Russia prepares for weapon firing demonstration
Artillery units of the Russian armed forces' Western Military District are set to carry out firing tests of the 152mm MSTA-S self-propelled howitzer and Tornado-G missile launch rocket system at the Alabino firing range, the Russian Ministry of Defence announced on 6 September.
The trials will see UAS deployed to detect enemy positions and transfer the targeting data to the artillery division command post.
The weapon systems will engage targets and perform manoeuvres in order to avoid counter-strike.
The firing will be assessed using the Zoopark counter-bombardment radio station and the Aistenok reconnaissance radio and firing control complex.
