Basic training for “December 2021“ generation of soldiers

Intensive individual training for soldiers who started their voluntary service at the beginning of this month is underway in the Serbian Armed Forces training centres in Sombor, Valjevo and Leskovac.  As part of the basic training, soldiers undergo firearm and tactical training and learn how to use personal weapons and equipment, administer first aid, perform soldier’s duties and improve physical fitness on a daily basis. 

At this time, the training focuses on practicing individual tactical actions, spatial orientation, cold-weather camouflaging and movement in the field, and overcoming various obstacles on a smoky battlefield and in low visibility conditions. The next stage is infantry weapons training, followed by evaluation testing the soldiers’ level of competence for performing basic soldier’s tasks.    

The "December 2021" generation of military volunteers is expected to take the military oath at the end of the week, and officially join the ranks of soldiers ready to protect and defend the Republic of Serbia.
