MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the motorized rifle formation of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed in the Jewish Autonomous Region, an exercise was held with a reinforced motorized rifle unit, during which the issues of organizing a maneuverable defense were worked out with the drawing of a simulated enemy into a tactical “fire bag”.
According to the concept of the exercise, the forces of the conditional enemy went over to the offensive. The command of the motorized rifle subunit, based on intelligence, analyzed the situation and used a number of false diversionary maneuvers. The actions of the forward detachments lured the “enemy” advancing troops of the conditional enemy deep into their defenses through a narrow corridor of terrain to a depth of about one kilometer. After a successfully completed tactical technique, motorized riflemen, with the support of artillery, destroyed the units of the conditional enemy that had fallen into the fire bag with fire from all types of weapons.
The exercise was carried out at the Bijan training ground as part of a control check of the troops following the results of the summer training period. More than 500 servicemen were involved in it and about 200 pieces of equipment were involved, including the recently received upgraded T-80 tanks and MSTA-S artillery systems.
