As part of the preparation of tank crews for passing the tests for conferring the honorary titles “Shock Company”, the tankmen of the motorized rifle and tank formations of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Republic of Buryatia, performed over 1000 test firing exercises.

The shooting was carried out at the Burduny range at targets simulating a tank, an anti-tank grenade launcher calculation and an enemy’s recoilless gun. The range to targets was about 2 thousand m, the firing distance in motion was 700 m. Targets appeared in the engagement zone for a short time, which required instant reaction and accuracy from tank crews when firing.

The control exercises were preceded by the delivery of standards for loading ammunition, transferring the tank from a traveling position to a combat position, assembling and disassembling machine guns, as well as detecting targets, classifying them and solving firing tasks.

The skills of the driver-mechanics were tested during the performance of test exercises for driving a tank in rough terrain with overcoming natural and artificial obstacles.

Before performing the shooting and driving exercises, the tank crews underwent a training course.
