Artillery units of the Guards Red Banner Combined Arms Army of the Western Military District summed up the results of combat training over the summer training period conducted at training ranges in the Bryansk, Smolensk, Voronezh and Nizhny Novgorod regions in 2021.

Over the past summer training period, the servicemen took part in 50 tactical exercises, completed more than 500 fire missions with live firing, and conducted more than 200 drills in controlling missile strikes and artillery fire. Compared to the same period last year, the intensity of artillery combat training increased by 30%.

Subdivisions at the district training grounds used Msta-S and Msta-B self-propelled and towed artillery mounts, Grad and Uragan multiple launch rocket systems, Sani and Nona-SVK mortars, radar reconnaissance and fire control systems “Zoo”, as well as operational-tactical missile systems “Iskander”.

The main efforts in training missile forces and artillery in the summer training period were aimed at preparing the actions of subunits as part of a reconnaissance and fire complex using unmanned aerial vehicles and military reconnaissance equipment. As a result of the use of UAVs and laser rangefinders from the KRUS “Strelets” complexes, the accuracy of determining the coordinates of targets and the efficiency of solving firing tasks by artillery crews have significantly increased.

According to the results of the 2021 academic year, the best formations of the missile forces and artillery of the combined arms army of the Western Military District were the artillery brigade stationed in the city of Kolomna, Moscow region, and the S.P. Invincible missile brigade, stationed in the Kursk region.
