The artillerymen of the Russian military base in Abkhazia destroyed targets imitating armored vehicles, command posts and concentrations of the imaginary enemy’s infantry in mountainous and wooded areas. The shooting was carried out as part of the training of the district’s missile forces and artillery.

The crews of the 122-mm D-30 howitzers learned to hit targets located at a distance of up to 15 km. Also, more than 10 fire training sessions were conducted, half of which took place in the dark.

Artillery firing was carried out on tactical fields equipped with modern imitation tools, which make it possible to create a situation as close as possible to a combat one.

In total, more than 500 military personnel took part in the field exercises and about 100 units of military equipment and guns were involved, including the 122-mm Grad multiple launch rocket systems based on the Ural vehicle and the 2S3 Akatsiya.
