At the Sosnovy Bor training ground in the Republic of Buryatia, servicemen of the mortar units of the tank formation of the Eastern Military District (VVO) conducted live firing.

In the mountainous and wooded area, the crews hit over 50 targets imitating lightly armored vehicles, infantry concentrations and enemy structures.

The servicemen used the tactics of “nomadic” mortars, installed in the back of KamAZ vehicles, against unobserved targets located behind natural barriers – hills and forest belts.

The search for enemy targets was carried out using modern reconnaissance, control and communication systems (KRUS) “Strelets” and unmanned aircraft.

The tactics of “nomadic” mortars allows the crews of the guns to change firing positions as quickly as possible in order to avoid unmasking.

The combat firing was preceded by training, during which the personnel fulfilled about 20 standards for special training, in particular, bringing mortars to battle, determining the settings for firing, changing the firing position, and others.
