In a separate artillery brigade named after General-Cornet Alexei Almazov, which is subordinated to the Marine Command, scheduled training on artillery reconnaissance was conducted.

The lesson was held at one of the training grounds of Mykolayiv region, it was attended by reconnaissance units of the brigade and divisions, during which the issues of identifying targets, processing the results of reconnaissance and transmitting the obtained data to the means of destruction were worked out.

To conduct reconnaissance and determine targets, modernized domestic and modern foreign technical means were used, which the brigade is equipped with today. Including those received in the framework of military assistance to Ukraine from the United States.

According to Colonel Oleksandr Suk, Chief of the Missile Troops and Artillery and Deputy Commander of the Marines, the training was conducted in two stages. During the first stage, information on reconnaissance of targets was collected and transferred to the artillery reconnaissance point. After that, the received data were processed, the priorities of the targets were determined and proposals were prepared to the brigade commander regarding their defeat.
During the second stage, work was practiced as part of the reconnaissance fire complex. One of the main features of this principle of operation is that the obtained intelligence information goes through several chains such as processing, generalization, etc. and is immediately used to inflict fire damage.
