MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the Nizhny Novgorod region, at the Mulino training ground, specialists from the radiation, chemical and biological (RCB) protection units of the Guards Tank Red Banner Army of the Western Military District performed a set of tasks to organize the protection of troops using modern equipment in the framework of bilateral tactical and special exercises.
The servicemen worked out the tasks of conducting RCB reconnaissance of the terrain, including when moving on the march, using the latest RXM-6 reconnaissance chemical vehicles, and also took soil samples and carried out dosimetric and chemical control.
When a conditionally contaminated area of the terrain was discovered, the servicemen carried out measures to decontaminate it, as well as special treatment of personnel, weapons, equipment using universal special treatment stations on the chassis of KamAZ vehicles.
Also, the RCB protection specialists complied with the standards for aerosol camouflage, countermeasures to high-precision weapon guidance systems, as well as technical reconnaissance equipment.
Aerosol countermeasures units deployed smoke screens in order to mask troop movement routes using TDA-M smoke machines capable of installing various types of curtains, in particular, horizontal and raised ones, which allow camouflaging the movement of equipment and personnel when moving over bridges.
In total, about 180 units of weapons, military and special equipment were involved in the processing of a separate RCB regiment for the protection of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District.
