MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

In the Yaroslavl Region, servicemen of a separate engineer regiment of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District, as part of a tactical exercise at a military range, organized the passage of a column of armored vehicles through a minefield using the UR-77 Meteorite self-propelled rocket launcher.

As part of the exercise, the specialists carried out engineering reconnaissance of the area along the entire route of the convoy, using modern mine detectors “Korshun”, as well as protective suits of the sapper “Sokol”.

When a minefield was discovered, the servicemen launched a rocket missile of the UR-77 demining installation, after which they detonated the cord, causing remote detonation of anti-tank mines, thereby providing a safe passage for the T-72B3 tanks.

When performing combat training tasks, the engineering and reconnaissance patrols also performed tasks to repel the attack of the imaginary enemy saboteurs. In total, over 200 servicemen and about 30 units of combat and special equipment were involved in the special tactical exercise.
