Scouts of the Eastern Military District (VVO) in the course of a tactical-special exercise overcame the obstacle course “The Scout’s Path”, destroyed a mock enemy at the Divisional training ground in the Republic of Buryatia.

The Scout’s Path obstacle complex includes about 20 obstacles, which are elements of concrete, wooden, metal and stone barriers, fences, walls and destroyed buildings. Part of the elements is covered with barbed wire.

On the strip there are underground passages, platforms for practicing hand-to-hand combat techniques and throwing sapper shovels.

Explosions, shots, smoke and a mock enemy in the form of sentries, which must be silently neutralized, complicate the passage of the path for scouts.

In addition to passing the “Scout Path”, the servicemen practiced actions to repel the attack of a mock enemy during the day and at night, performed combat training firing from all types of weapons, at various targets.
