Servicemen of a motorized rifle regiment of a tank division of the Central Military District (TsVO) destroyed the enemy’s highly mobile firepower during a night exercise, which ended this morning at a training ground in the Sverdlovsk Region.

According to the concept of practical actions, the convoy of military equipment on the BTR-82AM, making a night march to the starting area, was subjected to a series of attacks by a reconnaissance and search group of a simulated enemy operating on armored pickups with large-caliber machine guns. Dispersed in the terrain, the motorized riflemen began observing and spotting flashes from the shots of a conventional enemy. Having determined the numerical strength, characteristics of weapons and the approximate location of the camouflaged enemy, the military began to destroy it. Using night vision devices, the gunners-operators of the BTR-82AM detected an approaching enemy at a distance of up to 200 meters and opened aimed fire at the power plants and car cabins with automatic cannon fire.

The destruction of the enemy was completed by the crews of the T-72BZ tanks of the “Ural” tank battalion, conducting a night search and destruction of the enemy together with motorized riflemen.

In total, about 500 servicemen from motorized rifle, tank and reconnaissance units were involved in the exercise, as well as more than 100 pieces of military equipment, including the T-72B3M tanks that recently entered service with the regiment.
