Special-purpose units of the Southern Military District (YuVO), stationed in the Krasnodar Territory, conducted a tactical-special exercise on the eve of the 71st anniversary of the formation of special purpose units of the Russian Armed Forces.

The servicemen worked out the tasks of checking the combat readiness of motorized rifle subunits during a command post exercise to control groupings of troops in the South-West strategic direction.

After parachuting from Mi-8AMTSh helicopters, one of the groups secretly infiltrated the rear of the defensive positions of the battalion tactical group. During the reconnaissance of the area using the “Tachyon” unmanned aerial vehicle complex, the scouts studied the defense system of motorized riflemen.

At the moment when a mobile outpost patrol approached the ambush site, sniper pairs “destroyed” the patrol personnel with synchronized shots. After that, the special forces mined the command post of the battalion tactical group.

The final command-and-staff exercise with the Southern Military District units is being held in the South of Russia and at the locations of Russian military bases in the Transcaucasus.

Under the leadership of the commander of the Southern Military District, General of the Army Alexander Dvornikov, the personnel of the military formations and formations of the district, in a single tactical plan, will work out a whole range of combat training tasks for the defense of Russian borders in the South-Western strategic direction.

According to the commander of the Southern Military District, this approach will ensure the inspection of military units and subunits in the complex.

On October 24, 1950, at the request of the Chief of the General Staff, General of the Army Sergei Shtemenko and the Chief of the GRU General Staff, General of the Army Matvey Zakharov, the Minister of War of the USSR, Marshal of the Soviet Union Alexander Vasilevsky, issued a directive on the creation of separate special-purpose companies (OR SPN) intended for reconnaissance and sabotage operations in behind enemy lines.
