Tankers of the motorized rifle unit of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Republic of Buryatia, have started passing the control check for the 2021 academic year at the Burduny training ground.

As part of the check, the crews of the modernized T-72B3 tanks will perform control firing exercises with a regular projectile on the move at emerging and moving targets, as well as with a large-caliber anti-aircraft machine gun at low-flying air targets.

Driver mechanics will demonstrate their skills in driving tanks over rough terrain, overcoming natural and artificial obstacles.

During the audit, the level of combat training of servicemen, the coherence of units and their readiness to perform tasks as intended will be assessed.

Since the beginning of this year, more than 15 tactical exercises have been held, more than 19 combat firing in subunits, about 50 fire drills with practical execution of practice shooting exercises and more than 200 hours of driving.

Compared to the same period last year, the intensity of combat training activities, the average consumption of ammunition increased by about 8%.
