The artillerymen of the Amur Combined Arms Association of the Eastern Military District (VVO) completed a large-scale exercise at the Trirechye training ground stationed in the Amur Region.

The reconnaissance detachment, secretly marching behind the lines of the imaginary enemy, at a distance of about 30 kilometers, found communication centers, depots with ammunition and fuel of the imaginary enemy.

Further, the calculation of the unmanned aerial vehicle “Orlan” relayed the radio signal transmitted by the scouts from the radio stations of the “Azart” system with the coordinates of the targets to the command post of the artillery formation. Using the ability of the UAV “Orlan” to perform video surveillance from a height of several thousand meters, while remaining unnoticed, the scouts confirmed the accuracy of the coordinates of the targets.

With several volleys from 152 mm “Hyacinth” guns, the artillerymen destroyed all the indicated targets. Thanks to visual observation of targets from an unmanned aerial vehicle, artillery fire was adjusted.

The crews of the Hyacinth guns, in order to evade a retaliatory artillery strike, performed counter-battery maneuvers. All the standards were worked out by the military personnel with a two-fold margin for the time allotted for their implementation.
