The press service noted that according to the plan of the exercise, the calculations needed to make a march to the designated areas and conduct firing with concentrated fire at underground structures and passages of conditional illegal armed formations at a distance of about 6 thousand meters. The military successfully coped with the task.
One shell weighs about 130 kg and can be folded like a cardboard house 5-storey building, and the radius of destruction reaches one football field. Unlike other ammunition, a mine for the Tulip can strike a hinged trajectory and destroy not only ground, but also underground structures, which is very important with modern methods of conducting combat operations with illegal armed formations.- said the commander of the artillery battalion, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Musalyamov.
240-2 Tulip 4-mm self-propelled mortar is designed to destroy durable field-type facilities, command posts, artillery and rocket batteries and other military equipment inaccessible for flat fire. The firing range of the usual projectile to 10 km, active-reactive - to 20 km.
