At the specialized training ground “Sosnovy Bor”, live firing of self-propelled howitzers “Msta-S” of the artillery unit of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District took place.

The crews fired from 152-mm guns with armor-piercing shells at targets denoting ammunition depots and heavily armored equipment of the imaginary enemy.

A feature of the shooting was that all the howitzers fired with direct fire. The targets were located at a distance of 1 to 2 thousand meters. During the firing, the servicemen destroyed more than 50 units of military equipment of the mock enemy.

In addition, in the course of the practical part, the calculations of modern multifunctional complexes with UAVs “Orlan-10” via digital communication channels transmitted information about the location of the “enemy” objects to the artillery fire control point, which allowed the artillerymen to accurately determine their coordinates in real time and characteristics, as well as promptly make adjustments to hit targets.

In turn, the Konkurs anti-tank complex (ATGM) destroyed the “enemy” tanks and determined the outcome of the battle.

Within the framework of the exercise, the latest direct-fire tactics were actively used, based on the experience of modern armed conflicts.

In total, more than 100 servicemen and over 50 units of weapons, military and special equipment took part in the shooting.
