Tank and motorized rifle divisions of Russia's 102nd military base
deployed in Armenia have held tactical exercises at a local training
range, Lt. Col. Igor Gorbul, spokesman for the South Military District
commander, told Interfax-AVN on Wednesday.

"Bilateral tactical exercises involving two tank squadrons took place
at the Alagyaz training center to test the skills acquired by
servicemen during the winter training period," Gorbul said.

During the three-day exercises, the servicemen practiced battlefield
coordination, as well as their skills to operate weapons and military
hardware and to put up fortified installations, he said.
