The crews of the Iskander-M operational-tactical missile system of the combined-arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, took part in a practical training at one of the training ranges, performing tasks for the preparation, delivery and control of missile strikes.

During the lesson, the missile men made many kilometers of marches to the main and reserve positional areas, completed the tasks of deploying launchers, transport-loading and command-staff vehicles, as well as camouflaging and engineering equipment of positions, delivering and reloading missiles.

The command of the formation evaluated the ability of subunit commanders to make independent decisions on the use of forces in various conditions of the situation. They also tested the practical skills of calculating launchers to prepare for firing and carry out single and group missile strikes with electronic missile launches at targets simulating command posts and radar stations of the “enemy” at a distance of several hundred kilometers.
