The battalion tactical groups of motorized rifle formations of the 49th and 58th combined-arms armies of the Southern Military District (YuVO), as well as the coastal defense units of the Black Sea Fleet, conducted a joint tactical exercise to repel an offensive operation of a simulated enemy on the sea coast. The tasks of a defensive theme in the composition of heterogeneous tactical groups were solved by motorized riflemen of three associations of the Southern Military District at the Opuk training ground in the Crimea.

An assessment of the actions of the commanders of battalion tactical groups was given by the commander of the Southern Military District, General of the Army Alexander Dvornikov.

“Commanders in this sector of defense were able to provide unconventional approaches to the use of standard weapons in order to increase mobility and create conditions for a suddenly changing tactical situation not in favor of the enemy,” General of the Army A. Dvornikov noted.

In the combat formations of motorized riflemen, nomadic guns were actively used, including mortars, anti-aircraft guns and mounted grenade launchers on automobile and armored vehicles. In addition, groups of snipers operated in the system of reconnaissance and fire complexes, including high-power fire weapons – T-72B3 tanks, BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles using anti-tank missile systems.

Taking into account the combat experience of modern armed conflicts, highly mobile motorized rifle companies on armored personnel carriers and helicopters also operated at the basis of the tactical groups of the Southern Military District. To ensure the survivability of combat units, tactical groups of combat arms were actively used, in particular, electronic warfare, air defense, chemical protection, engineering troops, unmanned aircraft crews, anti-tank, sniper and medical units.

The exercise is conducted as part of a bilateral command-staff exercise for command and control of the district troops in the South-Western strategic direction under the leadership of the commander of the Southern Military District.
