Cadets of the district training center of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, performed the first firing with a regular projectile from the armament of the T-72B tank on the eve of the final exams.

During the training, the crews of the T-72B tanks complied with the standards for fire training, including firing with a regular projectile, destroying the target tank at a distance of about 1.5 kilometers.

In addition, the cadets fired from machine guns, destroying artillery installations at a distance of 700 meters and the manpower of a conditional enemy located at a distance of 400 to 600 meters.

Fulfillment of combat missions for gunners and tank commanders was complicated by poor visibility and a constant change in the target environment, which required instant reaction and accuracy from tankers when firing. During the first shooting, each crew fired 3 rounds with a regular projectile.

Particular attention was paid to the organization of communications and control of crews performing live-fire exercises.
