KALININGRAD, September 6. /TASS/. About 1,000 servicemen are taking part in tactical drills of the Russian Baltic Fleet’s coastal troops in the Kaliningrad Region, Russia’s westernmost exclave on the Baltic Sea, the fleet’s spokesman Roman Martov said Tuesday.
"About 1,000 servicemen, over 70 items of military and special hardware, including BMP-2 infantry combat vehicles, T-72 tanks, Akatsiya and Gvozdika self-propelled artillery howitzers, Tunguska air defense artillery systems, Grad multiple launch rocket systems, as well as fifth-generation communications equipment are used in the exercise," Martov said.
The drills will last a few days and will involve both offensive and defensive actions.
The troops will be supported by Su-24 attack aircraft and Mi-24 naval helicopter gunships.
