Field output of artillery of the Baltic coastal forces fleet started at the Pavenkovo training ground in the Kaliningrad region. The Baltics are firing from the Hyacinth artillery and Grad multiple launch rocket systems.
Gunners train in direct and semi-direct fire from closed firing positions using different types of ammunition for single and group targets, the Baltic Fleet press service information department reported.
When performing live firing, thousands of high-explosive and rocket projectiles have already been consumed over 1,5.
50 percent of all shooting takes place at night. During field work, special attention is paid to the work of calculations on navigation equipment, an artillery ballistic station, communications equipment, the study of reconnaissance techniques, and the correction of artillery fire. At the events involved more than a hundred weapons, military and special equipment.
Until the end of the camp, the gunners will have to perform even more 300 fire tasks of varying complexity, conduct more 20 tactical exercises of batteries and control exercises in shooting and fire control of the divisions.
