In the first working week of the new year, more than 1,500 tankers of formations and military units of the Southern Military District (SMD) conducted live firing at the directors of ten combined arms training grounds.

Tank crews fired with a regular projectile in winter conditions at firing ranges located in the Volgograd and Rostov regions, Adygea, Dagestan, Ingushetia, North Ossetia, Karachay-Cherkessia and Crimea, as well as at military bases of the Southern Military District in Armenia and South Ossetia.

Tankers performed fire missions as part of tactical groups designed to break through enemy defenses and develop the success of the offensive. In addition, the crews improved their skills in hitting targets from closed firing positions at extended ranges up to 6 km.

At the tank tracks, the drivers performed tank driving exercises as part of the qualifying round of the Tank Biathlon field training competition.

Tank subunits worked out the tactics of combat in the offensive and defense during the day and at night.

Combat coordination of tank platoons of formations and military units will continue in the troops of the Southern Military District until February 2022.
