A military exercise or war game is the employment of military resources in training for military operations, either exploring the effects of warfare or testing strategies without actual combat. This also serves the purpose of ensuring the combat readines of garrisoned or deployable forces prior to deployment from a home base.
Today, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation posted a video on one of its social media accounts showing Russian soldiers participating in a military exercise. The video was followed by a short statement that read, "Combat transport squadron ensured the landing of the tactical assault force of the 150th motorized rifle division to a strategically advantageous line during an exercise in the Rostov region."
At one point the video showed close to ten transport helicopters carrying Russian soldiers during the drills. Some of the transport helicopters helicopters that were in the video are the Mil Mi-17s. Below are the screenshots taken from the video posted by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
