In the Smolensk region, at the Dorogobuzh training ground, on the call of motorized rifle units of the combined arms army of the Western Military District (ZVO), they performed their first training firing from the BTR-82A weapons.

The motorized riflemen completed a theoretical training course, having studied the safety requirements, the purpose and design of weapons, sights and ammunition for them, the signals and commands given in the classroom, and also mastered the skills of moving on the battlefield.

The servicemen fired at dynamic and emerging targets imitating enemy armored vehicles and grenade launchers. To eliminate targets at a distance of up to 1500 meters, motorized riflemen used both an automatic 30-mm 2A72 cannon and 7.62-mm PKTM machine guns.

In total, about 500 motorized riflemen of the combined arms army of the Western Military District took part in the firing practice. Over 1.5 thousand dynamic and emerging targets were hit.
