The crews of the Tor-M2 anti-aircraft missile systems of the Kantemirovskaya Tank Division of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District, stationed in the Moscow Region, carried out live rockets at the Kapustin Yar range.

During the exercise, anti-aircraft gunners moved into the indicated positional areas and launched missiles at various targets. The calculations worked out the tasks of capturing targets and firing in motion in conditions of strong radar jamming.

To create a target environment, more than 80 simulated air targets were used to simulate unmanned and supersonic aerial vehicles, as well as boar-type target missiles that simulate a ballistic missile. The combat crews completed the tasks of checking the operability of all air defense systems, reloading missiles in the field using special transport-loading vehicles.

The shooting is the final stage of the summer training period for anti-aircraft gunners in the Astrakhan region, in which more than 600 military personnel take part, more than 100 units of weapons, military and special equipment of the ZVO tank formation are involved.
