Servicemen of the artillery units of the combined arms army of the Western Military District conducted planned fire training exercises with live firing at night, as part of a control check during the winter training period at the Pogonovo training ground in the Voronezh region.

During the night exercises, the crews made an artillery raid on targets, imitating fortified command posts and armored vehicles of the “enemy” at ranges of up to 2 thousand meters with direct fire and from closed firing positions. In addition, the servicemen fulfilled the standards for topogeodetic and ballistic training at night.

A special feature of the exercises was the development of standards for the blinding of electronic-optical equipment and fire weapons of the enemy at observation posts and illumination of the terrain with special shells from artillery guns.

In total, over 200 artillerymen took part in the exercises, about 70 pieces of equipment were involved, including 120-mm mortars “Sani”, self-propelled mortars “Nona-SVK” and 152-mm towed howitzers “Msta-B”.
