The active phase of the Selenga-2017 exercise began in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia


At the Zuunbayan training ground, a joint group of troops worked out the issues of combating illegal armed groups. On behalf of the Russian side, combat firing was carried out by crews of BM-21 Grad multiple launch rocket systems. Shooting took place at special targets imitating lightly armored vehicles of conditional armed illegal formations. In turn, the Mongolian military personnel covered positions from drones- scouts of a mock enemy using mobile anti-aircraft installations

        And against whom are these teachings real? Against China? Where did the illegal gangs come from? How would the Chinese take offense? Why do the Mongolia army in general? They only border with us and China, in case of war with either of these two countries, Mongolia will lose instantly.
