    A group of Russian motorized infantry troops on Sunday destroyed simulated enemy targets.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A group of Russian motorized infantry troops on Sunday destroyed simulated enemy targets during military exercises in the country’s Far Eastern Amur region, the Defense Ministry said.

    "A massive strike with Grad multiple rocket launchers was directed using coordinates that were given [to us] by intelligence and targeted armored vehicles of the simulated enemy," Eastern Military District’s spokesman Alexander Gordeev said.

    The war games included some 3,000 service members and over 400 pieces of military hardware. During the simulation, the enemy attempted to outflank Russian troops and strike from behind before it was wiped out by artillery.
