MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Specialists in the radiation, chemical and biological (RCB) protection of the compound of the Southern Military District (YuVO) provided camouflage for the redeployment of battalion tactical groups of a motorized rifle formation at the Prudboy training ground from attacks by combat drones of a simulated enemy during a battalion tactical exercise in the Volgograd region.
The personnel of the aerosol unit of the compound completed the task of hiding the location of the motorized rifle units with smoke and aerosol screens.
RCB protection specialists used TDA-3 thermal smoke machines, with the help of which they installed an aerosol curtain over an area of more than one square kilometer. TDA-3 is capable of directing horizontal and raised aerosol curtains, providing reliable cover for large objects. Taking into account the weather conditions and the terrain, the servicemen achieved maximum coverage of the command post location.
More than 1.5 thousand servicemen of the Southern Military District take part in the exercise at the Prudboy training ground, about 300 units of military equipment and aviation are involved, including front-line bombers Su-24M, Mi-8AMTSh transport and assault helicopters, T-90A tanks, infantry fighting vehicles BMP-3, anti-aircraft missile systems “Tor”, self-propelled howitzers “Msta-S”, “Hosta”, as well as complexes with unmanned aerial vehicles.
This week, four bilateral battalion tactical exercises are being held in the Southern Military District at combined-arms training ranges located in the Volgograd Region, Karachay-Cherkessia, Chechnya and at a military base in the Republic of South Ossetia. About 6 thousand servicemen take part in them, about 300 pieces of weapons and equipment are involved, including tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, artillery pieces and multiple launch rocket systems. For the purpose of interspecific interaction, more than 40 aircraft and helicopters of army and operational-tactical aviation have been attracted from the association of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Southern Military District.
