The crews of the Malka artillery cannons of the compound of the Western Military District destroyed the fortified command posts at the Lyada and Mulino ranges.

During the camp, the gunners conducted a tactical exercise with live fire. According to the plan of the exercise, a division of 203-mm guns, supported by 300-mm Smerch multiple launch rocket systems, inflicted fire damage on targets at a distance of up to 50 km.

After completing the firing mission, the crews complied with the standards for changing firing positions and removing the “enemy” from under attack.

Particular attention in the course of the combat firing was paid to volley and rapid fire in the composition of batteries and divisions on two tactical fields. Coordinated shooting makes it possible to deliver artillery strikes against areal and sheltered targets at long ranges and increase the survivability of crews in modern combined arms combat.

The massive use of a heterogeneous artillery grouping of troops of the Western Military District will be used by the crews during the joint strategic exercises “West-2021” at five training ranges of the Republic of Belarus and at nine training grounds located in the Russian Federation.

In total, more than 500 servicemen, as well as about 80 pieces of weapons, military and special equipment of individual artillery formations of the Western Military District, took part in the exercise at the training grounds in the Tambov and Nizhny Novgorod regions.
