Servicemen of the 49th Combined Arms Army of the Southern Military District (YuVO), who signed their first contract, have successfully passed professional aptitude courses in intensive combined arms training with elements of survival in the Volgograd Region.

They were trained in tactical, fire, reconnaissance, engineering, military medical, physical training, military topography, radiation, chemical and biological protection.

In the field, servicemen learned how to make fire without matches, clear water from rivers and collect dew, skillfully act in extreme situations, and make non-standard decisions in a sudden collision with a conventional enemy. In difficult unfamiliar terrain, the servicemen were guided by the map using modern means of navigation and the “Strelets” reconnaissance, control and communications systems.

More than 300 contract servicemen took part in practical exercises; about 100 servicemen were involved in providing the educational process.
