In the area of the administrative border with the temporarily occupied territory of Crimea, tactical and special exercises of artillery units of Msta-B howitzers were conducted, reported the command of the Joint Forces Operation (JFO ) of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
According to the commander of the JFO of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Serhiy Nayev, in one of the military firing ranges of the Kherson region, artillery units, in accordance with combat training measures, successfully conduct training of combat crews to deal fire damage to a conditional enemy.
“During training, platoon commanders manage artillery squads at all stages of the combat mission, namely when moving to the area of firing positions, equipping and preparing positions, targeting and the abandonment of firing positions,” noted the commander.
According to the legend of the exercises, during the reconnaissance of the terrain, an unmanned aerial vehicle detected the advance of the troops and armored vehicles of a conditional enemy towards the positions of the Ukrainian troops. The distance to the targets was about 20 km. Therefore, squads of Msta-B howitzers were directed to destroy the enemy.
“The bombardment of a conditional enemy has been corrected with the help of operators of unmanned aerial vehicles. At the moment, the gunners have also improved their skills in calculating the coordinates of targets,” Nayev stressed.
