Servicemen of the motorized rifle unit of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed in the Republic of Buryatia, worked out combat training tasks using skis in harsh climatic conditions.

The personnel of the motorized rifle subunit made a march across rough terrain in full combat gear and using ski equipment. During the movement, the servicemen repulsed an attack by a sabotage and reconnaissance group (DRG) of a mock enemy, and then in the indicated area carried out live fires from an AK-74M machine gun, a Pecheneg machine gun, and an RPG-7V grenade launcher.

In addition, motorized riflemen have worked out techniques and methods of skiing using military equipment. An infantry fighting vehicle (BMP) was tied to ropes, holding on to which the servicemen worked out the technique of accelerated movement in deep snow.

“For one BMP usually four people go, holding on to the cable two by two. Skiing tactics using military equipment help in combat. This allows, after an offensive dash or counterattack, not to waste time dismounting, but to immediately be ready for battle, quickly taking up a position and without delay to complete a combat mission, ”said Colonel Yuri Medvedev, commander of the motorized rifle unit.
