Airmobile groups in formations and military units of the Western Military District (ZVO) have begun joint planned combat training with army aviation crews as part of the winter training period.

“The main principle in the training of troops in the current training period is maneuverability and range of fire damage,” said Colonel-General Alexander Zhuravlev, commander of the Western Military District.

“The personnel will have to go through the stages of interspecific interaction with helicopter commanders, unmanned aircraft crews and aircraft gunners. The culmination of the training will be the stage of live firing from RPG-7V, AGS-17 Plamya grenade launchers and 2S12 Sani mortar systems,” Alexander Zhuravlev added.

As part of the planned combat training exercises, airmobile units will master new methods of tactical operations, including the fire defeat of a mock enemy from helicopters, as well as methods of landing on various terrain.

Всего в 2022-м году в войсках (силах) Западного военного округа будет проведено свыше 200 двусторонних тактических учений различного уровня.
