In the Republic of Belarus, on the territory of the Obuz-Lesnovsky combined arms range, during the active phase of the joint strategic exercise of the armed forces of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus “West-2021”, a separate reconnaissance brigade of the Guards Tank Army ZVO used reconnaissance drones to calculate the positions of a conditional enemy, protection and defense military facilities.

As part of the drawing of practical actions of the main stage of the exercise, the reconnaissance units of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District used 3 reconnaissance drones of the quadrocopter type.

With the help of drones, the scouts drew up a detailed map of the terrain of the area where the conditional enemy was located. During the execution of the combat mission, the aircraft were at an altitude of more than 100 meters, which made it possible to ensure the secrecy of observation and transmission of target designations to fire weapons to destroy targets.

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.

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.
