At the Shikhany training ground in the Saratov region, exercises were held for combining radiation, chemical and biological defense forces. The calculations of the TOS-1A Solntsepek heavy flamethrower systems performed volley fire – each machine fired two shells at a time.
According to the design of the exercises, flamethrowers needed to destroy more than 500 militants who were seated in underground structures and planned an attack on the village. The “enemy” was destroyed by 24 thermoboric shells from a distance of more than 3 km.
The calculations that performed the task were highly appreciated by the chief of the troops of radiation, chemical and biological protection.
TOS-1A created on the chassis of the T-72. It can fire rockets in thermobaric and smoke ignition equipment at a distance of 400 m to 6 thousand m.

In the Voronezh region, a monument was opened to the martyr warrior
In Kalach, a monument to the border guard Yevgeny Rodionov was unveiled. In 1996, in the North Caucasus, he was brutally tortured by bandits. After the training part, the 18-year-old border guard managed to serve only a month. He and three comrades were captured by militants.
After three months of bullying on the day of the 19th anniversary, the young border guard was killed for refusing to remove the cross and convert to Islam. Now his name is known far beyond Kalach. In the Orthodox churches, Yevgeny Rodionov was counted among the saints, for his stamina and courage the young border guard was posthumously awarded the Order of Courage.
True, they did not immediately learn about his exploit. After all, after the disappearance of Zhenya, he was declared a deserter. But my mother, Lyubov Vasilievna, did not believe this and went to Chechnya herself in search of her son. For several months she was looking for Zhenya in the mountains.
“She talked with the leaders of the gangs, met her in different ways, happened to be beaten, scoffed, as well, but, in the end, in the fall of 1996 she was told that he was killed, that he was not alive,” the deputy chairman of the Kalacheyev regional organization said border service veterans Andrey Shcherbakov.
