Tiraspol, 19 February. /News of Transnistria/. The day before, the combat coordination of platoons was completed. The actions of the units were checked at night, the press service of the Ministry of Defense of the PMR reports.
At the previous stages of combat coordination of platoons in motorized rifle subunits, a control-tactical exercise and live firing took place during the day.
At night, the limited visibility of the target field made live shooting more difficult. Shooting from machine guns of armored personnel carriers and small arms was carried out with tracer ammunition. At various distances, the “armored vehicles” and the “infantry group” of the mock enemy were hit.
Based on the results of night firing, unit commanders and their subordinates gained experience in managing and combat firing in conditions of limited visibility.
