They have tanks T-80BV in service which are rather old already.

This T-80 is used for training only which is very convenient because they do not have to withdraw tanks from the battalions.

According to the brigade’s conscripts, they hold military exercises using their military equipment and ammunition, including guided missiles, on a regular basis. However, they are not really willing to talk about it because state secret safeguarding is still the object of the Federal Security Service department working at the brigade.

However, the brigade is not provided with bullet-proof vests and helmets yet.
