In the formations and military units of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, a large-scale training was held to practice the actions of personnel in conditions of the use of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by a conditional enemy.

More than 3 thousand servicemen took part in it, about 200 units of weapons and special military equipment were involved.

During the event, the servicemen worked out practical skills in the use of modern devices for measuring the dose rate of gamma radiation and the degree of radioactive contamination of objects and terrain, which had previously entered the units to replace obsolete models of special equipment for radiation, chemical and biological (RCB) protection troops.

The dose rate meter (IMD) has an electronic “filling” and is extremely easy to use – by pressing just one button, it enters the operating mode and measures the exposure dose rate.

In turn, the specialists of the NBC protection units worked out the deployment and preparation for operation of reconnaissance chemical vehicles, carried out a full special treatment of equipment, weapons and objects in the zone of conditional contamination using disinfectant solutions.

At the same time, modern RCB reconnaissance vehicles RHM-6 based on the BTR-80 armored personnel carrier, multifunctional filling stations ARS-14KM, and other special samples were involved.

In addition, the servicemen of engineering, artillery, missile and other units fulfilled the standards for carrying out partial special processing of small arms.
