At the Sergeevsky, Ilyinsky and Bikinsky military ranges of the Eastern Military District (VVO) in the Primorsky and Khabarovsk Territories, servicemen of the motorized rifle units of the combined arms army conducted the first live fires from the armament of BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles in the new school year.

Motorized riflemen fired from a 30-mm 2A42 automatic cannon and a 7.62-mm Kalashnikov PKT machine gun at targets that imitated armored vehicles and manpower of a conventional enemy. The servicemen hit targets with direct shots both in the daytime and at night, at a distance of 700 to 1200 meters.

In practice, the issues of determining the range to the target, firing at emerging and moving targets, as well as masking positions are being worked out.
