In the artillery units of the 150th motorized rifle division of the combined arms formation of the Southern Military District (YuVO) in the Rostov region, combat coordination of the crews of the self-propelled 122-mm howitzers 2S1 “Gvozdika” is nearing completion.

The main purpose of the training is to prepare personnel for the conduct of hostilities as part of the calculations.

The servicemen hit single and group targets imitating the manpower and fire weapons of a simulated enemy, practicing interaction skills, taking up firing positions, deploying, using fortification equipment and masking positions. Shooting was carried out with direct fire, from closed positions, at various elevation angles.

Particular attention was paid to the ability to work on navigation equipment, an artillery ballistic station, a gyrocompass, communications equipment, and the study of reconnaissance tactics.

Based on the results of the stage of combat coordination of units, calculations are determined, which will subsequently take part in the stages of the competitions of the International Army Games in 2022.

“The servicemen of my platoon strive to get to the competitions, show excellent results from the first lessons,” says platoon commander Vladimir Khovrin with pride.
