Mortar units of the mountain formation of the 49th combined-arms army of the Southern Military District began to practice high-speed fire at a high-mountain range in Karachay-Cherkessia. Shooting will be carried out at targets located behind the mountain slopes.

In the conditions of mountainous and wooded terrain, the crews will have to hit up to 100 targets from the Sani mortars, imitating lightly armored vehicles, manpower and firing points of the conditional enemy.

Particular attention in the course of the lessons is paid to shooting at unobserved targets located behind natural barriers – mountains, hills, forest belts.

The combat firing was preceded by training, during which the personnel worked out about 20 standards for special training, including bringing the mortar into battle, in the stowed position, determining the settings for firing and changing the firing position.

In total, more than 200 servicemen of the mountain formation of the Southern Military District take part in the firing activities.
