MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

Tank subdivisions of the armed forces of the Republic of Belarus, using the tactics of “roll-overs”, pulled the forward units of the simulated enemy into a fire and mine bag during the drawing of practical actions of troops (forces) of the main stage of the joint strategic exercise “West-2021” at the Mulino training ground in the Nizhny Novgorod region …

In one of the episodes, while conducting a mobile defense, tank subunits of the armed forces of the Republic of Belarus, in cooperation with motorized riflemen of the Western Military District, inflicted maximum losses on the advancing group of the “enemy”, forced it to advance in an unfavorable direction and prematurely bring the main forces into battle.

At the same time, the units used the tactics of “roll-overs” – the alternate withdrawal from one defensive line to another under the cover of smoke and aerosol curtains.

The reinforced tank company of the armed forces of the Republic of Belarus made a deliberate withdrawal within the first defensive position and pulled the advanced units of the simulated enemy into a fire and mine bag and, creating multi-layered fire in combination with engineering barriers, destroyed the wedged enemy.

In order to drag the simulated enemy into a mine bag, the coalition group of forces carried out a massive use of the GMZ-3 minelayers together with the Mi-8MT air minelayer, with a change in the mine step without changing the number of mines, increasing the length and depth of the mining line.

A fire bag is a previously prepared area of ​​the terrain for conducting a concentrated impact on it from two or three sides; it is organized within the framework of a fire system to inflict maximum damage on the enemy in the shortest possible time.

Mine bag – the use of the tactics of blocking mining of enemy subunits using various means of setting up mine-explosive obstacles and engineering systems of remote mining.

The tracked minelayer GMZ-3 is equipped with a modern system of navigation equipment (inertial and satellite), which provides continuous development of the shortest path to the designated point from the anchor point, digital indexing of vehicle coordinates, coordinates of minefield nodal points, coordinates of each mine. This allows fixing the minefield at the time of mining, drawing the contours of the minefield on a topographic map and simultaneously transferring the coordinates of the minefield to the command center. The mining speed is 6-16 km / h.

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 water area 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.
