A joint artillery group of units of the Central Military District and the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Tajikistan stopped the advance of the main forces of "militants" at the training "Rubezh-2022" of the Collective Rapid Deployment Forces of the Central Asian region.
The “Gvozdika” and “Acacia” self-propelled howitzers and “Grad” multiple rocket launchers delivered a heavy barrage to the “enemy”, distributing the targets between the groups of artillery.
From closed firing positions, units armed with 120 mm 2B11 mortars and high-explosive fragmentation mines destroyed crowds of “enemy troops” hiding in the folds of the terrain at a range of more than 2,000 meters. Russian “Orlan-10” strike drones provided target acquisition and fire control.
The active phase of the trainings takes place from 17 to 21 October in southern Tajikistan. Military contingents of the member states of the Central Asian region and task forces of the CSTO Joint Staff and the CSTO Secretariat are taking part in the practical operations. The core of the Russian contingent is made up of servicemen of the Central Military District from the 201st Military Base.
The total number of training participants in the Republic of Tajikistan is about 1,000 people and more than 300 units of military and special equipment, including aircraft, helicopters and strike drones.
Participants practice preparing and conducting a joint operation to block and destroy illegal armed groups that have invaded a Collective Security Treaty Organization member state.
