The mortarmen of the motorized rifle formation of the Eastern Military District suppressed the mock enemy with salvo fire at the Burduny range in the Republic of Buryatia.

According to the plan of the exercise, the enemy, using the terrain, took refuge in a hollow of mountainous terrain, equipping firing positions for conducting artillery fire. The commanders of motorized rifle subunits, in cooperation with the artillerymen, carried out night reconnaissance of the terrain to determine the coordinates of the guns of the conditional enemy and promptly transmitted the data to the command post.

Having received target designation, the crews of the 120-mm mortars “Sani” destroyed the targets imitating the positions of a conventional enemy at a distance of up to 2 thousand meters. Artillery spotters carried out fire adjustments from an observation post located at the firing position.

During the live firing, the cadets of the DVOKU were present, who learned to manage the crews, conduct reconnaissance of the terrain, adjust the fire and give the correct commands to the crews.

The exercise was attended by about 200 servicemen of motorized rifle and artillery units and about 50 units of weapons and military equipment.
