A new discipline has been added to the methodology for training crews for the Tank Biathlon as part of the experience gained by the command of the Russian Armed Forces in the Syrian Arab Republic. The first such competitions were held in the Central Military District, the Military Survey was told in the district press service.


A new method of preparation for the "Tank Biathlon". The first competitions were held in the Central Military District


Now the crews at the qualifying stages before the All-Army Competition must pass the race as part of a team of three tanks (platoon), who simultaneously overcome the track, and points are counted for the last crew.

Another innovation of the new discipline is to execute firing from closed firing positions using reconnaissance and fire circuits. For this, the platoon commander is given an unmanned aerial vehicle and artillery bussol is allocated.

Competitions were held at the Totsk training ground in the Orenburg region. 7 teams took part in them on T-72B3 tanks.

    Interestingly will these innovations be included in the main competitions?

      It is unlikely that the Chinese will also have to learn to use the compass.

        the geography has expanded, I would already suggest holding a kind of Olympics at the training grounds at the training grounds of other participating countries .. otherwise everyone will soon get tired of traveling - our win constantly, and it will be more interesting

      And why should you share your experience with others? Although, of course, I would watch the platoon race.

      A platoon race is possible .. but shooting from closed positions, and even at the direction of the BPL .. who is it to compete with?

        But what is our problem if in armored vehicles and in tactics of application we are ahead of the rest? We are introducing what we consider relevant in a modern war ... and let the rivals disagree or study ... hi

    I remember half a year ago it was about the application of the Syrian experience in our troops and some skeptics said that "how can the" desert experience "be applied with us?" here is another example.

    Well, damn it, they survived - tank biathlon.
    Against this, the whole Olympics and football with hockey seems just cheap pathos.
    The next in line, probably, will be a satellite biathlon instead of trap shooting on plates.
    We will see our "Relight" on TV)).

    As already noted in the comments - you need to organize in another country, at an unfamiliar training ground. The result will be more interesting. A couple of days to look around, drive along the test site, and the competition at another.

    There are no limits to perfection ... famously twisted.
