For the first time, the commanders of the battalion tactical groups of the military base of the Southern Military District (YuVO) used mobile anti-tank groups to fight against the columns of the imaginary enemy in the mountains of South Ossetia.

Anti-tank units, armed with the Kornet ATGM systems, using the folds of the terrain in the conditions of the Dzartsem mountain range, secretly moved into position and destroyed the armored vehicles of the conditional enemy from an ambush.

Applying new elements of battle order and methods of tactical actions, motorized riflemen of the Southern Military District perform tasks as part of mobile mining groups, electronic warfare and tactical breakthrough groups.

The forces of the anti-unmanned reserve in the exercise in mountainous conditions managed to create an area of ​​electronic blocking of radio communication channels. The new method of using the radio jamming complex for navigation equipment did not allow the enemy to use a helicopter.

For the first time, battalion commanders used mobile obstacle groups in battle formations on the proposed route of the enemy forces’ advance. A non-standard approach allowed motorized riflemen to inflict fire defeat on a convoy of enemy military equipment stopped in the mountains.

To identify the drones of the mock enemy, air defense units equipped with the Tor-M1 combat vehicle were included in the battalion tactical group. Together with the Barnaul automated control system, the air defense crew organized reconnaissance on the move. Air targets were found at a considerable distance from their positions.

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.
