The first of these drills involved armoured vehicle and tank teams  competing to complete an obsticle course under the title “the best tank and armoured combat vehicle crew”; the event involed vehicles such as the T-72, BTR-82 and the BMP-1 and included live-fire exercises and manoeuvering tactics.

The second of these drills involved anti-air units testing coordination capacities involving S-125 medium-range surfice-to-air (SAM) missiles, short-range Osa SAM systems and 23mm anti-air cannons.
