Kim Jong Un, Chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea and Chairman of the State Affairs Commission and Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, guided a fire training of mortar artillery units of the army corps.

The training was watched by senior officials of the Central Committee of the WPK.

It was aimed at judging and assessing the ability of firepower battle of the mortar artillery of the army corps through competition and increasing the enthusiasm for bringing about revolution in training and expanding successes and at learning about the performance of the light guns and heavy weapons of the People's Army.

The training was conducted in the way of deciding the ranking by putting together the number of hit shells and the time required for carrying out the firepower mission after the mortar artillery units selected from the army corps took the firing areas and fired at the targets in order of firing fixed by lottery. 

In the training the commanders of the army corps gave a fire control over the mortar artillery units of their corps and the artillery firing methods were determined by their decisions.

The mortar artillery demonstrated the combat efficiency of the one-match-for-a-hundred artillerymen ready to fully carry out any combat tasks of fire support.

Comrade Kim Jong Un expressed great satisfaction over the fact that all the army corps have ideologically accepted the Party's idea on attaching importance to artillerymen and prepared the fire units well to cope with the modern warfare skilfully in the flames of launching the crack gunner movement.

He praised time and again the amazing marksmanship of the mortar artillery companies of all the army corps which got excellent marks including the second and 10th corps that fired 60 shells and correctly hit the targets with all of them, and conveyed his thanks to the firing areas at the observation post.

A diploma, medal and badge of crack gunner were awarded to the mortar artillery company under the second corps that took the first place in the ranking of training judgment, and crack gunner unit certificates and badges to all the units which got wonderful marks in the competition.

Comrade Kim Jong Un said:

It is important for the People's Army to strengthen training for making a good use of mortar and other light guns and heavy weapons in operations and battles. Since the use of the artillery force in modern warfare is the most important factor of deciding the outcome of operations and battles and furthermore, that of a war, we should put greater spurs to combat preparedness of the artillerymen under the slogan of attaching importance to and strengthening artillerymen.

Comrade Kim Jong Un put forward crucial tasks for training of artillerymen and modernization of artillery.
