In the Moscow region, at combined-arms training grounds, combat training began with the personnel of formations and military units of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District (ZVO) with the involvement of tank, motorized rifle, reconnaissance, and engineering units.

At the training grounds, military personnel of reconnaissance units will practice overcoming the unique obstacle course “Scout’s Path”, which includes more than 15 obstacles, which are elements of concrete, wooden, metal and stone barriers, fences, walls. The passage of the strip is complicated by explosions, shots, smoke and the actions of a mock enemy.

Tank subunits from the T-80 and T-72B3 armament complex will perform live firing on the move, from a standing position and from indirect firing positions. The average range to targets is about 2 thousand meters. Targets appear in the fire zone for a short time, hitting them requires an instant reaction from the tankers. The performance of fire missions is also complicated by the arrival of sudden inputs.

Motorized rifle crews will perform combat firing exercises from the BMP-2. Personnel will hit emerging and moving targets that imitate recoilless rifles, positions of grenade launchers and enemy infantry groups.

Also, the servicemen began training on specialized simulators that completely imitate the structure of the T-80U and T-72B3 tanks, which makes it possible to familiarize the military personnel with the combat vehicle before training on real tanks at the training ground.

Under the leadership of the commanders of tank companies, the crews will carry out the tasks of overcoming off-road areas, destroying the manpower of a simulated enemy with the help of a coaxial machine gun and a 125-mm tank gun.

In total, more than 5 thousand military personnel were involved in the training, about 1.5 thousand units of weapons, military and special equipment of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District were involved.
