As part of the training with the artillerymen of the motorized rifle unit of the Southern Military District (YuVO), stationed in the Volgograd region, a large-scale training in artillery fire control with live firing was held at the Prudboy training ground.

The crews of 152-mm self-propelled artillery howitzers “Msta-S”, “Akatsiya” and rocket artillery “Tornado-G” destroyed more than 200 camouflaged area and single targets at distances from 3 to 14 km. The fire of the installations destroyed the places of accumulation of equipment, command posts, as well as sniper fire destroyed the artillery positions of the simulated enemy in the course of counter-battery firing.

Control of destruction of objects and adjustment of fire was carried out using unmanned aerial vehicles. The training took place in the conditions of the use of electronic suppression by a conditional enemy.

Also, to implement the concept of a reconnaissance and fire complex and operational adjustment of fire, radar, optical-electronic and sound artillery reconnaissance means were used.

About 250 servicemen of the Southern Military District took part in the training, more than 40 units of military and special equipment were involved.
