Zimbabwean scouts get lost in the Siberian forest

92
The Zimbabwe team, which took the last place in the first stage of the military intelligence competition in the framework of the International Army Games in Novosibirsk, faced difficulties during the march-throw, the team members explained this by the fact that there is no such forest in their country, сообщили in the department of information and mass communications of the Ministry of Defense of Russia.

In addition to the Zimbabwe team, the competition is attended by the military from Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, China, Russia and Uzbekistan. According to the results of the first stage, which includes landing from a helicopter, a forced march and organizing an ambush with the capture of a conventional enemy, the Russians are leading.

The most difficult stage for the team is reconnaissance in the forest, as there are no such forests in Zimbabwe. Thanks to the competition, the team has a unique opportunity to gain experience in orienteering in forest areas
- Reported by the department.

Zimbabwean scouts get lost in the Siberian forest


However, noted in the Ministry of Defense, intelligence officers from Zimbabwe are not going to give up: they intend to catch up in the following stages.

According to Major Justin Zhou's senior team, the military has been preparing for a competition in their homeland for four months. He also explained that the Zimbabwe team prepared a special presentation as a surprise, which will be presented at the closing ceremony of the competition. Details scouts are kept secret.

Today in Novosibirsk, the second stage of the competition "Excellence in troop intelligence" has started in the framework of the International Army Games-2017.

Mechanics-drivers of intelligence units will demonstrate their skills and professional skills in driving infantry fighting vehicles in adverse weather conditions.

The driver will perform the test exercise "Driving an infantry fighting vehicle in difficult terrain conditions" along a route longer than 5 km. Combat vehicles must move at the highest possible speed and overcome artificial and natural obstacles: a track bridge, a passage in a mine-explosive barrier and between pillars during ascent and descent, a ford, a section of barriers and maneuvering, and an anti-tank ditch.

The second stage of the competition will be completed by loading an infantry fighting vehicle onto a railway platform and a heavy-duty semi-trailer for accuracy and time.

Teams of Armenia, Zimbabwe and Kazakhstan are competing in infantry fighting vehicles BMP-2, which are in service with the Russian army. A team from the People's Republic of China uses its military equipment.

The rest of the reconnaissance units will comply with standards for communications, military medical training, special tactical training, and radiation, chemical and biological protection.

          Zimbabwean president, 92-year-old Robert Mugabe, unveiled a monument to himself, despite the fact that the country is in the midst of an economic crisis and protests against the government are taking place.
          The author of the monument was the local artist Dominic Benhura, who worked on the monument for six months. He said that he wanted to create a sculpture as large as possible so that it would reflect the scale of the country's leader and make a “special impression”. As a result, the sculpture came out 3,8 meters high.
          President Mugabe himself at first said that the monument was donated to him free of charge, but at the opening of the monument he stated that the author of the work would be awarded with something more than “simple thanks”.

            The customs there are simple as a stick: now they admire the greatness of Mugabe and envy Benhur, and then the sculptor will be offered to grab a monument.

    It is necessary to teach Zimbabwean scouts. Survival skills in the Siberian taiga and the Arctic zone of Russia will be very useful to them.

    He also explained that the Zimbabwe team prepared a special performance as a surprise, which will be presented at the closing ceremony of the competition.

    A tom-tom game and Zulus fighting dances?

    Zimbabwean president, 92-year-old Robert Mugabe, unveiled a monument to himself, despite the fact that the country is in the midst of an economic crisis and protests against the government are taking place.
    The author of the monument was the local artist Dominic Benhura, who worked on the monument for six months. He said that he wanted to create a sculpture as large as possible so that it would reflect the scale of the country's leader and make a “special impression”. As a result, the sculpture came out 3,8 meters high.
    President Mugabe himself at first said that the monument was donated to him free of charge, but at the opening of the monument he stated that the author of the work would be awarded with something more than “simple thanks”.

    "Zimbabwean scouts got lost in the forest" - you don’t have to play a little sand - here is Taiga, but in the taiga terrible bears and small insect-related painfully are called “KOMAR”.
    Once, with friends, we went fishing and took the 24-hour mosquito repellent repellent, but the mosquitoes did not see what was written there and .... only a bonfire made from raw branches defended. In the taiga, midges are a cloud.

    It’s no wonder that they were lost. Warriors from the southern hemisphere. And here the compasses work normally. But they trained better in Kazakhstan. More suitable conditions. By location. Siberia-shaitan. Taiga doesn’t forgive mistakes. Plus mosquitoes, gadflies. Most lousy midge This is not with crocodiles to catch up with playing.

    I can’t find it, but it seems that there was an article on the VO that pin.dos were lost in the spetsnaz exercises, either in the taiga or in the Urals ... And the head of the exercises sent our specialists to look for amers. I don’t remember verbatim, but there was a phrase, like, "... there is a zone in the zone, and VVshniki on the towers shoot at the level of reflexes, and here, there are still military personnel of a foreign state army." As far as I remember, they saved the ov.

    The most difficult stage for the team is exploration in the forest, since there are no such forests in Zimbabwe.
    At least they know what kind of toy they are holding in their hands. Probably not, because they don’t have forests and a hundred years no compass.

    The poor people were looking for a palm tree to climb higher, but they didn’t find it, but they couldn’t do it differently ... and indeed from the other hemisphere ... maybe their compasses are set in the wrong steppe?

    There is an old joke about how the Chukchi in the taiga got lost. One says: "I heard that when you get lost, you need to shoot in the air!" So they shot into the air until the arrows ran out.

    Pleased! Merry guys, two scouts and the third suhpay! If something is eaten. Reward them with a mirror, beads and a compass. Now you have to root for them. By the way, they are all made of mortars today, but not their targets.
