Servicemen of the artillery unit of the 58th Combined Arms Army of the Southern Military District (YuVO) in North Ossetia conducted large-scale “artillery duels” in the mountainous terrain of the Tarskoye training ground using the latest artillery equipment that had recently entered service.

The servicemen organized reconnaissance, preparation of data for firing and fire control of artillery units equipped with Pion self-propelled cannons and Tyulpan high-power mortars, as well as the latest Msta-S self-propelled artillery installations and Uragan multiple launch rocket systems.

The combat crews completed about 40 fire missions to destroy armored vehicles and manpower of the simulated enemy at a distance of up to 15 km from closed firing positions. After each volley, the artillerymen performed an anti-fire maneuver, moving forward to new firing lines.

The coordinates of the detected targets were transmitted in real time from unmanned aerial vehicles and reconnaissance, control and communications complexes to the artillery control point.

In total, more than 1.2 thousand servicemen of the Southern Military District were involved in the exercise, about 100 units of military equipment were involved.
