The crews of the Mi-8AMTSh transport and combat helicopters and the Mi-28N “Night Hunters” under the control of advanced aircraft controllers successfully parachuted a motorized rifle company into the rear of the mock enemy at the Prudboy combined-arms training ground in the Volgograd region.

Battalion tactical groups of mountain motorized riflemen from the brigade of the 49th combined-arms army stationed in Karachay-Cherkessia are taking part in the bilateral tactical exercise.

For the first time, under the leadership of the battalion commander of one of the sides of the exercise, a breakthrough fire group operated at the exercise, which included anti-tank missile systems, automatic grenade launchers and heavy machine guns mounted on armored vehicles. To overcome the mined area, the motorized rifle used the capabilities of the UR-83P demining installation, the so-called “Zmey-Gorynychi”.

Also in the exercise, the commanders of battalion tactical groups actively used new elements of the battle order and methods of tactical actions, including nomadic mortars on trucks, reconnaissance and fire complexes with self-propelled howitzers and artillery installations, and maneuverable mining groups.

In the Southern Military District, four bilateral battalion tactical exercises are being conducted at combined-arms training grounds located in the Volgograd Region, Karachay-Cherkessia, the Chechen Republic 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.
