The crews of the artillery formation of the Eastern Military District (VVO) destroyed the superior forces of the mock enemy during an exercise at a training ground in the Amur Region. For this, the tactics of a movable firing shaft were used.

During the event, the superior forces of the mock enemy went over to the offensive. To repel the attack, the artillery subunits quickly advanced to the firing line and with several volleys from 152 mm self-propelled guns “Hyacinth” violated the control system and coordination of actions of the imaginary enemy troops. Further, adjusting the fire according to the instructions from the command post, we rolled back the defensive fire as the “enemy” forces advanced. We completed the rout of the mock enemy with massive fire from all guns. The fire was conducted from closed positions at targets imitating manpower, command posts and armored vehicles of a conditional enemy located at a distance of several tens of kilometers.

The fire was adjusted by visual observation of the target field from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) Orlan-10.

For the purpose of fraudulent actions, after each fire mission, the subunits alternately changed positions without stopping the fire impact. The repeated change of positions made it possible to prevent a retaliatory strike.

According to the results of the exercise, the artillery subunits fulfilled all the fire missions assigned to them as “good” and “excellent”.

The exercises were carried out during the field exit of the artillery of the formation, in which more than 2 thousand servicemen participate, about 500 pieces of equipment were involved.
