The tank crews fired live shots with 125 mm guns from T72 tanks from positions in cover and on the move, after suppressing the enemy forces, they finished off the retreating forces and retreated to the “base” under a smoke screen. All the tanks that took part in the exercises were captured from the Russians in the first days of the full-scale war during the first battles in the north. These are new T72B3 modification tanks, there were no such tanks in Ukrainian arsenal.
