As part of the camp gathering of missile forces and artillery of the Western Military District (ZVO), combat crews began to practice counter-battery firing (“artillery duel”).

According to the plan of the combat training event, the crews of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) detected the positions of the imaginary enemy’s artillery batteries and transmitted their coordinates to the battalion’s command post. The servicemen will fire volleys from self-propelled artillery mounts 2S3 “Akatsiya” and 2S19 “Msta-S”. Then the subunits will perform an anti-fire maneuver and take up reserve firing positions.

Zoo counter-battery radars are also actively used as part of the training. The joint use of UAVs and radars makes it possible to determine artillery positions with an accuracy of a meter and control their destruction.

The field exit of artillery units takes place at training ranges in the North-West and Central Federal Districts, as well as in the Kaliningrad Region. About one thousand artillery pieces and multiple launch rocket systems are involved in it and about five thousand servicemen are taking part. The field camp gathering of artillery will end at the end of September.
