Grenade launcher units of the combined-arms formation of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, were trained in firepower.

About 100 grenade launchers of the association were involved in the lesson. Fire on targets imitating the advancing infantry and military equipment of the imaginary enemy was fired from RPG-7 hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers and AGS-17 automatic heavy-duty grenade launchers.

During the lesson, the servicemen worked out the actions of covert movement, taking up firing positions and camouflaging with improvised means. Particular attention was paid to adjusting fire in gusty winds to defeat small targets at maximum ranges.

A lesson with grenade launchers took place at the Borzya Novaya military shooting range in the Trans-Baikal Territory.
