    In addition, 18 units of military equipment entered the Saratov military training center (artillery): five Acacia self-propelled howitzers, four Msta-B towed howitzers, six Hyacinth self-propelled guns and two Hyacinth towed guns -B ". The training center was also equipped with a SNAR-10 mobile radar reconnaissance station. The 631st combat training center (artillery) is the only place in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation for training junior specialists for artillery units. It annually for the troops prepare more than 1 thousand soldiers and sergeants. The Penza branch of the Military Academy of Material and Technical Support (MTO) received a launcher and transport-loading machine of the Iskander-M operational-tactical missile complex (PTRK).

    So training centre units go four Msta-B towed howitzers and two towed Hyacinth towed guns...

    The return to the active service of tanks not-modernized is also a fact in Russia today.

    When things are taken out of storage it is standard procedure to fully check they are completely operational, but normally they are fitted with new equipment and systems.

    A tank from 1985 would need quite a few upgrades and changes before it would be useful in service today... the audio cassette tape would be replaced by a solid state flash RAM system for instance.

    Even just to make it easier to operate and maintain, certain obsolete components would be changed and communications and optics would also be changed.

    It is al explained in the previous page and in other topics, like the topic about the State Armament Program 2018-2027 and others.

    The MT-12 is called the sniper weapon of the Russian artillery and for good reason with this story.

    Hahahaha... direct fire weapons can offer excellent accuracy, but I am sure capping oil well fires was not part of the requirements when the MT-12 was designed....

    Seems to have gotten the job done though so well done.
