More than 100 armored training targets were destroyed by paratroopers of the Novorossiysk guards mountain formation of the Airborne Troops
As part of the preparatory stage for the manoeuvres "Kavkaz-2020", units of a separate tank battalion of the Novorossiysk Guards Airborne Assault Mountain Formation worked out actions for the use of tank units in mountainous and wooded areas and performed practical firing from the T-72B3 tank armament at appearing and moving targets at various distances, as well as from a large-caliber anti-aircraft machine gun "Kord" at air targets.
Shooting was carried out at targets imitating a moving tank, an anti-tank grenade launcher and an artillery piece at a distance of up to 2000 m.
The performance of combat tasks for tank crews became more complicated with the arrival of unexpected introductions. Targets appeared in the zone of fire destruction for a short time, hitting them required an instant reaction from the servicemen.
Also during the training, tank crews improved their skills of flanking shooting in motion, which is one of the most difficult elements in the actions of tank units.
In total, the tank crews hit more than 100 armored and air targets of the mock enemy.
