Servicemen of the tank formation of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed on the territory of the Republic of Buryatia, performed control firing exercises from T-72B tanks with a regular projectile in preparation for the final check.

In preparation for the exercises, the servicemen were instructed and passed a test for knowledge of safety requirements when performing firing. Also, theoretical classes on special and technical training were held with the tankers.

In the practical part of the training, the crews worked out the elements of loading shells, advancing to the firing line and firing at moving targets at a distance of up to two kilometers.

The shooting was competitive. After their completion, the command of the Air Defense Forces selected the best crew and awarded the tankers with a challenge cup and honorary pennants. The best results were shown by the crew of the winners of the Tank Biathlon, Petty Officer Bato Tsydypov.

In total, about 200 military personnel were involved in the firing; more than 20 units of military equipment were involved.
