At a time when the enthusiasm to undergo intensive training prevails throughout the Korean People's Army (KPA) for ushering in a new heyday in strengthening the state defence capabilities under the banner of self-defence, an artillery fire competition of artillery sub-units under mechanized troops at all levels of the KPA was held on Saturday.

The artillery fire competition was aimed at inspecting and evaluating how the mechanized troops of the KPA have conducted drills in order to increase their mobile artillery combat capabilities true to the militant policy set forth by the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) at the first workshop of military and political cadres of the KPA and at further intensifying the competitive training throughout the KPA.

Pak Jong Chon, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau and secretary of the Central Committee of the WPK, guided the artillery fire competition.

Army General Rim Kwang Il, chief of the General Staff of the KPA, and commanders of the combined units greeted Pak Jong Chon on the spot and inspected the competition with him.

In the competition firing positions and the firing sequence were set by drawing lots, and then the tactical and firepower duties of supporting mechanized troops entering the decisive battle with artillery firepower were issued to the commanders of the combined units so that they can make their decisions and personally command the firing of artillery sub-units to destroy the target.

As soon as the firing orders were given by the commanders of the combined units, gun barrels to annihilate the enemy competitively shelled the target to accurately hit it.

The artillery sub-unit under KPA Unit 604, artillery sub-unit under KPA Unit 337, artillery sub-unit under KPA Unit 243, artillery sub-unit under KPA Unit 671, artillery sub-unit under KPA Unit 488 and artillery sub-unit under KPA Unit 757 attained first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth places respectively in the competition.

In the competition, the unit which had an excellent score and won first place received a master gunner certificate, medal and badge, and the sub-units which had excellent scores were awarded certificates and badges of master gunner sub-unit.

Pak Jong Chon was greatly satisfied with the competition results.
