MOSCOW, July 31. /TASS/. Motor rifle and artillery units of Russia’s Central Military District have ended their military drills at the Totsky shooting range near Orenburg in the south Urals, the district’s press office reported on Friday.
The drills involved over 3,000 personnel and more than 400 pieces of the armor, the press office said.
"The units practiced an offensive operation with the support of artillery fire, using intervals and gaps in enemy defenses and developing the attack in depth. In defense, they drilled repelling an attack of superior forces, inflicting considerable losses on the enemy, holding their positions and conducting frontal and flank fire and carrying out enveloping and bypassing maneuvers," the district’s press office said.
The commanders of motor rifle units acted against each other during the maneuvers, competing in their command skills, the press office said.
It was earlier reported that a missile brigade of the Central Military District was alerted in a combat readiness check in the morning of July 24 and delivered to the Totsky shooting range. The brigade held firing exercises using Iskander-M tactical missile systems.
On July 27, a heavy motor rifle formation held military drills at the Totsky shooting range. About a thousand servicemen destroyed a large base of simulated militants with the support of army aviation and artillery.
