Servicemen of the howitzer self-propelled artillery division of the motorized rifle regiment of the army corps of the Baltic Fleet completed training without firing artillery guns and fireworks installations.

In the coming days, after the training firing, the military personnel, guns and fireworks will be fully ready for the May 9 salute.

It is noteworthy that the festive artillery salute on May 9 is made from the ZIS-3 guns, released in 1943. The guns in service with the motorized rifle regiment took part in the assault on Konigsberg. Some of them bear traces of the fragments of a bygone war. Now these cannons, which are still in service, carry out the soundtrack of the fireworks, thanks to the characteristic, abrupt sound emitted when fired.

The festive fireworks in Kaliningrad on May 9 will be produced from three 105-mm and 125-mm fireworks and fireworks installations and three 76-mm ZIS-3 cannons in Victory Park behind the 1200 warrior-guards memorial. Traditionally, 30 artillery salvos will be fired at 22:00.
