CHITA, July 20. /TASS/. Artillery units of the integrated combined arms force of Russia’s Eastern Military District stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory were alerted on Wednesday to march for drills to the Tsugol range, the district spokesman Colonel Alexander Gordeyev told reporters.
"Some 500 troops and 100 units of armaments and military equipment covered a distance of more than 100 kilometers from their permanent bases. The crews at the training ground practiced fortifying stationary and temporary positions in different types of terrain," Gordeyev said.
The troops will have firing practice with the use of rocket and cannon artillery, mortars and anti-tank guns. They will drill moving barrage and practise hitting separate hardened targets. The anti-tank and mortar units will fulfill tasks to organize "kill zones".
