Today, a bilateral tactical exercise with tank regiments of the guards tank formation of the Central Military District (CVD) has ended at the training ground in the Chelyabinsk Region. The exercise started at the beginning of the week. Almost 2.5 thousand servicemen were involved in practical actions, more than 700 units of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.

During the final stage with live firing, the tankers of the Ural tank division practiced a maneuverable battle with the destruction of fortified and camouflaged objects of a conventional enemy with fire from a 125-mm gun of T-72B3 tanks at distances from 600 to 2500 meters.

The exercise widely used the experience of modern armed conflicts: “tank carousel” and “Syrian rampart”, as well as joint actions of fire weapons and unmanned aircraft in a single reconnaissance and fire complex.

During the event, the commanders of tank regiments acted in turn against each other, practicing non-standard methods of warfare, misleading the enemy about the true direction of the strike and pulling his units into “fire bags” in the face of electronic suppression and the active use of unmanned aircraft.

For reference:

Guards Vitebsk-Novgorod twice Red Banner tank division of the Central Military District was formed on December 1, 2016. It includes three tank, motorized rifle and self-propelled artillery regiments, an anti-aircraft missile battalion, a reconnaissance and engineer battalion, units and subunits of combat, logistic and technical support.
