Sergei Shoigu congratulated military personnel on the Day of Rocket Forces and Artillery


November 19 in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation celebrates the Day of Rocket Forces and Artillery. For 635 years, their heroic история created by selfless labor and feats of gunners and scorers, gunners and rocket men,
said in the order of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Army General Sergei Shoigu, published on the website of the military department.

“In the Battle of Poltava, during the capture of Ishmael, in the Battle of Borodino and on the Great Patriotic War 1941 – 1945 fronts, they invariably showed courage and bravery, selfless devotion to the Motherland and loyalty to the military oath,” the minister said.

The glorious traditions of their predecessors are adequately continued by the current generation of military personnel: “successfully mastering modern weapons and military equipment, constantly improving their professional skills and combat skills, they are always ready to fulfill their military duty to defend the national interests of the country,” Shoigu added.

Dear comrades! Congratulations to all on the holiday! I wish you good health, well-being and new successes in service and work for the good of the Fatherland,
concluded the minister.

According to the Ministry of Defense, this year alone, during combat training, “more than 36 thousands of fire missions were completed from open and closed fire positions, about 240 thousand artillery ammunition was spent.” According to the ministry, at present, "the rearmament of the ground forces of the Land Forces from the Tochka-U missile system to the Iskander-M is continuing." Today, more than 80% of missile formations already have these missile systems in service.

      All members of the forum with the Day of Missile Forces and Artillery !!!
      Until 1975, it was also my holiday, but then an order came out to mark separately the air defense day on March 11th. But I still consider this day to be my holiday. Once again, all involved: Happy Holiday, friends!

            There is another song of artillerymen, once popular, now almost forgotten.
            Let this be a congratulation for the artillerymen of the older generation. Happy holiday to you!

            I remember my father’s stories - how the Tigers rolled on their calculations ... And then, 20 more than a year later, there was no fun in his voice ... But 8 tanks were on his account. Including 1 Panther.

    Sitting rocket, crying:
    A hundred tons in a rocket
    And you won’t hit her on the ball
    But only to Washington!

    Her head is on
    She shot up - and to the stars!
    Shouting to her: "Fuck with you!" -
    Friends, raise a toast.

    So that life is beautiful
    Without grief and resentment
    Glass on the red button
    It has long been poured!

    Happy Holidays! love

    Happy Holidays ARTILERISTS AND ROCKETERS !!!!!!!!!!!
    My grandfather was a participant in the war, the commander of the SU-76, and the head of a large family. And the Artilleryman’s Day was also celebrated with the family and fellow villagers of the front-line soldiers, with the obligatory performance of the anthem’s anthem (on the Tanker's Day the "three tankmen" must have bawled). People were able to fight and work and celebrate.
    Happy holiday !!!!!!!! drinks drinks drinks

    War gods are not born - they become. I am proud that I am a hereditary artilleryman. He graduated from the Kiev artillery preparatory school and the Odessa art school of high power. He served in the legendary 12th Artillery Division of the breakthrough of the reserve of the Supreme Command. I am pleasantly surprised that the forum participants so warmly and amicably celebrate the next anniversary of this legendary kind and type of troops of the RF Armed Forces. My heartfelt thanks to them and a deep bow for kind words.
