Servicemen of the artillery units of the combined-arms formation of the Central Military District (CVO) during an exercise in the Kemerovo Region destroyed armored vehicles and manpower of the advancing enemy.

According to the plan of the exercise, the crews of unmanned aerial vehicles found a moving column of armored vehicles of a mock enemy at a distance of more than ten kilometers to the places of deployment of the troops and transmitted intelligence to the command post.

The crews “Msta-S” and “Shturm-S” moved to the designated area, conducted a reconnaissance of the area, transferred the gun from a traveling position to a combat position, took up firing positions and destroyed a column of moving armored vehicles with direct and semi-direct fire shots. In the course of inflicting fire damage against the forces of the conditional enemy, all targets were destroyed.

Adjustment of fire and control of target destruction was carried out using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) “Orlan-10”.

In addition, during the exercise, the servicemen worked out the tasks of interaction in organizing and controlling the fire of artillery units.

More than 500 servicemen and about 30 units of military equipment were involved in the exercise.

The combined arms formation of the Central Military District is deployed in the Novosibirsk, Kemerovo, Omsk, Tyumen, Irkutsk regions, Altai Territory and the Republic of Tyva. It includes motorized rifle, artillery and anti-aircraft missile formations, RChBZ and communications troops.
