The personnel of the artillery units of a separate guards airborne assault unit stationed in the city of Ulan-Ude (Republic of Buryatia) has begun to develop a new virtual artillery range “Arterra”, which has just entered the unit this month.

The Arterra computer artillery range allows for virtual lessons and training in shooting and control of all types of fire, realizing any method of firing various types of ammunition in real time.

At the virtual training ground, the degree of target destruction is taken into account and an assessment is made of the effectiveness of the assigned combat mission. The polygon allows you to simulate fire day and night on all types of terrain, in any weather, as well as to recreate any terrain using the data of electronic topographic maps.

“Arterra” is a complex of software and hardware, including automated workstations for the head of the lesson and the trainees. Using special software, it completely simulates all elements of shooting preparation and fire control.

The virtual training ground allows training in artillery specialties without going to field training grounds, thereby significantly saving the motor resource of military equipment and fuel and lubricants, and at the same time not reducing the quality of training of specialists.

The gunners of the airborne assault formation worked out the practical skills of artillery crews at command and observation posts and firing positions, as well as conducting fire correction from 122-mm D-30 howitzers, 120-mm 2S9 Nona-S self-propelled guns, 152-mm self-propelled artillery 2S19 “Msta-S” installations, 122-mm self-propelled artillery mounts 2S1 “Gvozdika” and 152-mm howitzers 2A65 “Msta-B”.
