Colonel Kittu Artillery Brigade

"We were born with a new breath, we will create a new history," said Lep. Colonel Kuttisiri of the Motor Brigade.

(Artillery and Missile Motor) For the purpose of gaining some insight into the nature of the developments in the regiments, I am referring to M Relations

On the night of May 19, 2000, the Uthayan newspaper was banned and we were all brought to the gate of the office. The police sealed the door of the newspaper company and told us to stay in the newspaper library at the door until dawn and then go home. They left their police team to guard the banned company.

As he spoke to a security guard who was about to leave until dawn, he was able to see the proper assessment of the Tamil struggle and his astonishment at the LTTE's fighting prowess, even though he was loyal to his own force, both in office and on duty. While doing so, he spoke about the LTTE's offensive capabilities and the artillery's missile capabilities.

Where the kings used to use weapons of all kinds when they came to fight. Drinking is just the tip of the iceberg. It does not matter where it falls or how much it falls. A soul satisfaction for them in the beating of the tiger. That's all. But the Tiger footsteps are not like that. For example, they measure the base of a camp. A foot threshold will fall into the carpet. The other feet fall into the camp office. Another foot falls into the existing kitchen inside the camp. Gather intelligence so far and beat the model that lit it. Where would the Aravas have been if they had not set foot in the Aakhs Sutari? ”

Needless to say, the LTTE's artillery missile, which is a lion's dream for the troops, is playing on the field today. The LTTE artillery, which has made achievements on the battlefield from time to time, today reinforces the military fact that Tamil Eelam is indirectly under LTTE control. The presence of Sri Lankan troops in the north-east as long as Palaly in the north and the Trincomalee base in the east are within the LTTE's artillery boundary is a story of confession. The LTTE is advancing athletically on the field.

The military development of the LTTE, which faces the special forces of the Sri Lankan Army, which has trained in many countries, did not come in retaliation for Amy's defeat in Mavilar, or in the post - war retirement war that was obtained after the signing of the MoU, as in Southern Sri Lanka. It's heroic. Endless effort. Excessive labor that maximizes with available resources. Such as the technique of breaking down conventional achievements that fall within the definition.

For example, if we take the artillery strength of the Tigers out of history in the eyes of the enemy today, the victory they have achieved today is astounding.

The LTTE was the first to receive two 122 mm artillery pieces, along with 900 cells, seized from the Sri Lankan Army during the 1996 Mullaitivu offensive. Subsequently, an 85 mm artillery was seized in Pulukkunavu, Batticaloa later that year. Keep these three artillery captured by the enemy and learn about its missile skills and how to use it on the field. Knowing how to use it sparingly, they first used artillery in an attack on a Sri Lankan army camp in Vavuniya in 1997. Only then did it become clear to the troops and the outside world that the LTTE was in cahoots.

These were the only three artillery pieces captured by the enemy; No military commentator in the world would have believed that the LTTE's artillery had played a significant role in the retreat of the Sri Lankan Army's Jayasekara into military action against the Sri Lankan Army, which had sunk deep into the Vanni. But the Tigers did it. Did.

Subsequently, two 122 mm artillery pieces and three 152 mm artillery pieces were captured by the LTTE during the LTTE's heroic Elephant Pass rescue operation in 2000. During the Elephant Pass attack, a group of retreating soldiers tied a 122 mm artillery to a vehicle and ran down Galli Beach Road. Seeing this, one of the LTTE's Victor Armored Forces disbanded them, attacked the vehicle in which they were tied up, attacked the assembled soldiers and recovered the artillery.

With this, the LTTE's artillery strength doubled. The Tigers gained the ability to set a record with a single artillery that could normally be achieved by fielding multiple artillery pieces. In this the Sri Lankan army could not get close to the LTTE. During the Jayasikuru military operation, for example, more than half of the troops' artillery shells fell into untargeted fields and farmland, saving the lives of innocent civilians and rarely attacking LTTE positions.

Relentless waves - Operation 3 can be said to be a new leap in the LTTE's artillery strength. The LTTE's artillery inflicted heavy casualties on the troops as there were not many direct clashes in Operation Oyata Waves - 3. During the Operation Tigers-3, the LTTE revealed new strength to strike different positions of the troops simultaneously with artillery. Despite the operation of the same name, the LTTE's ability to strike with artillery wherever its attack took place was overwhelmed. (The incessant waves of casualties suffered by the troops during the LTTE's raid on the Kanagarayan Pond - to be outlined in Operation 3)

Since then, the LTTE's artillery strength has grown beyond the enemy's imagination. The LTTE artillery provided massive assistance to the front line fighters during most of the direct battles during the firefighting operation. Artillery is used on the battlefield as short-range attacks to attack the enemy's support team, attacks on the enemy's supplies and personnel supplies, and attacks on their routes, as well as tactical attacks to divert the enemy's identified targets and divert his attention to advancing forces on the field.


The army has said that the LTTE is currently using 130 mm artillery to attack the Palaly base. But it was not captured by the LTTE by the troops. So how far has the LTTE's artillery strength concentrated? This is a good example of what might have been concentrated. The Kittu Brigade and the Kutty Siri Brigade are specially trained battalions for LTTE artillery.

Despite the general definition of artillery, the LTTE prepares and trains itself in a variety of exceptional applications. As far as the Sri Lankan troops are concerned, orders are being given to set up a separate base for the artillery and to deploy a separate team to attack the LTTE in kind. They would have been shelling the shells as if they were raising an Iyer sacrifice from around the atrium. But this balance does not apply to the Tigers. This is because it is the practice of the Sri Lankan Army to keep the LTTE artillery attack and go to the base by air to predict where it will be launched from. Thus the need to protect the artillery from the air strikes of the troops also makes the LTTE part of the artillery attack training.

Nothing has happened to the LTTE cadre except for the fact that the troops are leaving the report that the LTTE artillery to Palaly today is in Poonakary and in Kalmunai. Considering the possibilities of the range of the artillery and the geographical structure, it is true that the LTTE carried out the artillery attack between Kalmunai and Poonakary.

But what is the world's military definition of this, if it is to launch an offensive with the help of artillery from a distance to prevent the air supply to the 40,000 troops on the peninsula, even if they do not anticipate the danger of getting into an air strike by the troops in the area?
