The artillerymen of the formation of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Jewish Autonomous Region, conducted a tactical exercise, during which they worked out the tactics of a mobile fire rampart and inflicting a fire strike in the dark. The exercise took place at the Bidzhan training ground using 2S19 Msta-S self-propelled howitzers, BM-21 Grad multiple launch rocket systems and 2B11 mortars.

The crews of the 152-mm self-propelled howitzers “Msta-S” with several fire strikes set up a defensive fire with the transfer of the line in the direction of movement of large forces of the mock enemy at a distance of about 17 kilometers.

At the same time, the calculations of the MLRS “Grad” covered the square of the accumulation of equipment and personnel of the conditional enemy at a distance of about 20 kilometers. The forward detachment of the “enemy” by concerted actions destroyed the mortar crews. Shooting was carried out at short distances up to 5 kilometers.

Artillery reconnaissance units using an Orlan-type UAV with a night vision camera made adjustments to the movement of the “firewall” according to targets and control the destruction of other guns.

About 300 artillerymen and over 50 pieces of weapons and military equipment were involved in the complex exercises with live fire.
