The ground with moving vehicles of “the enemy” and mobile targets of “terrorists” will be used to train troops to fight under city conditions, a spokesman for Russia’s Southern Military District told ITAR-TASS on Friday.
The area will have three streets, 50 “residential” buildings and 16 targets - vehicles and about 30 moving figures of “members of illegal armed groups” inside buildings.
Troops are also planned to neutralize groups of gunmen in a forest, set ambushes and observation posts under conditions of the enemy’s use of sabotage groups and establish cooperation to guard important installations and convoys.
Participants in the manoeuvres will be Russian and Indian motorized infantry units.
