A two-way tactical exercise of tank regiments of the Guards Tank formation of the Central Military District (CMD) started today at the training ground in the Chelyabinsk region and will last until the end of the week. Almost 2.5 thousand military personnel and more than 700 units of weapons and military special equipment were involved in practical actions.

In the course of practical actions, tank regiments will alternately act against each other, practicing non-standard methods of conducting combat operations.

At the final stage, the tankers of the Ural tank division will conduct high-speed march approaches-maneuvers for an accelerated transition from a marching position to a combat order for an offensive.

The exercise will end with the destruction of fortified and camouflaged objects of the conditional enemy by fire from the standard 125-mm gun of T-72B3 tanks at distances from 600 to 2.5 thousand meters.
