Artillery units of the Russian military base of the Southern Military District (YuVO) in Abkhazia destroyed the masked command posts of the conditional enemy. They used coordinates that were obtained using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The training was carried out on the artillery field of the Nagualou training ground, equipped with modern simulation equipment that allows you to create a situation as close as possible to a combat one.

The servicemen used modern complexes of unmanned aerial vehicles “Orlan”, “Zastava”, “Granat”. Unmanned aerial vehicles at altitudes up to 1500 m transmitted information about the objects of the simulated enemy to the artillery fire control point via digital communication channels. This allowed the gunners in real time to accurately determine the coordinates and characteristics of targets, as well as to promptly make adjustments when firing, depending on changes in weather conditions.

Thanks to the equipment with photo and video modules, the ability to observe in the infrared range, UAVs can be used around the clock and, remaining unnoticed, detect camouflaged enemy targets.

About 200 gunners took part in the training, more than 20 units of military equipment were involved, including the 152-mm self-propelled howitzer “Akatsia” based on the tracked armored vehicle SU-100, multiple launch rocket systems “Grad” based on the car “Ural” and 120 -mm mortars “Sani”, transported by a KamAZ vehicle.
