles, long-term firing points and enemy drones.

The 201st military base stationed in Tajikistan is Russia’s largest military facility outside its borders. Located in two cities – Dushanbe and Bokhtar. It includes motorized rifle, tank, artillery, reconnaissance units, air defense units, RCB protection and communications.
