MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The crews of the modernized T-80 tanks of the motorized rifle unit of the Air Defense Forces, stationed in the Jewish Autonomous Region, performed firing exercises as part of a control check during the summer training period. During the shooting, the skills of the crews in mastering the tanks received a year ago were also assessed.
Tankers fired on the move from the main cannon and a tank machine gun. In addition, the crews destroyed ground and air targets with a large-caliber anti-aircraft machine gun.
The shooting was carried out both during the day and at night. At the same time, more difficult conditions for shooting were created for the crews, the time for displaying targets was limited and the place of their appearance was regularly changed.
Control exercises were planned in such a way as to cover all the main issues of a tank subunit fighting in an offensive day and night. About 30 tank crews were involved in the events.
