The Armed Forces celebrates the Day of Missile Forces and Artillery

46

Today, the Russian Armed Forces celebrates the Day of Missile Forces and Artillery (RViA).


This day refers to a similar date in 1942, when the Red Army launched a counterattack near Stalingrad, stunning the enemy with volleys of literally thousands of artillery mounts and guns. The counterattack involved the impressive forces of the Don, Stalingrad, South-West, left wing of the Voronezh fronts. They were assisted by fighters of the Volga flotilla.

On November 19 on November 1942, the operation began, which is today known under the code word “Uranus”. The intention of the command was to inflict a massive strike on units and formations of the enemy at Serafimovich and Kletskaya, as well as from Sarpinsky Lakes.

The task: the defeat of the Nazi troops, covering the flanks of the main group of the Wehrmacht and its allies. In the development of the plan, which in the 1943 year led to the victory of the Red Army near Stalingrad, the legendary military commander Georgy Zhukov (at that time the army general) was directly involved.

Artillery played a crucial role in the overall success of the operation near Stalingrad. The command of the troops and the political leadership of the country decided to note this role. So, in October 1944, on the basis of the Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, a prototype of this holiday appeared. Over time, the holiday of artillerymen expanded due to the festival of rocket launchers combined with it.

To date, the RV&A include the corresponding formations in the Ground Forces of the RF Armed Forces, the artillery of the coastal component of the Navy, as well as the artillery units of the Airborne Forces.

According to the Ministry of Defense, the equipment of missile forces and artillery was carried out by more than 50%. Last year alone, the M&A received over half a thousand samples of the latest weapons and military equipment. Among other things, these are such effective weapons as the OTRK Iskander, MLRS Tornado-G, Tornado-S, self-propelled howitzers Msta of the latest modifications (Msta-SM) and not only.

Particular attention is paid to improving the combat readiness of troops in the Far North - in the strategically important Arctic region. For this purpose, equipment is created with special performance characteristics, on special platforms that allow it to be efficiently operated and used in extremely low temperatures, with icing and other related factors in a harsh region.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation published a video for today's holiday of missile and artillerymen.

Military Review congratulates all military personnel and veterans of missile forces and artillery on their professional holiday!

        In the original, the chorus begins with the words:
        Gunners Stalin gave the order ...
        Not only did they take away his name, famous all over the world, from the city of Stalingrad, they also try to extinct him from the anthem of the gunners. I am ashamed comrades.

      Happy Holidays to all! But why no one remembered which date this holiday is dedicated to? Today is the 77th anniversary of the start of Operation Uranus. 77 years ago, on this day, artillery volleys began an operation to encircle the 6th Army of the Wehrmacht at Stalingrad, which began a turning point in the bloodiest battle of that war.
      My grandfather Puzanov Korney Alekseevich, senior lieutenant, commander of the battery of 122-mm howitzer guns then began this great battle. Eternal memory to him! Eternal memory to all those who survived and fell in that meat grinder, but who won!

      Gunners Stalin gave the order!

    By a decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of October 21, 1944. [4] The date of November 19 was chosen for the following reason: November 19, 1942 with the powerful artillery preparation of the South-Western and Don Fronts of the Red Army, the Uranus operation began - the Soviet counterattack during the Battle of Stalingrad, the beginning of a radical change during the Great Patriotic War and the entire Second World War .

    Ten minutes ago he congratulated his father on his holiday.
    He was called up in the fall of 42 after the 1st year of the Institute of Railway Engineers. How a student got into artillery. Anti-tanker. First on the ZIS-2, then on the BS-3 (100 mm), he ended the war in Poland (after the capture of Koenigsberg). Then the service. Academy, military adviser in Mongolia. In 1972 he went into reserve, lieutenant colonel, commander of the howitzer division of the famous 25th division named after Chapaev. A year after his dismissal, he received a colonel ...
    Despite the fact that they are already over 90, in 2017 the veterans were brought to the exposition of the equipment standing on the square. So I got into the "Mstu". As he said later, we would have such equipment and such devices

    Once again, all a happy holiday !!! good

    The same Zhukov, already near Berlin, said the famous phrase: "With three hundred guns per kilometer of the front, the enemy is not reported!" Confirming Stalin's expression: "Artillery is the god of war!"
