MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The mortar men of the motorized rifle unit of the Eastern Military District destroyed the mock enemy by counter-battery firing at the Burduny range in the Republic of Buryatia.
According to the plan of the exercise, the enemy, using the folds of the terrain, took refuge in a hollow of the mountainous terrain, equipping firing positions for conducting artillery fire at the military facilities of the base. The commanders of the motorized rifle subunits, in cooperation with the artillerymen, conducted night reconnaissance of the terrain to determine the coordinates of the “enemy” targets and promptly transmitted the data to the command post.
Having received target designation, the crews of the 120-mm mortars “Sani” from the closed firing positions fired a salvo at targets simulating the positions of a simulated enemy at a distance of up to 5 kilometers. Artillery spotters from an observation post located on a hill were responsible for adjusting fire and engaging targets.
Also, during the exercise, the crews worked out the tasks of artillery support for motorized rifle subunits when clearing an area of terrain under the control of a simulated enemy.
The exercise was attended by about 200 servicemen of motorized rifle and artillery units and about 50 units of weapons and military equipment.
