The first tactical exercise with live firing of the artillery battalion formed in December in the Central Military District on self-propelled 240-millimeter Tulip mortars completed at the Totsk training ground in the Orenburg region


Artillery division of the high power of the Central Military District for the first time carried out shooting from the "Tulips"


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.

      sniffed gunpowder means ... more often you need to shoot something, otherwise, worthless to you, "Tulips" when "sneak" .. skill is all. pros, this is when reflexes work, and the brain rests. Everything should go on the machine, this can not be achieved on the simulators.

      Experienced pilots usually "dive" under the trajectory.

          Experienced - inexperienced ... such a fate. Or maybe there was no pilot there? There are hundreds of versions.

    We are reanimating them, in Ukraine they were removed from conservation. Definitely both sides got them for good reason. All were trained in the same institutions according to the same textbooks.

    ... conditional illegal armed groups ...
    Already pulled this term, as if we are talking about peacekeepers or the forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs! We will soon forget that the enemy is always opposed by the enemy - the enemy, aggressor or occupier.

    The experience of Syria has clearly shown that the power of charges is 152 mm. artillery and Grad MLRS are not enough to overcome a well-fortified enemy defense, and spending tactical and cruise missiles is too expensive. Rescued aircraft with freely falling FAB, but this is in the complete absence of anti-aircraft defense from the enemy. So PEON and TULIP were written off early. They would still have to be upgraded by adding rate of fire and range!
