During the exercise, artillery men of the Southern Military District learn to use the latest artillery weapons.

In the Krasnodar Territory at the Molkino testing ground, for the first time, the artillerymen of the Southern Military District (SKR) used modernized 152-mm self-propelled howitzers Msta-S, which entered service with the district troops in May 2013, during a large-scale tactical exercise.


In order to inflict a massive fire attack on the forces of a conditional enemy, more than 35 upgraded self-propelled howitzers were involved.

The upgraded artillery system "Msta-S" has significant structural differences from the previous modification. It has a new automated fire control system, increased target rate of fire, as well as the possibility of using digital electronic maps, which significantly speeds up the orientation of the terrain in difficult physiographic conditions and allows you to perform fire missions more quickly and more efficiently.

In the exercises of artillery units of the 49 th army army of the Southern Military District, new rocket launcher systems Tornado-G are also involved, which are more than their predecessor in combat effectiveness in the 2,5-3 - the BM-21 "Grad" system. 1,5 is less than the time required to bring the system on alert and inflict fire damage, and the radius of destruction of one Tornado-G machine is about 1 ha.

In addition, in the training battle, the artillerymen of the Southern Military District use 152-mm self-propelled howitzers “Akatsiya”, 122-mm “Gvozdika” and 82-mm mortars.

In addition to the use of powerful modern weapons, artillerymen work out tactical methods of misleading a conventional enemy. Subtly moving to a given area, units actively use, in order to disguise, the features of the terrain landscape, as well as means of imitating false objects. At a distance of about 10 km, gunners from the flanks inflicted massive fire damage at times to the superior forces of the conventional enemy.

During the exercise, military personnel will perform more than 30 fire missions and 15 standards, including the change of firing positions.

About 2 thousand troops and more 300 units of artillery weapons, military and special equipment were involved in the large-scale tactical training of artillery units. The exercise will last until the end of September.

    Well, such gun mounts are good against large clusters of infantry, the technology here does not even smell close to the fight against terrorism.
    Large military units of the enemy, we all know where they are.

      "fits" does not "fit."
      And here terrorism, not a word is said about it.
      And even if it is said, why did you get the idea that modernized art mortar systems and rocket fire systems are not suitable for destroying beards?

        To beat a gang of two three people from such weapons is not serious.
        In general, it has now become fashionable to talk about the fight against terrorism, hehe heh, especially on TV, you laugh with laughter when our large leaders pompously talk about it.

          Not seriously with old fire control systems and shells, if the modernization is deep, then weapons against bearded men are very effective. It’s a pity the article is just a comment from the press service!

          It’s very serious, convenient and you need to do this. Definitely this is better than chasing groups of fighters to capture, who have to run through the mountains in full gear and as a result, as in most cases, does not find anyone!

      Any ..... Any artillery mount. Any caliber is COMPLETE and justifiable can be used even for the enemy in areas of concentration, even for single targets. It all depends on the situation and the importance of the tasks.
      This artillery installation has in its ammunition guided high-precision ammunition with an accuracy of 1-2 meters in range and direction. At the same time, the installation itself can be placed at the firing position during multi-kilometer removal.

      Namely, that is not against retaliatory shell attacks. Such a facade is easy to pierce. Who generally accepted this for production ... Inside the kamikaze they will sit. And the generals invested money for bending the facade in their villas. Stsuki over. Put them in the tower and break it. Feeders.

        What are shell attacks? How do you like the facade? The task of self-propelled guns in general is firing from closed firing positions. Direct fire is a must, but not the main "option". Reservation - bulletproof and anti-shatter. The tower in this case provides the placement of guns, ammunition and calculation. Against

        I will add that now self-propelled artillery in general is in direct connection and does not participate with tanks, namely from closed positions!

      And where did you see in the list what is called "the latest artillery weapons" in this article? All this technique has already celebrated the "round" anniversaries. The modernization carried out does not mean that it suddenly became "the latest." All these "M", "C", "G" added to the names do not make the old technique "modern", but only improve its characteristics.
      It’s just that sometimes the articles will be called so “loudly”, but in the end it turns out that in fact there are planned classes using standard equipment. This is certainly a very joyful event for all of us, after the salary, but the content does not correspond to the stated topic.

        The M-109 was also not made yesterday (it was put into service in 1973), and is also being modified, and no one complains about this. Even at this stage, 2C19 has greater prospects for improvement. With electronics, I hope, we will figure it out over time.

      Kind! This artillery mount was developed in the 70s of the last century. OLD! Russian artillery in a very indecent form.
      I’m an artilleryman with a length of service of 34 calendar years, I tell you responsibly: in Russia there are GOOD ideas, but the state has junk.
      Of particular concern are the commander’s fire control vehicles (KMUO). KMUO - heart and Soul of artillery fire - .... sorry -.
      И MSTA without sensible CMUO - no more than a piece of iron.

        At the current Russia Arms EXPO exhibition, Radiozavod OJSC (Penza) will exhibit its products. In particular, the enterprise will present a unified command and observation artillery machine. At the plant’s stand it will be possible to see the layout and description of the machine, which can also be used as a command-and-staff vehicle to provide automated control of artillery units and reconnaissance artillery units during preparation and during military operations.

        ... KMUO - the heart and Soul of artillery fire ...
        Colleague, you forgot to mention about "eyes and ears" artillery. Without them, there will be no bulk of goals and there will be nothing to do at the CMWO. In this area (artillery reconnaissance) is also stagnant. The speed of notching, processing and transmitting data about the target is such a “brake” .... Yes, and the possibilities of artillery reconnaissance in range are still limited. UAV in artillery ... ay!

        I agree to all 100. In this very SFD in the city of N, they received new self-propelled guns, and there is still no new complex. 70% efficiency - down. The range of capabilities of the ASUNO is reduced to a number of possibilities for manual entry. And since you have to press the buttons, you still need to learn, then they still twist the sight in the old manner manually. Madhouse !!

    Yes I would like to! But for now, it is obvious that they will defeat the target by shooting at areas from the MLRS. It is necessary to strive to hit targets with several shots, and preferably with one and as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, high-precision ammunition is not mentioned in the article.

    On the land of Msta with a fire control system, in the sky above the mountains of the UAV with a heat sink. Only this is not feasible. Who then will serve in the organs of Chechnya if they put the entire previous shift in the mountains.
