In the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District, stationed on the territory of the Amur Region, the Jewish Autonomy and the Khabarovsk Territory, a check of units and formations for the right to assign the honorary name “shock” has started. More than 3 thousand servicemen and about 500 units of military equipment were involved in the events. In total, more than 20 subunits and one full rocket force are competing for the right to be called “shock troops”.

Dozens of indicators are evaluated. In particular, these are combat training and daily activities, including the actions of a subunit upon receipt of a signal, the performance of tactical tasks in exercises, the technical condition of military equipment, the staffing of subunits, and issues of material support.

In the course of the check, the applicant units will perform live firing from the weapons of the recently received T-80BV and T-72B3 tanks, BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles, standard small arms and other weapons. The specialists will work out the tasks at the newest electronic warfare stations “Pole-21” and “Borisoglebsk-2”, special vehicles ARS-14KM and other modern equipment that entered service this year.
