Each of them allows to train a certain number of tasks, such as fighting in the city or adjustment of special weapons. all of them were formed taking account ATO/JFO experience. Before creating this training base, the reconnaissance men accurately gathered the experience gained by their sworn brothers, while performing real combat missions.

The fact is that, in idea of reconnaissance men, several more sections for special training are being created right now. According to experts, this base must be universal in order to be changed in accordance with the requirements of modern combat action.
