In the combined-arms formation of the Central Military District (TsVO) stationed in Siberia, fire training has begun with an exercise in throwing combat hand-held fragmentation grenades RGD-5.

Before throwing, each serviceman must pass tests on knowledge of safety requirements, as well as work out the techniques and methods of throwing with the help of training and imitation projectiles.

To get an excellent score, you need to hit at least two figures installed in a strip 10 m wide at ranges: when throwing grenades from a standing position – 30, 35 and 40 m; from the knee – 20, 25 and 30 m; lying down – 10, 15 and 20 m.

In total, more than 5,000 RGD-5 combat grenades have been prepared for the exercises. Special classes in the association will be held during the month.
