Military personnel of the mortar units of the combined arms army of the Western Military District (WMD) destroyed more than a hundred objects of the mock enemy as part of a control check in the Leningrad region.
The mortar crews fired 120-mm Sani portable mortars at hidden and moving targets that mimic military equipment, manpower and fortified enemy facilities. The shooting was carried out with high-explosive shells at a distance of up to one and a half thousand meters.
In addition, the servicemen worked out the standards for deploying mortars from a marching position to a combat position, for detecting targets and correcting fire using portable surveillance equipment.
More than 150 military personnel and about 30 units of combat and special equipment of mortar units were involved in the control check.
