Servicemen of the artillery units of the combined-arms army of the Western Military District, together with the crews of Mi-8 helicopters, destroyed the equipment of the mock enemy during joint exercises at the Pogonovo training ground in the Voronezh Region.

According to the plan of the exercise, the operators of the Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicles detected the advancing troops of the mock enemy and transmitted the information to the calculations of the 120-mm self-propelled guns Nona-SVK. The commanders of the artillery guns, based on the data obtained, worked out the installation of smoke screens for the advancement of motorized rifle units, and also, due to the factor of surprise, limited the view and designated the location of the “enemy” for the helicopter pilots of the Leningrad Army Air Force and Air Defense Forces and the calculations of 152-mm towed howitzers “Msta-B “.

Thanks to the placed smoke screens, a link of Mi-8 helicopters ensured aerial reconnaissance, and also, together with an artillery battalion, prevented the advance of the imaginary enemy’s troops.

In total, over 500 servicemen of the combined arms army of the Western Military District and the Leningrad Army of the Air Force and Air Defense took part in the large-scale exercises, about 100 units of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.
