In the Kursk region, during combat duty, the crews of the Iskander-M operational-tactical missile systems (OTRK) of the combined arms army of the Western Military District (ZVO) practiced delivering counterattacks against enemy positions.

During the check of combat readiness, the missile units were subjected to a surprise attack by conditional sabotage and reconnaissance groups, as well as a conditional chemical attack near their positions. Having successfully repelled the attack, the servicemen promptly carried out the dismantling of the complexes and moved to reserve firing positions.

Having passed sections of conditionally contaminated terrain, overcoming artificial and natural obstacles, the missilemen arrived in the designated area, where they conducted engineering training and camouflaged new positions. After putting the Iskander-M OTRK into a combat position, the servicemen carried out electronic missile launches. In order to avoid a repeated attack by a conditional enemy, the missilemen repeatedly performed an anti-fire maneuver.

In total, about 150 servicemen of the missile brigade of the combined arms army of the Western Military District were involved in the check of combat readiness.
