In the Chelyabinsk Region, during a two-sided regimental exercise, servicemen of the tank divisions of the Central Military District (TsVO) worked out the protection of a column of armored vehicles on the march.

According to the plan of the event, the command of the regiment from the tank and motorized rifle companies formed mobile groups to counter unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). They operated on BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles and MT-LB armored vehicles with crews of Igla portable anti-aircraft missile systems (MANPADS). These groups operated both in the vanguard and within the columns themselves.

Having detected the approaching UAVs on the convoy routes, the forward observers transmitted the data to the control point. Having received the command, the mobile countermeasures, using the standard armament of the BMP-2 – the 2A42 automatic cannon, as well as the NSVT heavy tank machine guns, destroyed the attacking drones of the imaginary enemy.

In total, more than 2.5 thousand servicemen were involved in the exercise of the Central Military District’s Guards Tank Division, which will end on September 17. It employs over 700 units of weapons and military equipment, including T-72 tanks of various modifications.
