The exercise is aimed at increasing the level of military skills and combat skills, as well as improving the combat training of special operations forces units. In addition, participation in maneuvers allows you to gain experience in organizing interaction as part of an interspecific grouping of troops.

The first stage takes place in the form of a command and staff exercise, using computer technology and electronic computing systems. The second is planned to be held in the form of practical actions with live firing in the joint units.
