In the Smolensk Region, joint special exercises were held by reconnaissance and artillery units of the combined-arms army of the Western Military District to destroy the enemy’s disguised headquarters with massive fire.

During the exercise, the scouts made a hidden march over a distance of 15 km into the rear of the mock enemy with the elimination of his patrol groups, and also passed about 10 artificial and natural obstacles, including a “barbed wire fence”, “standard fence” and “ mine-explosive obstacle “.

Finding the headquarters and collecting intelligence on the nature of the action and possible intentions of the “enemy”, the scouts with the help of the “Strelets” reconnaissance complexes transferred the information to the artillery crews of 152-mm Msta-B howitzers.

Artillerymen in combat positions deployed combat vehicles and destroyed the enemy’s hidden command posts. Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicles were used to adjust the fire and objectively monitor the destruction of targets.

In total, about 500 servicemen of the tank and reconnaissance units of the combined arms army of the Western Military District were involved in the exercises.
