In the Volgograd garrison of the Southern Military District (YuVO), a check of units of a motorized rifle formation for assigning them the honorary title of “shock” has begun.

Servicemen will show knowledge of their functional duties, the ability to apply them in practice, as well as test their physical fitness, perform exercises in driving combat vehicles, firing small arms and weapons, both from a standstill and in motion at stationary and moving targets. The delivery of final tests will be organized both during the day and at night.

In addition, each unit will be tested in the main subjects of combat training, including engineering, medical, and protection against weapons of mass destruction.

Companies and battalions of motorized rifle, tank and artillery units of the formation, which retained the right to claim the title of “shock” during the summer training period, will be involved in the checks.

In addition, as part of the audit, other units that are not currently referred to as “shock” can also receive an honorary title, subject to the delivery of all standards as part of the audit activities.

Based on the results of the inspection of the units submitted for the assignment of the name “shock”, the commission of the headquarters of the Southern Military District will determine compliance with the established criteria.

In total, more than 10 units with a total strength of about 1.5 thousand servicemen will be tested.
