Servicemen of the mountain motorized rifle unit of the 41st Combined Arms Army (OA) of the Central Military District (CVD), stationed in the Republic of Tyva, during a tactical exercise, worked out combat training tasks using ski equipment.

According to the plan of the exercise, the personnel of motorized rifle and reconnaissance units had to carry out reconnaissance and search activities in the mountainous area, where the depth of the snow cover was more than 2 meters. The servicemen made a 15 km long march in full combat gear and using ski equipment. In the lowlands of the mountains, the camp of a conditional enemy was discovered. The servicemen prepared the starting area for the offensive and on foot entered the battle with the “enemy” on skis. The conventional enemy was destroyed with AK assault rifles, Kord heavy machine guns and RPG-7V grenade launchers.

About 500 servicemen were involved in the exercise.

The 41st OA TsVO is deployed in the Novosibirsk, Kemerovo, Omsk, Tyumen, Irkutsk regions, Altai Territory and the Republic of Tyva. It includes motorized rifle, artillery formations, air defense troops, RChBZ and communications.
