In the command unit of the combined-arms formation of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Republic of Buryatia, a competition in army tactical shooting for the championship of the combined-arms formation has come to an end. It was held on the territory of the Sosnovy Bor training complex.

During the competition, the servicemen performed exercises using AK-74M assault rifles and Makarov pistols.

Various situations of the use of small arms were simulated for the participants in the competition at the shooting sites. The servicemen performed firing exercises from various positions while standing and on the move at various types of targets. The tactical situation was as close as possible to the conditions of the battle in the city. The participants passed various obstacles with the defeat of targets, while some of them were designated as hostages, in case of their defeat, penalty points were awarded.

Army Tactical Shooting takes the best elements from practical shooting, to which tactics have been added to operate in an urban environment. The trainee himself determines the most important targets that need to be hit in the first place and chooses a standard weapon to complete the task in the sequence proposed to him.

The innovation is that fire training is given in conjunction with tactical techniques. Commanders are given the opportunity to show more initiative than ever before in training personnel.

Based on the results of the competition, the panel of judges summed up the results and announced the winners of the competition, both in individual and in team competition.
