Servicemen of the anti-tank units of the combined-arms formation of the Central Military District, stationed in Siberia, destroyed the armored vehicles of the mock enemy from the Shturm-S anti-tank missile systems (ATGM) during an exercise at the Yurginsky training ground in the Kemerovo region.

According to the plan of the exercise, the conditional enemy on armored vehicles made an attempt to strike from the flank during the offensive. The crews of the Shturm-S anti-tank missile systems discovered the equipment and, with the help of guided missiles, launched a preemptive strike.

ATGM crews hit more than 40 targets imitating tanks and other armored vehicles of a conventional enemy at ranges of up to 3 km.

In addition, during the exercise, the servicemen practiced skills in choosing and equipping positions for shooting.

In total, more than 200 servicemen and 10 units of military and special equipment were involved in the exercise.
