The artillerymen of the Amur combined-arms formation of the Eastern Military District (VVO), during an exercise at the Trirechye training ground, located in the Amur Region, destroyed command posts and vital objects of the imaginary enemy.

According to the plan of the exercise, the intelligence units, with the help of the KRUS “Strelets” complexes and small-sized unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), found command posts, warehouses with fuel and technical equipment, as well as armored vehicles of a simulated enemy. The enemy, preparing for the offensive, made the most of all available means of concealment, setting himself the goal of a surprise attack on the positions of our troops.

Having received target designation for firing, the artillery crews of the Hyacinth self-propelled artillery mounts (ACS) secretly moved into the indicated areas to inflict fire damage on targets located at a distance of about 40 kilometers and equipped firing positions.

In the course of inflicting fire damage on the detected objects of the simulated enemy, the scouts monitored the destruction of targets using UAVs, transmitted target designations and made adjustments to the fire.

Artillery crews, in order to evade a retaliatory artillery strike, having performed counter-battery maneuvering and high-speed extreme driving over rough terrain, returned to the location of the compound. All the standards were worked out by the military personnel with a two-fold margin for the time allotted for the task.
