Today is the Day of Rocket Forces and Artillery in Russia

51

Today, November 19, in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the missilemen and artillerymen celebrate their professional holiday. This is one of those professional military holidays of the country, which was established during the Great Patriotic War. The establishment took place in October 1944, when the Soviet leadership appreciated the role of artillery in the fact that the Nazis and their henchmen were expelled from the Soviet Union.


The very date of November 19, which was determined as a holiday, has a direct reference to the events of the greatest battle in stories humanity - Stalingrad. On November 19, 1942, artillery guns with their powerful volleys actually opened the Red Army's counteroffensive near Stalingrad, which ultimately brought victory in the battle and in many ways turned the tide of the war.

When missile systems began to enter service with the troops, the holiday received the name that it still retains today - the Day of Rocket Forces and Artillery. To date, the MFA includes units and formations of missile forces and artillery from the Ground Forces, as well as artillery from the Airborne Forces and coastal troops of the Russian Navy.

The missile forces and artillery are armed with complexes and installations that are effective in their lethality, including the Tornado MLRS in various modifications, the Iskander OTRK, the Msta-S self-propelled guns and other weapons. Modern rocket systems and multiple launch rocket systems are often called the heirs of the "Katyusha" - the famous barrelless field artillery installation, which, as part of batteries during the war years, inflicted significant damage on the Nazi troops and their henchmen.

Tactical missile and artillery weapons today are capable of providing the Russian troops with the necessary advantage in the desired area in the event of a real combat clash. Numerous military exercises allow servicemen to improve their skills, to choose the most optimal options for using artillery and rocket launchers of high lethality.

      "Currently, more than 4 thousand women servicemen are serving in the Strategic Missile Forces.

      About 150 of them are officers, and the rest serve under contract in the positions of privates and sergeants. In addition, several thousand women work in the most formidable branch of the military as civilian personnel.

      In just 55 years since the establishment of the Strategic Missile Forces, more than 2,5 million women have served in various positions in the formations and units of the branch of the armed forces, the press service and information department of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported.

      Burning in our hearts is love for our dear land,
      We are going into mortal battle for the honor of our native country.
      Cities burning in smoke
      The harsh god of war thunders in gray forests.

      Gunners, Stalin gave the order!
      Artillerymen, calling the Motherland of us!
      Out of many thousands of batteries
      For the tears of our mothers,
      For our Motherland - fire! Fire!

      Find out, dear mother, find out the wife-friend,
      Find out the distant house and my whole family
      What hits and burns the enemy is our steel blizzard,
      What will we carry to our native lands!

      Gunners, Stalin gave the order!
      Artillerymen, calling the Motherland of us!
      Out of many thousands of batteries
      For the tears of our mothers,
      For our Motherland - fire! Fire!

      The victory will strike the hour, the campaign will end.
      But before you go to your family’s homes,
      In honor of our Leader, in honor of our people
      We will give a salute in the victorious hour!

      Gunners, Stalin gave the order!
      Artillerymen, calling the Motherland of us!
      Out of many thousands of batteries
      For the tears of our mothers,

    Believe it or not
    And not a bird or a beast,
    Not a vagabond, not an artist
    Private artilleryman.

    He's not a hippie or a punk.
    A tank will meet with his chest,
    He is healthy, though not a weightlifter-
    Private artilleryman

    And he does not sleep at night,
    The machine gun is pressed to the shoulders
    The horizon is clear everywhere-
    At the post is an artilleryman.

    The enemy tank is crawling towards us
    He will not miss now.
    A shot rang out and "The barrel is clean!"
    The artilleryman went into battle!

    Happy holiday!
