Servicemen of the tank units of the combined-arms formation of the Central Military District (CVD) have worked out the tactics of mobile defense during an exercise in the Kemerovo region.

During the exercise, the simulated enemy made an attempt to break through the defenses with the help of heavy armored vehicles. The crews of tank units destroyed the enemy using mobile defense tactics, a feature of which is the preparation of several positions at different lines for each combat vehicle. At the same time, after each shot, the tank changes its position. The crews of the combat vehicle, by changing the firing positions, imitate the fire of more equipment and force the enemy to respond, thereby revealing themselves for the vehicles in ambush, which open fire in a volley at the detected targets.

In total, about 500 military personnel, over 50 units of military and special equipment were involved in the exercise.

The combined arms formation of the Central Military District is deployed in the Novosibirsk, Kemerovo, Omsk, Tyumen, Irkutsk regions, Altai Territory and the Republic of Tyva. It includes motorized rifle, artillery and anti-aircraft missile formations, RChBZ and communications troops.
