In accordance with the combat training plan, the servicemen of the Baltic Fleet marines have completed a number of combat training missions at the Khmelevka training ground in the Kaliningrad region.

During combat training sessions, servicemen fire at various types of targets from assault rifles and machine guns, sniper rifles, underbarrel and hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers, as well as from the armament of BTR-82A armored personnel carriers.

The Marines used the latest AK-12 Kalashnikov assault rifles as their main small arms. A batch of modern assault rifles came to the Black Berets as part of the fleet rearmament program. The new small arms replaced the AK-74M assault rifles that were previously in service with the Marines.

In addition, at the Khmelevka training ground, servicemen as part of units worked out actions in an offensive when disembarking from the sea, completed tasks to overcome mine-explosive obstacles and evacuate conditionally wounded from the battlefield. The culmination of the lesson was the actions to overcome the psychological obstacle course and the exercise to capture the buildings of the residential area.

In total, over 300 servicemen took part in the planned combat training event, more than 30 units of military and special equipment were involved.
