In the motorized rifle formation of the Southern Military District (YuVO) in the Volgograd region, the servicemen conducted an excursion around the regiment’s territory for schoolchildren and showed military equipment.

In the fleet of combat vehicles, the guests were met by the deputy commander of the guard regiment, Lieutenant Colonel Yuri Poschenko, who told the children about the main characteristics of the T-90A tank, its combat capabilities and advantages over similar combat vehicles of foreign countries.

Also, the schoolchildren were introduced to the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle. The children sat in the place of the driver-mechanic, the commander of combat vehicles and in the troop compartment of the BMP-3. Future defenders of the Fatherland concluded that good physical shape and confident theoretical knowledge are needed to control equipment.
