    Russia’s Troops of Radiological, Chemical, and Biological Defense (RChBD) of the Eastern Military District have practiced camouflage activities during a field exercise, the district’s press service said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Special vehicles practiced generating smoke screens, disguising the movement of the troops.

    The servicemen also practiced secretly setting up a field camp, masking it from a simulated enemy's air force with aerosol screens.

    "The servicemen have already completed camouflage activities when marching to the designated area."

    According to the press service, some 500 servicemen and more than 80 units of equipment participated in the exercise.
