On September 13, at the Mulino training ground in the Nizhny Novgorod region, a key episode of the West-2021 strategic exercises was played out. The actions of the troops were watched by Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to the correspondent of “MK” from the scene. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov gave explanations to the president.
During the exercise, Uran-9 reconnaissance and fire support robots were used for the first time. It was recently announced that the Russian army will purchase a large batch of such robots. In addition, prototypes of B-19 infantry fighting vehicles with the Epoch combat module were shown in action.
The actions of the mixed mobile air defense groups against unmanned aerial vehicles were also demonstrated. As you know, during the second Karabakh war last year, it was the Azerbaijani drones that inflicted the main defeat on the Armenian troops.
