ZVO anti-aircraft gunners carried out 26 live firing at the Kapustin Yar training ground

At the Kapustin Yar test site in the Astrakhan region, the practical stage of the anti-aircraft defense (AD) control exercise was completed, in which anti-aircraft and anti-aircraft missile (ZRK) formations and military units of the Western Military District (ZVO) completed the task of destroying a conditional enemy ... 26 combat shooting was completed and spent around xnumx guided anti-aircraft missiles
- he said.

According to Muginov, during tactical exercises, the combat crews of the air defense units improved combat coordination, readiness to repel enemy air strikes in a difficult air situation, consolidated in practice their knowledge and skills in fire control and shooting at real targets.

At the moment, air defense units are preparing to march to areas of permanent deployment, Muginov added. For the transfer of equipment will be involved about 30 military echelons, which are already loading equipment. During the march, the units will work out the full support of military convoys, actions to repel the attack of saboteurs of the conditional enemy.

    This is how combat firing should be conducted. And then you understand in the Kherson region near Alexandrovka they were going to learn. There is another Askania Nova reserve nearby.

      This is generally normal, but closer to a little, because in a real war missiles will be used many times more, and here it is just the coordination of calculations that is worked out!

      26 firing is normal
      10 rockets in shooting is not enough, it does not attract a massive strike, and this also needs to be trained.

      Comrades Pvoshniki, is that a lot? And it seems to me VERY.

      I served there as an officer after a military school. The pace of shooting, thank God, is slowly being compared with what happened at the end of the 80s of the last century. On some days, 15 were also shot. In the rest - 4-6. But it is every day, 5-6 days a week. Nearby, the strategists were "playing along", but mostly in the evening, when it was getting dark.
      This is the normal operation of the landfill. Why shoot:
      1) The regiments that come for new equipment produce control firing at targets. And this is not one rocket or two. The retraining of the unit and the readiness of the equipment are checked.
      2) The control selective firing of missiles from batches that came from storage and overhaul bases, as well as experimental and serial batches. Those. what the military acceptance chose. earlier it was 3 rockets from the party. If something did not fly as expected, then again 3 missiles.
      3) Actually exercises in a certain scenario. Exercises can be repeated several times.
      4) Testing of new technology. In particular, when I began to experience the "Shell", there from the very beginning everything went awry. It was in the early 90s and then our entire service at the training ground went awry. There were almost no starts, only the Chinese took 300-ku. Yes, the “Shell” was tortured by the Tula, you can’t even imagine how much work and patience they had to invest in order to bring the structure to “Shell C” and defend themselves in the Moscow Defense Ministry. 400ku also tested there.
      And yes - in the sky of the Kapustin Yar test site there were 2 nuclear explosions before me. But it was a long time ago when they checked the possibility of destroying a group of enemy bombers with one missile.
      This is the normal and rhythmic work of the landfill. Since they shoot a lot at a test site, it means that the army has order in combat. Crews are fired and played, there is ammunition, new equipment is being developed. And now “Zircon” flies due to the fact that once in Kap Yar they worked on the project “Cold”.

        Thank. Let's see how many people will shoot in Kherson.

          But it doesn’t matter. Firstly, Ukraine does not make new complexes, and therefore they cannot have these firing in principle.
          Secondly, Ukraine does not repair missiles that have expired. There are simply no enterprises for the repair and production of new missiles. The only thing I don’t yet know about the missiles of the 125th complex. Therefore, there is nothing to check.
          All that the APU can now is to check how suitable are those missiles that are still listed as military and combine this with control firing. And here the plug is in desires - the ammunition is melting every year due to the service life, and it is possible to extend it with documents only after receiving a control shot. Therefore, they will shoot the control batch and finish this. The tasks of our teachings and Ukrainian are different. There is no point in comparing. I think that I came across tests to confirm the characteristics of one S-500 more than will exceed the launches of Ukraine for the entire time of its stupid independence.

      This is normal, there was a period of code for the unit and the air defense units did not shoot for several years.
      it’s good that he passed, and it became a lot)))

    26 live firing was carried out and about 200 guided anti-aircraft missiles were used up

    And the benefits for training, and the disposal of an arsenal with a deadline.

      Sanya! From your video: “Electronics takes up less space and reduces time for destroying targets”, watch from 0.45. How to understand it? Do they switch to wooden accounts? Interestingly, the same in the credits.

          Sanya, after writing the post, I understood the meaning. But powerful and great! The same phrase or word may contain opposite meanings. Really it was impossible to say: "Electronics is becoming more compact and powerful."

    Tests of GLL "Kholod" were carried out at the Sary-Shagan test site in Kazakhstan. Because of the problems with the financing of the project in 90-ies, that is, during the period when there were tests and refinements of the "Cold", in exchange for scientific data had to attract foreign scientific organizations, Kazakh and French. As a result of seven test launches, all the necessary information was collected to continue practical work on the hydrogen scramjet, mathematical models of ramjet engines at hypersonic speeds, etc. were corrected. At the moment, the program "Cold" is closed, but its results are not lost and are used in new projects.
