In the Voronezh region, at the Krinitsa training ground, servicemen of the self-propelled artillery regiment of the combined arms army of the Western Military District (ZVO) worked out a tactical technique of double moving barrage fire. The crews of the Msta-SM2 self-propelled howitzers occupied two designated areas, from where they fired simultaneous volleys in the direction of the offensive and retreat of the imaginary enemy, thereby creating fire curtains.

During the exercise, the artillerymen also worked out the operational change of firing positions. Thanks to the operators of the Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), servicemen were able to promptly correct the volleys being fired. In total, about 200 servicemen of the combined arms army of the Western Military District and UAV operators took part in the exercise, over 30 pieces of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.

For reference:

Double movable barrage fire – a continuous fire curtain on the enemy’s path of advance, created simultaneously on two lines. As the enemy advances, the fire is transferred to the next designated lines.
