After receiving the introductory letter, engineers, using a pontoon-bridge park (PMP), set up a bridge crossing with a carrying capacity of up to 60 tons and a width of up to 20 meters across the Amur River. The total length of the bridge was about 600 meters.
Then, for the safe advance of military equipment, the servicemen of the engineering reconnaissance unit searched for and neutralized conventional mine explosive devices using proximity mine detectors.
