In the Rostov region, servicemen of artillery units of the 150th motorized rifle division of the combined arms formation of the Southern Military District (SMD) fired at distant targets from 2A65 Msta-B towed howitzers.

The calculations were faced with the task of destroying the manpower and armored vehicles of a mock enemy, detected with the help of unmanned aircraft. The coordinates of the targets were transferred to the division of towed howitzers 2A65 “Msta-B”, which destroyed the mock enemy with accurate fire.

The task was complicated not only by the distance to the target, but also by ballistic and weather features that affect the accuracy of the shot.


The towed howitzer 2A65 “Msta-B” is designed to destroy defensive structures, command posts, armored targets, manpower and firepower of the enemy. The maximum range of shots exceeds 24 km.
