Artillery Battalion

The task of the artillery is to support the operations of the combat units with indirect fire. Artillery is one of the oldest service branches after infantry and cavalry.

Based on their intended use, artillery weapons are divided into artillery guns and howitzers. The Artillery Battalion is a battalion-sized unit which, during peacetime is comprised of a headquarters, artillery training school, and a command and support battery. The main task of the unit in peacetime is to provide artillery training to conscripts for them to function in an artillery crew.
