An exercise to restore the interrupted railway service was held at the compound of the railway troops of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Amur Region. A feature of the exercise was the use of unmanned aircraft in the interests of railway soldiers.

During the exercise, sabotage and reconnaissance groups (DRG) of the mock enemy damaged several sections of the railway. Military experts have recently used a quadrocopter-type UAV that has arrived to determine the exact location of damage and the complexity of the upcoming work.

After discovering the damage, specialists arrived in the specified area and carried out work to restore it as soon as possible. Military railroad workers made the necessary calculations, dismantled the “damaged” elements, erected an embankment to strengthen and build the railroad bed and completed the laying of 25-meter rail-sleepers.

It is worth noting that the tasks were carried out in the absence of a constant source of electricity, the specialists of the railway troops carried out the punching of the rail with gunpowder charges.

The exercise was carried out as part of a control check of the troops following the results of the summer training period. The event was attended by about 300 military personnel, more than 40 units of special equipment were involved, including modern earth-moving complexes, track layers and a railway locomotive.
