MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

Servicemen of the motorized rifle and tank units of the 201st Russian military base, stationed in Tajikistan, performed exercises of control firing from small arms, grenade launchers and combat vehicles.

Crews of T-72 tanks, BTR-82A armored personnel carriers and BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles fired at targets simulating ground and air targets at a distance of up to 2 thousand meters. At the firing range, a target environment was created, providing for firing from all types of weapons of military equipment in all possible ways: on the move, from a place, with short stops, from cover and with a maneuver to a reserve position. The crews of the RPG-7V grenade launchers monitored the target stop, identifying armored vehicles that were destroyed from the first shot. The manpower of the conventional enemy was hit by motorized rifles from AK-74M assault rifles, GP-25 grenade launchers and NSV Utes heavy machine guns.

Practical exercises were held at two mountain ranges Lyaur and Sambuli at the same time during the day and at night. Over 500 servicemen and about 80 pieces of weapons and military equipment of the Russian military base took part in them.
