Servicemen of the reconnaissance unit of the mountain motorized rifle formation of the 41st combined arms army (OA) of the Central Military District (TsVO), during a special tactical exercise, directed an artillery strike at the positions of the mock enemy in the remote mountainous regions of Tuva.

According to the plan of the tactical-special exercise, the servicemen of the reconnaissance unit on armored vehicles “Tiger” moved to the foothills of the Western Sayan Mountains to conduct reconnaissance activities. With the help of mountaineering equipment, the scouts overcame difficult mountainous areas, stopped at the dominant heights, where they organized observation posts. With the onset of dusk, the positions of the conditional enemy were found in the lowlands of the mountains and gorges at different distances from each other. To accurately determine the coordinates, the servicemen used portable ground reconnaissance stations PSNR-5, night vision devices, thermal imagers and other technical means. The intelligence was transferred to the higher headquarters, and then to the artillery crews for a fire strike.
