Russian servicemen will reconstruct the artillery preparation for the 1942 Stalingrad operation under the codename “Uran”, which became the beginning of a fundamental turning point in World War II, the CMD press-service says.
“On the eve of the 70th anniversary of the victory in World War II, artillerists of the CMD combined arms unit in the Orenburg region will reconstruct the artillery preparation held at the beginning of 1942 Stalingrad offensive operation on April, 3. The training will involve more than a thousand servicemen and 200 pieces of military equipment,” – a statement said.
Multiple rocket launchers used in the “Uran” operation will be replaced with modern equivalents. Thus, instead of the famous “Katyusha” guards mortars, “Grad” and “Uragan” MLRS will be involved in the reconstruction.
