The changing operational situation during a modern combined arms battle requires high maneuverability of anti-aircraft artillery units from all personnel, the press release explains. “For this, the tasks of destroying air targets from artillery installations and redeployment in difficult mountain conditions are being worked out in a short time. Practical shooting at ground targets is also carried out during the exercise,” the message further says.
