5 Attacking the Imaginary Enemy

Attacking the Imaginary Enemy

Posted on April 30, 2013 by team


We are on the training ground of the Primorye Region of Russia to see how marines of the Pacific Fleet conduct battalion tactical exercises with live fire.

They had to defense “their” coast from sea landing of the imaginary enemy.

According to the training plan the enemy is attacking from the sea.

Separate air assault battalion completed the task of the secretive advance to the area.

Black berets created three lines of defense.

Such a device is used for artillery fire control.

The first offensive stroke is made by the battery of 122-mm self-propelled gun systems “Carnation”.

It’s not easy to hit such a target but the “Carnations” successfully perform the task.

The commanders are making necessary adjustments and setting goals.

Next “fire” command!

Smokescreen provides covering for the troops and they change their position.

      Not happy, but essential, any military anywhere in the world must be battle ready in at any weather. That’s why training is important, to get people used to conditions and know exactly when and where to position themselves against the enemy.

      It’s a sucky ass job, but they all have to do it.
