In the Trans-Baikal Territory, at the Tsugol interspecific training ground, a complex tactical exercise was held with servicemen of a tank unit of a motorized rifle unit of the combined-arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO) on organizing hidden firing positions and destroying a simulated enemy at night.

At the initial stage, the crews of the T-72B3 tanks carried out a thorough camouflage of combat vehicles, taking into account the geographical features of the training ground. At the same time, the military personnel used camouflage nets and other engineering equipment to ensure a more natural camouflage. With the onset of night, the servicemen were ordered to turn off the engines and go into radio silence.

When armored vehicles of the imaginary enemy were detected with the help of combined night sights, the crews opened fire on targets at a distance of 1.5 to 3 thousand meters. Having destroyed the lead and trailing vehicles of the armored vehicle column of the conditional enemy, the air defense tankers destroyed all the remaining enemy vehicles without the possibility of retreat or maneuvering. The fire was conducted from the main and additional weapons of combat vehicles, in particular 125-mm smooth-bore cannons with improved ballistics and tank machine guns.

About 200 servicemen took part in the shooting and about 30 pieces of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.
