The grenade launchers of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District at the ranges in the Amur Region, the Khabarovsk Territory and the Jewish Autonomy began practical firing as part of a control check following the results of the summer training period.

A feature of the exams will be the use of non-standard targets to test the level of training of military personnel. Grenade launchers will have to hit targets imitating cars filled with explosives by suicide bombers, modern tanks and dynamic targets of various armored vehicles moving across the field.

Shooting is carried out from RPG-7 grenade launchers and automatic easel grenade launchers AGS-17 in the daytime and at night using night vision devices PGO-7V.

Particular attention is paid to the ability to quickly calculate corrections and hit targets with the first shot. Also, grenade launchers improve the skills of camouflaging firing positions, covert movement on the battlefield, reconnaissance of targets and determining their classification.

About 500 grenade launchers are taking part in the combat training event.
