At the Bidzhan training ground in the Jewish Autonomous Region, crews of the modern Msta-S artillery systems of the motorized rifle unit of the Eastern Military District conducted live firing. A feature of the event was the performance of fire missions at night in cooperation with the crews of unmanned aerial vehicles “Orlan-10”.

The artillerymen reached the firing positions in advance and prepared the necessary initial data for accurate shooting. As soon as the advancing subunits of the mock enemy reached the line, an artillery fire raid was made, which made it possible to stop the advances of large forces of the mock enemy. Accurate target designation and fire adjustment was provided by a two-level target reconnaissance system. The detection of targets from the sky was carried out by the UAV “Orlan-10” using special night vision equipment. In addition, the modern Sobolyatnik complex provided assistance and intelligence control.

The artillery range was about 20 km. The targets were marked with heat traps.

The exercise took place as part of the verification of the troops following the results of the summer training period. About 300 servicemen took part in it, about 60 pieces of artillery weapons and special equipment were involved.
