June 6, 2019 (Google Translation) – Today, the personnel of a separate marine brigade of the Northern Fleet, together with the crew of the Kondopoga large landing ship (BDK), began practical exercises in naval amphibious training during the summer training period. In training, which take place in the lip of Pechenga (Barents Sea), soldiers of the air assault battalion on standard equipment take part.
During the day, the marines together with the crew of the ship will work out loading and unloading aboard the BDK auto and armored vehicles: BTR-82A armored personnel carriers, MTLB-V multi-purpose lightly armored tractors, and Ural.
Prior to the start of practical training, mechanics-drivers were trained at the junction grounds and made a march from the point of permanent deployment to the venue of the event.
Classes for amphibious assault training are an integral part of the combat training of driver-mechanics of ground and coastal units of the Northern Fleet. In the course of training, servicemen study and practice tactical operations as part of units, carry out loading of equipment on landing ships and boats both from the coast and afloat, as well as disembarking the amphibious assault forces on the surface and on the stop.
