Friday, 27 October 2017 05:30

Units of EMD Combined Arms Army and Indian Coastal Defence Troops eliminated a mock terrorist group at Sergeevsky training ground in Primorsky Krai. A simulated attack targeted a secured humanitarian convoy in urban environment within the coastal part of the Indra 2017 international exercise.

According to the scenario, the 40-strong terrorist group attacked a military convoy using a car bomb during a humanitarian action. The security forces had to retreat under an intensive fire and assume the defence. The self-propelled and towed artillery systems and MLRS Grad were used to destroy terrorist reinforcements. Ground units mopped up the city to eradicate the rest terrorists. Tactical assault force airlifted by Mi-8 AMTSh helicopters supported the operation.

Today, before the live-fire exercise, Russian and Indian servicemen adjusted arms and guns of armored vehicles.
