Russian Soldiers Train to Fire Mortars

Posted on October 19, 2015 by tim

Russian blogger Yaroslav  paid a visit to an army training facility where soldiers are being taught to use real life mortars. Basically it might seem to be easy task,  just pull a long cord and it shoots, however the full training program  takes over four month and soldiers fire them daily. Even while not yet at the range Yaroslav has heard distant booms from mortars. “Aren’t we late?” he asked his driver assigned by army “I hear them shooting already!”, asked the blogger – “They always fire them here, don’t worry”, said the soldier behind the wheel. Let’s see what he saw there!

At first of course he was instructed on safety being at the range. He couldn’t approach too closely or photograph secret stuff. Other than this he was fully free to do whatever he wanted.

After the shell has been planted into a mortar soldiers sit down and close their ears with hands and count to ten. If nothing happened they continue their routine.
