At the beginning of the week, Russian and Pakistani servicemen arrived at the Pabbi National Anti-Terrorist Center, where the active phase of the joint Russian-Pakistani exercise Friendship 2020 will take place.

At the final stage of the exercise, the military personnel of the two countries will carry out an assault on the base of a mock enemy using standard weapons, as well as imitation equipment, including explosives and smoke bombs.

The assault on the “enemy” base will be carried out with fire support from armored vehicles and aviation of the Pakistani armed forces.

According to the plan of the exercise, the combined groups of servicemen of the two countries will conduct reconnaissance of the area, after which they will begin to fire at the simulated enemy. Upon completion of the maneuver, the servicemen will carry out a parachute-free landing from Mi-17 helicopters of the Pakistan Air Force along ropes, followed by the assault on buildings.

Combat firing at infantry, vehicles and simulated enemy weapons will be carried out using Pakistani military equipment and small arms, including a 5.56-mm M4 rifle, Remington 700 sniper rifles, Glock pistols.

For the effective conduct of the exercise, Pakistani military aviation will use Cobra combat helicopters and M113 armored personnel carriers.

The event will involve more than 150 servicemen of special operations units of the ground forces of the armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and a special-purpose company of the 49th combined arms army of the Southern Military District (YuVO), stationed in the Stavropol Territory.

The exercise, aimed at strengthening and developing military cooperation between the two countries, is carried out in accordance with the plan of international military cooperation.

During the exercise, servicemen practice interaction in the performance of combat training tasks within the framework of simulated combat operations in mountainous and wooded areas and in the city, in particular, to destroy conventional illegal armed formations, as well as to conduct reconnaissance-search and reconnaissance-ambush actions.

The joint Russian-Pakistani exercise “Friendship-2020” is held from 5 to 21 November this year.
