In the Kemerovo region, at the Yurginsky training ground, artillery units of the combined-arms formation of the Central Military District (TsVO) practiced direct fire at moving targets.

According to the plan of the exercise, the reconnaissance units with the help of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) “Orlan-10” discovered a convoy of advancing armored vehicles of the imaginary enemy. The crews of self-propelled artillery mounts “Msta-S” moved to the designated area, where they took up positions and opened fire on the armored vehicles of the imaginary enemy with direct fire. As a result, all targets were destroyed.

In addition, the gunners destroyed targets at maximum ranges during mortar fire. In total, about 100 targets were hit. Correction of fire and control of destruction of targets was carried out using the UAV “Orlan-10”.

Also during the exercise, artillery crews worked out counter-battery maneuvering in order to evade a retaliatory strike.

More than 500 servicemen took part in the exercise, more than 40 units of military equipment were involved.
