As part of the final check for the 2021 academic year, at the Sosnovy Bor training ground, units of the Ulan-Ude separate guards airborne assault formation successfully passed control exercises in firepower training.

The main objective of the control exercises was to test the practical skills of shooting from small arms (AK-74M and AK-12 assault rifles) and sniper weapons (SVD-S sniper rifles), as well as the skills of throwing hand fragmentation grenades.

In the course of the training, not only the ability to hit all targets was assessed, but also the actions with weapons, the order of command execution, as well as the ability to make adjustments when firing.

Before performing exercises in throwing hand fragmentation grenades, the servicemen were instructed on safety requirements for handling them, techniques and rules for throwing them, and also training was conducted in throwing combat and hand-held imitation training grenades for accuracy and range.

During the training event, the ability of the compound’s snipers to destroy emerging and moving targets, with a change in firing position, secretly occupy a firing position, destroy three targets from three shots at a distance of 350 to 800 meters was tested, and the standards for single shooting were also worked out.

In total, about 250 servicemen of the compound were involved in the control exercise.
