Specialists of the units of radiation, chemical and biological protection of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District (ZVO) completed a set of tasks to organize the protection of troops using modern equipment as part of the joint strategic Russian-Belarusian exercise “West-2021” at the Obuz-Lesnovsky combined arms range in Brest regions of the Republic of Belarus.
The servicemen worked out the tasks of conducting RCB reconnaissance of the terrain, including when moving on the march, using the latest chemical reconnaissance vehicles RHM-6, and also took soil samples and carried out dosimetric and chemical control.
When a conditionally contaminated area of the terrain was discovered, the servicemen took measures to decontaminate it, as well as special treatment of personnel, weapons, equipment using universal special treatment stations based on KamAZ vehicles.
Also, the RCB protection specialists complied with the standards for aerosol camouflage, countermeasures to high-precision weapon guidance systems, as well as technical reconnaissance equipment.
Aerosol countermeasures units deployed smoke screens in order to mask troop movement routes using TDA-M smoke machines capable of installing various types of curtains, in particular, horizontal and raised ones, which allow camouflaging the movement of equipment and personnel when moving over bridges.
