At the Obuz-Lesnovsky training ground in the Republic of Belarus, the forward command posts of the regiments of the Kantemirovsk division have been equipped as part of the West-2021 joint strategic exercise.

Each of them is equipped with modern automated control facilities that allow information to be transferred from one control point to another in the shortest possible time.

The automated control system “Akatsia-M” is capable of transmitting to the command posts of the higher headquarters information about the current state of the units, the availability and consumption of ammunition, the state of equipment and personnel. In addition, video monitoring of the work of officials of the command post is carried out, which largely reduces the time for making a decision on the implementation of a combat mission.

The transmission of information is carried out by radio and satellite communication channels in a closed mode.

The joint strategic exercise (SSU) of the armed forces of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus is held every two years in accordance with the decision made by the heads of the two states.

Exercise “West-2021” is the final stage of joint training of the armed forces of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation this year.

Practical actions of troops (forces) take place from 10 to 16 September 2021 at nine training grounds located on the territory of the Russian Federation, in the waters of the Baltic Sea, as well as at five training grounds of the armed forces of the Republic of Belarus.

In total, up to 200 thousand personnel, about 80 aircraft and helicopters, up to 760 units of military equipment, including 290 tanks, 240 guns, multiple launch rocket systems, take part in the SSU “West-2021” on the territory of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus and mortars, as well as up to 15 ships.

The maximum number of personnel of military units involved in training, subject to the Vienna Document 2011, on the territory of the Russian Federation does not exceed 6400 military personnel.

The return of military command and control bodies and troops to the points of permanent deployment after participation in the exercise is planned until mid-October of this year.
