On Novermber, 2nd in Naro-Fominsk, a demonstration of training of the reconnaissance company of the 4th tank brigade took place. The event was timed to the Military Reconnaissance Day, which they celebrate in Russia on November, 5th.
Reconnaissance parties are very important for the army because they provide it with information. That is why soldiers should be ready for anything, such as shooting, fighting, firing mines, throwing knives, making an ambush, etc.
Russians are working on a new project - "Special mission". This time the participants are working not in the rich sets adroitly imitating some extreme environment but in absolutely real conditions of a Russian military unit. All the participants are people who are
really far from the army. In some weeks under the command of real veteran officers they have to turn into tempered, disciplined soldiers ready to attain special combat tasks. In fact it's not just a TV show, it's more likely a real army experiment.
