At the Shedakhino training ground, servicemen of the reconnaissance units of the mountain motorized rifle formation of the Southern Military District (SMD), stationed in Karachay-Cherkessia, began preparing for the professional skills competition “Army Intelligence Masters” of the International Army Games 2022.

During the exercises, mountain scouts in full gear will temporarily overcome a water barrier up to 100 m wide, make a 3 km march to the assembly area and hit targets with standard weapons.

In addition, the soldiers will demonstrate the skills of throwing a knife, an infantry shovel and a hand grenade for accuracy and efficiency, as well as in overcoming water obstacles and setting up ambushes.

One of the most difficult stages of preparation will be the passage of the 800-meter “Path of the Scout” with 20 obstacles and the completion of a 5-kilometer forced march over rough terrain with full combat gear.

In the training, which is attended by about 200 reconnaissance units and involved 20 units of military equipment, it is planned to use more than 500 units of imitation equipment to get as close as possible to the conditions of hostilities.
