Servicemen of the military contingents of Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan, during the joint exercise “Frontier-2021” in Kyrgyzstan, with the support of artillery and aviation, defeated a conditional illegal armed formation (IAF) that crossed the state border.

According to the legend of the exercise, the advanced detachments of armed militants in off-road vehicles illegally crossed the state border to seize a settlement, create a support camp and further carry out sabotage actions to destabilize the situation in the region. The Russian crew of the Orlan-10 UAV complex carried out aerial reconnaissance of the area, discovered the movement of the convoy of equipment and the place where the militants were concentrated. Their coordinates were transferred to the motorized rifle subunits, reinforced with tanks, which took up the defenses along the route of the illegal armed formations.

After being hit by fire, the “enemy” tried to regroup for further advance to the settlement. Data on his location were transferred to the Kyrgyz crews of cannon and rocket artillery, which with concentrated fire destroyed the main forces of the illegal armed group. Motorized rifle units of the three countries on armored vehicles “Tiger”, armored personnel carriers BTR-82A, infantry fighting vehicles BMP-1, reinforced by crews of T-72 tanks, advancing on the flank, completed the defeat of the main forces of the enemy.

To search for and destroy scattered enemy groups and prevent their reinforcements from penetrating the state border, assault groups were used, which, in cooperation with the advancing units, defeated the remnants of illegal armed groups.
