These tasks are achieved by:
- High combat skills.
- Conscientious performance of military duty, persistence; courage, bravery and willingness of the crew to achieve a complete victory over the enemy under any circumstances.
- Knowing your subordinates, maintaining personal contact with them, paying attention to their daily combat life and needs, rigor.
- Educating the subordinates in the spirit of the righteousness of our cause, dedication to the homeland and the people.
In the present-day challenging circumstances of combined arms battles, success depends on combat skills. It is achieved through tense military training, which is the main task of the day-to-day operation of the army in time of peace and continuing during the pauses between combat operations.
Combat training is taught through a variety of subjects, the most important of which is the Tactics.
