As part of the control check during the winter training period, the artillery units of the Caspian Flotilla (CFL) marines carried out valid combat firing at night.

For camouflage purposes, shooting and artillery fire control at night was organized without the use of lighting devices.

When performing fire missions at night, for reconnaissance and target designation, the artillerymen used target shooting and setting light frames with the help of lighting shells and mines. Also, the Marines have worked out new methods of performing fire missions from all types of artillery weapons in order to blind and disorient the advancing forces of the conditional enemy.

Correction of artillery fire, observation of the destruction of targets was carried out using unmanned aerial vehicles “Orlan-10” and “Eleron-3”.

Also, the servicemen fulfilled the standards for occupying firing positions (OP) on the move in day and night conditions. In the course of preparing data on firing and fire control, unit commanders use modern topographic systems.

When performing fire missions, command and observation posts organized interaction between mortar and cannon artillery. Mortar batteries performed illumination of targets with illuminating mines from 2B11 mortars, and artillery batteries of 122 mm D-30 howitzers carried out fire damage to targets.

The control check of the troops of the Southern Military District is aimed at increasing the level of combat and operational training of troops and forces of the military district, improving the forms and methods of conducting exercises, exercises and training, taking into account the evolving situation within the boundaries of responsibility.
