At the exercise, completed today at the training ground in the Chelyabinsk region, servicemen of the engineering and sapper units of the tank division of the Central Military District (TsVO) worked out engineering reconnaissance and demining column tracks along the offensive routes of the tank regiment.

According to the plan of the tactical episode, the engineering reconnaissance patrol, acting in the vanguard of the tank regiment on the march, discovered unmasking signs of mines laid along the route of the column.

To confirm the characteristics of mine-explosive obstacles, military engineers, equipped in a protective suit of a sapper “Armor”, used a finder for explosive devices “Korshun” and an IMPS mine detector. Having established the specification of minefields and mining methods, the servicemen carried out the punching of column tracks, creating passages in the minefields, using IMR-2 engineering obstacles.

In total, over 500 servicemen and about 70 units of military equipment, including transport and supply vehicles, were involved in the exercise.
