MSTA-S Self-Propelled Howitzers On Exercise In The Chelyabinsk Region

 

The battery of self-propelled howitzers is preparing to release a barrage of fire. The target is roughly 9 kilometers away. Four shots, and the battery changes position. During combat, the self-propelled artillery must constantly change position, or else it risk becoming the target of the enemy’s artillery. “A lot of time is given for training, lots of munitions are provided for training, there is no shortage of the things the crews need to prepare,” stated Sergey Yurchenko, the commander of the artillery brigade.

Over 4,000 artillerymen from the central military district are participating in the training in the field, and are all currently conducting live firing exercises. It’s my fourth month in the artillery division, and this is my first time at the firing grounds, and I’m enjoying it,” stated Yakov Dil, the deputy commander of platoon control. The training day was lengthened to 10 hours, and half of the training, including live firing, is taking place at night.
