Combined arms units of the WMD took part in a large-scale exercise in the Voronezh region

Divisions of the motor rifle regiment of the combined arms army of the Western Military District completed a large-scale tactical exercise at the Pogonovo training ground in the Voronezh region.

According to the plan of the exercise, the militants of a large mock illegal armed group attempted to break through to one of the settlements in order to take hostages and destabilize the situation.

Motor rifle unit organized a maneuverable defence and lured the  "enemy" into the so-called "pocket". After that, a barrage of multiple rocket systems "Tornado-G", jet flamethrowers "Shmel" destroyed highly mobile groups of mock terrorists in the "sea of fire".

Snipers of the regiment under the cover of fire from 30 mm guns of BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles hit mobile targets that mimic wheeled vehicles. They hit triplexes and car engines with aimed fire.

Firing points, lightly armored vehicles of "militants" were destroyed by grenade throwers using RPG-7V and AGS-17 "Flame". The T-72B3 tank and BMP-2 crews provided support to the soldiers in order to inflict maximum damage

In total, more than one thousand soldiers were involved in the exercise, and about 100 units of military and special equipment were used.
