BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 A.M.) – Russia’s Western Military District showed off their missile systems and artillery at the Luga testing range in the Saint Petersburg Oblast on Saturday.

The drills coincided with the Day of Russia’s Missile and Artillery Forces.

More than 1,000 soldiers, over 140 models of the artillery as well as the multi-use missile systems, such as the BM-27 Uragan, the BM-21 Grad, Smerch, the 2S19 Msta-S and the 2A65 Msta-B howitzers, as well as the 9K114 Shturm anti-tank missile system, were involved in the showcase.

Spectators were treated to other military exercises, such as drone reconnaissance, a ground battle and flamethrowers.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
