Specialists of engineering units of the 49th Combined Arms Army of the Southern Military District (YuVO), as part of a tactical exercise in the Stavropol Territory at the Nikolo-Aleksandrovsky training ground, prepared a defensive bridgehead.

Servicemen in Sokol sapper suits, using Korshun mine detectors and IMP-S2 selective mine detectors, carried out engineering reconnaissance of the routes for the advancement of military equipment. Military engineers discovered and defused anti-tank and anti-personnel mines, improvised explosive devices, planted by a fictitious enemy.

While equipping positions for military equipment, engineering patrols repelled an attack by a conditional sabotage and reconnaissance group of the enemy.

In total, in the course of engineering support for the practical actions of the troops, 300 meters of non-explosive obstacles were installed, more than 200 trenches and shelters for military equipment were equipped, about 20 km of routes were prepared for the advance and maneuver of troops.
