In the Nizhny Novgorod region, WMD signalmen have worked out the use of drones as repeaters
In the Nizhny Novgorod region, a special tactical exercise was held at the Mulino training ground with the communications units of the guards tank army of the Western Military District (WMD). Having risen on a training alert, the servicemen made a 50-kilometer march to the designated area. There they fulfilled the standards for the arrangement of defence and for masking a mobile communication point.
To increase the range of communication between the training ground and the control point, the servicemen launched flying repeaters based on a complex of unmanned aerial vehicles.
Also, military signalmen laid cable lines, provided stable communication between the units taking part in the exercise.
In total, more than 500 servicemen took part in this combat training event and more than 100 units of military and special equipment of the WMD tank army were involved.
