The artillerymen of the Amur combined-arms formation of the Eastern Military District (VVO), struck at the forces of the mock enemy from the MLRS BM-21 “Grad”. In the course of a fire strike of rocket artillery, accumulations of manpower of a simulated enemy were destroyed.

In the course of inflicting a fire strike, with the help of modern electronic warfare (EW) “Borisoglebsk-2”, the control network of the imaginary enemy units was opened and blocked.

After firing, the crews carried out an anti-fire maneuver, changing positions. Then the calculations of the MLRS “Grad” inflicted fire damage on the following targets at a distance of about 10 kilometers, imitating the positions of enemy artillery, which revealed its positions when performing return fire.

The latest modernization of the Grad MLRS made it possible to quickly change positions. The artillery unit is installed on a modified chassis of the Ural 4320 all-terrain vehicle with a 6×6 wheel arrangement, which significantly increased its maneuverability.

The shooting was carried out within the framework of the field exit of the artillery units of the Amur Association of the Eastern Military District. About 2 thousand servicemen and more than 400 artillery systems and other military equipment take part in it.
