November 19 - Day of Rocket Troops and Artillery


November 19 marks a memorable day of the Armed Forces - the Day of Rocket Forces and Artillery. This annual professional holiday is set in recognition of the great merits of the Soviet artillery in the victory at Stalingrad, the beginning of which was laid in the counteroffensive of the Soviet troops 19 in November 1942 of the year. The key role in that counterattack belonged to artillery. The most powerful artillery preparation using the famous Katyushas predetermined the success of the entire operation of the Soviet troops, marking the beginning of the complete defeat of the Nazi invaders at Stalingrad.

November 19 - Day of Rocket Troops and Artillery

Modern Russian artillery includes missile, rocket and artillery brigades, among which are high-powered artillery battalions, rocket artillery regiments, separate reconnaissance battalions, as well as general military artillery and artillery of military bases. Organizationally, units and subunits of rocket troops and artillery are included in other types and branches of the Armed Forces of Russia.

Missile forces and artillery perform tasks to conquer and hold fire superiority over the enemy, defeat its offensive means, disrupt the command and control systems, reconnaissance and EW, destroy the defenses and infrastructure of the enemy, participate in the destruction of enemy airborne and naval landing.

Today, the combat potential of the Russian missile forces and artillery is steadily increasing, the troops receive the latest technology, including the upgraded 152-mm self-propelled howitzers Msta-SM. Jet units are replenished with samples of the modern MLRS Tornado-G.
The arsenal of anti-tank units is replenished with the new all-weather complex "Chrysanthemum-S", which has a unique ability to hit armored targets in conditions of limited visibility. This innovative complex is equipped with anti-tank missiles that can penetrate the armor of any modern tank.

In addition, missile formations instead of the Tochka and Tochka-U missile systems receive state-of-the-art Iskander-M missile systems. This year, two brigade sets of this complex were transferred to the missile formations of the Ground Forces, сообщают in the Ministry of Defense.

    Happy holiday, friends!

    Peace of the country - it is like granite
    This is great - so be it
    For those who keep it!
    Missile Forces Day do not forget!
    The rockets in the mines are fast asleep
    Gunners are all on guard
    Everything from top to toe
    They are ready, even on a holiday
    When it comes to someone’s mind
    But these are now not a few ...
    Take a chance to make some noise
    We have something ... what would they be gone!

    "Song of the gunners"

    Burns in our hearts
    Love for the land of darling
    We are going to a mortal battle
    For the honor of his native country.
    Cities are burning
    Covered in smoke
    Rattles in gray forests
    The harsh god of war

    The exact order is given,
    Fatherland calls us!
    Of hundreds of thousands of batteries
    For the tears of our mothers
    For our Motherland -
    Fire, fire!

    Find out, mother,
    Get to know your friend wife
    Discover a faraway home
    And my whole family
    What hits and burns the enemy
    Our steel blizzard
    What will we carry
    To birthmarks.

    The exact order is given,
    Fatherland calls us!
    Of hundreds of thousands of batteries
    For the tears of our mothers
    For our Motherland -
    Fire, fire!

    The hour of victory will strike
    The end of the campaign will come
    But before you leave
    To your family’s homes
    In honor of the native army,
    In honor of our people
    We are a joyful salute
    At midnight we’ll give.

    The exact order is given,
    Fatherland calls us!
    Of hundreds of thousands of batteries
    For the tears of our mothers
    For our Motherland -
    Fire, fire!

    Happy Gods of War! drinks

    Forgive the old guys, I’ve already decently rolled ... But what would you do without us - civilian physics lectures ... Ignorance of physics cannot be replaced with cramming of shooting instructions ... One of the best mathematicians in the history of world mathematics is A. Lyapunov himself, even , mainly, not from patriotic convictions, in the absence of which it was impossible to suspect people of his generation, but from the conviction that only mathematicians could be excellent artillerymen, he took up science and entered a military school ... If my memory serves me right (with words of my head of the department, war veteran, theoretical physicist Kobelev L.Ya.) only battery Lyapunov (the one he commanded) hit all the assigned targets during the counter-training on the KG ... He, in violation of all installations, shot his own way ... Forgive me again for writing floridly, but as I think, I say + coming ... Gunners - Happy All of You !!
