In the Moscow region, at the Golovenki training ground, servicemen of the motorized rifle regiment of the Kantemirovskaya tank division of the Guards Tank Red Banner Army of the Western Military District conducted live firing from T-80BV tanks as part of a special tactical exercise.

Tankers fired from 125-mm smooth-bore guns at the positions of a mock enemy in conditions of poor visibility and heavy snowfall. At a distance of 1200 to 2000 meters, targets appeared in front of the crews, imitating armored vehicles of a conditional enemy, located in caponiers, trenches and other fortifications, imitating defensive positions.

In total, more than 150 military personnel and over 60 units of weapons and military equipment of the Kantemirovskaya tank division of the Western Military District were involved in the special tactical exercise.
