The artillerymen of the mountain motorized rifle unit of the 49th combined-arms army of the Southern Military District (YuVO) in Karachay-Cherkessia carried out live fires at the positions of the mock enemy in the mountains of the Caucasian ridge.

According to the plan of the exercise, the “enemy” units went on the offensive. The gunners, using 122-mm self-propelled howitzers “Gvozdika”, created an impassable zone of defensive fire on the path of the “enemy”, thereby stopping his attack and the approach of reserves.

In the course of field exercises, the artillerymen improved their skills and coordination of actions during marches and occupation of firing positions, worked out the standards for the deployment of military equipment, fortification equipment and camouflage of positions.

Particular attention was paid to the work of calculations on navigation equipment, an artillery ballistic station, a gyrocompass, communication facilities, the study of reconnaissance techniques in the mountains, practicing the actions of commanders when deciding to fire targets, taking into account the terrain and climatic conditions, adjusting artillery fire.

More than 300 servicemen of the Southern Military District took part in the combat training events, about 50 units of weapons and military equipment were involved.
