The Vietnamese are thinking about participating in the "Tank Biathlon"

Vietnamese media are discussing the possible participation of their team in the "Tank Biathlon", which is held annually by the Russian Ministry of Defense, according to the baodatviet.vn portal.


The publication notes that the tournament in these applied competitions attracts the attention of the entire planet. Every year the scale of military games increases, the geography of participants expands.

The Vietnamese are thinking about participating in the "Tank Biathlon"


Many in Vietnam would like their tankers to demonstrate their skills in Russia too. Moreover, in the near future the country's army is going to get the main combat Tanks T-90S and T-90SK, and probably the time is right for this.

By participating in the Tank Biathlon, the Vietnamese want to get acquainted with the modern Russian T-72B3 tanks, get a good practice of shooting and driving equipment, which, according to Vietnamese experts, is very close to the export T-90С.

Recall that in the "Tank Biathlon" teams act mainly on Russian-made tanks provided by the host country. Only the Chinese (Type 96), the Indian team (T-90C, which are produced under a Russian license) and the Belarusians (T-72B3 of the newest version purchased in Russia) brought their equipment.

Representatives of Kuwait also performed on Russian vehicles, although American Abrams tanks were exploiting the homeland.

The team of Zimbabwe only on “Tank Biathlon” managed to get acquainted with modern armored vehicles for the first time, at home they had to serve on Soviet and Chinese 50-1 combat vehicles.

It is therefore not surprising that the Vietnamese are not against acquiring a similar experience and squeezing the maximum effect out of their ability to participate in this grand armored competition, reports RG-Sila.

      in Tank Biathlon, teams compete mainly in Russian-made tanks provided by the host country. Only Chinese, Indian team and Belarusians brought their equipment

      But this is news for me ... belay
      I always believed that everyone demonstrates training on their tanks, which they know until the last rivet on the tracks ... Even the Ukrainians did go to the NATO tank competitions in their tanks.

            After the Ukrainians-they will not let us in. The Ukrainians proved that our tanks are better, it remains only to tighten the interaction with the support units (the only thing in which the Ukrainians lost). But it’s not a fact that Russian teams will not get around the NATO team either.

              There is a slightly different competition format - in the Russian emphasis is placed on 1) combat training and crew training; 2) the capabilities of technology (tank) as a combat unit;
              - in NATO, emphasis is placed on interaction in the group (the ability to work according to intelligence and to work as a target designator) + the crew shows skills in orienteering, providing medical assistance, shooting with small arms ...). So to say a slightly different concept

      And not only Vietnam would like to see. For example, I would like to see the Syrian crews, the Kuwaiti crew on 'Abrams' or the Indian on 'Arjuna', the Ukrainian on 'Oplot' (why not, we will skip the political component, just to see who is up for it). Dreams? Rather, yes, but interest in 'tank biathlon' would only grow

        I think they are shy ... And then, reluctance to become "agents of the Kremlin" in the event of complete self-draining.

          I say dreams. Although I would like to see in the parallel race T-72 (90), T-84 and Abrams. What are they capable of in the limit

            Duc, the “abrashka” has a different weight category, as in boxing. It would be nice then to organize a competition, dividing the cars into categories: medium, light heavy, heavy. Then, against the “abrashki and“ carrots ”, we would have to put the IS-7 out of Kubinka. wassat

              They all have one weight category - the main battle tank. And since 'called a cargo ...' laughing

                So yes, but ... again - among the tanks there are Kostya Tszyu, and there are Koli Valuevs. laughing And in most countries (manufacturers) they are "core" solely because there are no others in service. In short, as one Jew said, everything is relative. yes

    “Recall that in the Tank Biathlon, teams compete mainly in Russian-made tanks provided by the host.”
    And what, interestingly, is this due to? Really afraid of competition of imported equipment? Suspiciously ...

      Most of the commanders do not even have an analogue of the T-72B3, so it makes no sense to bring their tanks to them. Americans banned Kuwait from bringing M1A2. Only China and India remain. The Chinese on their own every year drive better and better, and the Indians brought their best tank, tobish T-90.

    Include tank biathlon in the discipline of the Olympiad! And exclude the Russian team for doping, as a doping T-90!

    Participating in the "Tank Biathlon", the Vietnamese want to get acquainted with modern Russian tanks T-72B3
    they will be disappointed, and on the other hand they will be proud that their tanks are much better than in the Russian army
