On the Day of Missile Forces and Artillery, units of the 150th Motorized Rifle Division of the Southern Military District (YuVO) in the Rostov Region mastered the modernized 2S19M2 Msta-S self-propelled howitzers.

The crews of the combat vehicles were handed symbolic keys to the new technology, after which the driver-mechanics performed a test run of the howitzers at the combined-arms range.

Artillery officers used a computerized artillery range to train servicemen for live firing.

A fundamentally new computerized artillery range is a complex of special software and hardware designed for conducting exercises with artillery and missile units.

The new system makes it possible to conduct classes and training in shooting and control of all types of fire, realizing any method of shelling with a different combination of weapons in real time. At the same time, the degree of hitting the target is taken into account and an assessment is made of the effectiveness of the implementation of the assigned combat mission. The virtual polygon also allows you to simulate fire day and night in all types of terrain, to recreate any real terrain using data from electronic topographic maps.

In total, about 20 self-propelled artillery mounts were involved in the combat training activities, about 50 servicemen of the Southern Military District’s artillery units took part.

For reference:

In the modernized 152-mm self-propelled howitzers 2S19M2 “Msta-S” the aiming rate of fire has been improved, it has been increased to 10 rounds per minute, and the targeting accuracy has also been increased. Howitzers are equipped with complexes of command control vehicles with an automated gun guidance control system. In the tower of the installation there is a ballistic computer, equipment for topography and orientation by GLONASS and GPS.
