The artillery Victory salute will fly up Moscow sky on May 9 tends to become the fireworks display champion as of number and a variety of new types and spectra.
The artillery Victory salute will fly up Moscow sky on May 9, thereby marking the 60th Victory Day anniversary, tends to become the fireworks display champion as of number and a variety of new types and spectra. Vyacheslav Paradnikov, Moscow military district's separate fireworks battalion commander told about it in an interview with RIA "Novosti", adding that over 40 various types of fireworks would fly up Moscow sky, numbering five spectra more, than a year ago. "Prompt at 22.00 the first salute volley will fly up a sky on my signal. This year the artillery Victory salute will be especially colorful and sensational ", - Paradnikov said. In line with ritual, 30 artillery volleys will be fired invoking 4500 tubes. Eighteen 63 year-old Great Patriotic wartime guns "ZIS-3" will also fire volleys. Paradnikov has noted that many of them survived fierce fighting, keeping German bomb fragments and bullet holes on their bodies. There will be 31 launching sites in the different places throughout city, with Vorobyevy Gory (Vorobyevy Hills) as Moscow's principal launching site, from where it will be possible to watch the most beautiful and clarion salute and to see 16 more fireworks launching sites from the highs. The interval between volleys will make 20 seconds. The spectators would be able to see various types of fireworks, including the "Flares of the Victory ", spreading mix colors from its center, the "Summer lightning" tricolor, the symbolic red "Cruiser Aurora's Volley", the "Pulsar", the "Nested doll", the "Bullfighting", the "Sunrise", the "Fairy tales" etc. Spectra differ not only in colors and names, but also in height of its performance. The salutes breaking in the sky at a height over 100 meters number 8-10 types, over 200 meters - 12-13, over 300 meters - about 10. Each volley will emerge into a unique colorful picture in the sky resulting from the calculations made by fireworks experts. This year the combination of volleys from the salute's principal site in Moscow will be first ever "thought over" by a computer. "We decided to try computer simulation technique for spectra patterns and combinations selection. The point is that the greater then anywhere in Moscow amount of the artillery pieces (more than 1000 tubes) and equipment will be placed at Vorobyevy Gory. In general, handling of the salute will be controlled from the site at Vorobyevy Gory", - Paradnikov has specified, adding that if the experiment with computer based development of salute's "scripts" succeed, then in the future a computer will be entrusted for a "composition" of fireworks design Moscow-wide. "Pattern selection experience in colors composition comes in the course of time. It is not simple to make a comprehensive composition, but with a computer display of the results the planning mistakes become vivid." - Paradnikov noted. The fireworks display will involve some 500 servicemen, and just as many policemen will maintain order at launching sites in Moscow.
