Servicemen of the reconnaissance unit of the combined-arms formation of the Central Military District (CVD), with the support of motorized rifle units on the BMP-2, destroyed a mock enemy base during an exercise at the Yurginsky training ground in the Kemerovo region.

According to the plan of the exercise, during reconnaissance and search operations in the designated search area, the scouts found a simulated enemy field camp and transmitted the coordinates to the command post. The command made a decision on fire support of reconnaissance units by motorized rifle units on the BMP-2. Using the terrain, the scouts covertly crept up to the base of the conditional enemy as close as possible and hit his guard with sniper fire. Motorized riflemen on the BMP-2 moved into the designated area and with a fire strike from 30-mm automatic cannons 2A42 destroyed the enemy’s manpower. After that, the scouts destroyed the scattered forces of the mock enemy, inspected the field camp and seized secret documents, which were delivered to the command post.

In total, more than 200 servicemen and 20 units of military equipment were involved in the exercise, which took place as part of the 2021 check.

The combined arms formation of the Central Military District is deployed in the Novosibirsk, Kemerovo, Omsk, Tyumen, Irkutsk regions, Altai Territory and the Republic of Tyva. It includes motorized rifle, artillery and anti-aircraft missile formations, RChBZ and communications troops.
