These mortars are distinguished by the fact that no special preparation of positions is required for firing from them.
Russian soldiers scout enemy positions with the help of drones. Support the advancing infantry crews, destroy the enemy’s open observation and strongholds, strike the Ukrainian army’s manpower and light armored vehicles.
The method of action called “roving mortars” was called in the military department one of the most effective. It consists in a quick change – literally in a matter of minutes, in the firing position. At the same time, the speed and accuracy of accurately hitting targets is achieved by adjusting fire with the help of a drone.
