To reduce costs and time of training specialists in the armed forces, new forms of education, with the use of computer technology will be introduced, as well as training complexes of new generation.
According to officials, current approaches to the organization of combat training stipulate not only the introduction of new training exercises and the mastering of most advanced teaching methods, but also a fivefold increase in the use of ammunition.
In this regard, the troops already begin to use advanced training equipment with radio-controlled targets. Such innovations will automate the process to organize and conduct trainings.
Furthermore, the military will develop training methods using laser weapons simulators and electronic record keeping.
"At any rate, no cuts are in sight on the level of the state defense order. This was confirmed at meetings on the military-industrial complex, which President Putin conducted last week. We expect that combat training activities will be funded appropriately," said the expert.
