At the Tarskoye training ground in North Ossetia, the first combat firing of motorized rifle units of the 58th combined-arms army of the Southern Military District (YuVO) from the armament of the BTR-82AM began in the new year.

The subdivisions perform control firing exercises with a 30-mm 2A72 and PKTM 7.62-mm cannon. Crews hit targets at a distance of up to 700 m. Shooting is carried out with short stops and in motion at speed.

“Today we performed the 1st UKS from the BTR-82AM, there were hits, the BMP target was hit, the next RPG target was hit, the BZO was hit too, but there is something to work on. This is not the first time I have been performing the UKS, I had a lot of practice, I learned something new, there were mistakes, I was corrected. Now we are doing excellently and well. In my crew, I am completely sure, the crew is fulfilling the well-coordinated standard perfectly, ”said the gunner of the BTR-82 AM, corporal Andrey Titorenko.

These trainings are conducted on a regular basis to hone the skills of military personnel and combat team coordination.
