Motorized riflemen of the tank division of the Central Military District (TsVO) during an exercise at a training ground near Yekaterinburg stormed a settlement captured by a mock enemy.

According to the concept of practical actions, the forward detachments discovered several enemy groups, entrenched in several areas of the conditional settlement. Motorized riflemen blocked the settlement, offering to surrender to the “militants” who were surrounded, but were refused. A tank platoon was used to defeat the fire weapons and equipment of the simulated enemy. With the support of a pair of Mi-24 attack helicopters, the crews with fire from the weapons of the modernized T-72B3M tanks suppressed artillery mounts and anti-tank guns of the “militants”. Motorized riflemen completed the defeat by storming the city and destroying the enemy with the fire of the BTR-82A 30-mm automatic cannons.

More than 500 servicemen took part in the exercise, which was held as part of the final check for the 2020 academic year, about 30 pieces of equipment were involved.
