During the exercises, the Special Forces Group worked tactical actions in the rear of the imaginary enemy in snow and frosty weather conditions, at day and night time. During practicing tactical actions, sniper pairs camouflaged based on the circumstances in the snowy area completed prearranged tasks.

Military personnel equipped with various mountain equipment, military equipment, and food, provided for snowy and frosty weather conditions with strong gusts of wind and snowstorms, as well as rough terrain, spent the night in shelters created in the training area.

The actions to search and determine the location of the people who fell under snow avalanches and disappeared in snowy terrain in severe cold, as well as to provide first aid and evacuation were also worked out in the Tactical-Special Exercises. During the exercises that also involved experienced rescuers who took international courses in rescue operations, search and rescue and other urgent activities were carried out using a special Biper device and probes intended for use during snow avalanches.

The Special Forces and rescue units, who have mastered perfectly the rules for the evacuation of the wounded and practical combat with the skillful use of terrain features during combat operations in the mountains, have achieved the goals.
