The mortarmen of the artillery formation of the Western Military District (ZVO) marched to the training ground in the Tambov region, where they began tactical exercises using the Tyulpan high-power mortars as part of the final check.

The combat crews inflicted concentrated group strikes with high-explosive fragmentation mines and shells at the moving columns of the conditional enemy, his command posts, and weapons depots. The unit’s target coordinates were obtained from the Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicles.

More than 1.2 thousand servicemen of an artillery formation take part in the exercise at the Trigulai range, about 100 pieces of weapons and military equipment are involved, including high-power artillery installations: 240-mm self-propelled mortars “Tulip” and 203-mm self-propelled guns “Malka” – which have no analogues in the world in terms of firepower.
