On March 28, the Russian Defense Ministry showed footage of the combat work of mobile groups of units of the Airborne Forces (VDV) to destroy observation posts of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU).
It is noted that, having received the task of destroying the observation post and the infantry of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the stronghold, the crews of the mobile groups of the Airborne Forces on the landing armored personnel carriers BTR-MDM “Rakushka” promptly advanced to destroy these targets.
Upon arrival in a given area, the paratroopers, using a quadrocopter, found an observation post of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and proceeded to liquidate it, firing from an AGS-17 “Flame” automatic grenade launcher.
The Ministry of Defense clarified that the fire on the enemy is carried out in short bursts with adjustment using a quadrocopter. After hitting an object, the calculation immediately turns off and changes its firing position in order to avoid return fire from the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Having changed positions, mobile groups destroy the personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from other firing positions.
After that, a sweep of the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was carried out, during which shelters of personnel, a lot of abandoned weapons, including Western-made ones, and the bodies of dead militants were found.

They did a cleanup. During it, shelters, foreign weapons, comrades abandoned by the enemy were discovered, ”said the group commander with the call sign Klim.
As emphasized in the military department, the tasks of the scouts of the mobile paratrooper groups also include reconnaissance of the enemy’s front line, approach routes, the supply of ammunition, suitable reserves and the identification of its firing points.
