The young replenishment of the tank units of the Vistula division of the combined arms army of the Western Military District (ZVO) demonstrated the skills of night driving combat vehicles in heavy snowfall and a blizzard at the Krinitsa training ground in the Voronezh region.

According to the terms of the task, the crews of T-72B3 tanks in a platoon column at increased distances had to overcome a circular route at high speed, including dangerous terrain. Thanks to their high orientation skills with the help of night vision devices, the drivers not only quickly overcame the open area, but also passed long ascents and descents, track bridges and an imitation minefield.

Also during the training, tankers learned to identify the types of enemy armored vehicles, which were imitated by about 10 types of different targets.

In total, about 150 military personnel of the young replenishment of the Vistula division of the combined arms army of the Western Military District took part in the planned lesson, about 30 units of T-72B3 tanks were involved.
