In Kuzbass, at the Yurginsky training ground, servicemen of the artillery unit of the combined-arms formation of the Central Military District (CVO) with concentrated and fluent fire from 152-mm Msta-B howitzers destroyed a convoy of armored vehicles of the mock enemy.

According to the plan of the exercise, the Eleron unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) crews revealed the movement of a column of armored vehicles of 20 units in the direction of military facilities. To destroy the enemy, the command decided to use the crews of the towed 152-mm howitzers “Msta-B”. Having received the task, the artillerymen moved to the designated area and took up closed firing positions.

After the approach of the armored vehicles of the conditional enemy, the artillerymen opened fire with semi-direct fire at a distance of up to 5 km. The target was hit with concentrated and rapid fire – thus achieving maximum efficiency. Adjustment of fire and control of target destruction was carried out using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) “Eleron”.

In addition, the artillerymen worked out the tasks of conducting anti-fire maneuvers, calculating the coordinates of targets, as well as interacting with reconnaissance units and UAVs. The exercise involved 50 units of military equipment and about 200 servicemen.
