Mortar crews “Sani” of the Russian military base in Tajikistan destroyed the main forces of the imaginary enemy with salvo firing during a tactical exercise at the Lyaur training ground.

According to the concept of practical actions, the enemy, using the terrain, took refuge in a mountain hollow, equipping firing positions for conducting artillery fire. The commanders of the motorized rifle subunits, in cooperation with the artillerymen, conducted a reconnaissance of the terrain to determine the coordinates of the guns of the imaginary enemy and promptly transmitted the data to the command post. Having received accurate target designation, the calculations of 120-mm mortars destroyed targets at a distance of up to 3 thousand meters. Artillery spotters carried out fire adjustments from an observation post located at the firing position.

In total, over 500 servicemen of the Russian formation were involved in the one-day exercise.
