Russian military drivers for the first time performed at competitions in Serbia


Competitions started with a test of knowledge of the rules of the road. The check was carried out according to international rules that have some differences from the Russian ones, but our team showed good results,
says release.

The second stage, according to the department, “was the test at the training site: reverse movement in a confined space, parallel parking and the most difficult vehicle reversing in a limited zigzag rut.” It is noted that "unfamiliar dimensions of foreign cars provided by the organizers of the competition, significantly hampered the passage of the distance." In the end, the Russians closed the top three, losing to the Serbs and Austrians.

However, at the final stage, the Russian team found itself in the off-road conditions close to our military, where it showed itself from the best side: “Driving through natural obstacles — steep ascents and descents, water barriers, swampy areas, bridges and other difficult obstacles — and the Russian military found themselves in native element. Unfortunately, our soldiers didn’t succeed in reducing the gap between the hosts of the competition, but the Russians, who had previously occupied the second place, managed to overtake the Austrians in the last race. ”



It is also reported that representatives of the Serbian command, military attaches of the Federal Republic of Germany, Austria, Hungary, Bosnia, Herzegovina and other European countries watched the competitions for servicemen.

The Russian team, which participated in such competitions for the first time, without studying the track and on unfamiliar cars, was highly praised by foreign colleagues.

    Russian military drivers for the first time performed at competitions in Serbia
    I am very happy for ours, for their second place and for the fact that Serbia remained intact. Since back in cadet times, I remember the saying that in our army we must be wary of three explosives - explosives, military doctors and military drivers

          I just had to fail at the hospital, and there the doctors were quite professional, and the staff, thanks to them, were attentive, but every time we got into the car, we weren’t sure that we would get there, it’s good that you don’t really bother with this , Now I would definitely walk better on foot ...

            Well, we have one, one another is not a hindrance. Simply, if we take the same military doctors, they are not overwhelmingly bad and the medical staff, merciful sisters are also above all praise, but again everything is specific ... they are jack-of-all-trades, and they cannot and often act very differently tough, if not cruel, to patients ... they are not like their civic colleagues, the environment and resources are not the same. So it turns out that sometimes getting to them, even on a trifle, is something in that Gestapo ... I remember how such a SPECIAL, specifically SPECIAL, from the capitals, treated me in the Far East, when a simple scratch was not treated and the suppuration had already begun to threaten serious the consequences .... how I screamed, but he cured, for which I am very grateful to him. But to fall into his hands, the next time the hunt is not big.

        I'm not talking about ours, I seriously asked. I wanted to know the level of competition. It’s bad if there were only 3 teams

          I get it. But since the competition is international, then clearly not three countries participated.hi

    Did something hit my eye or didn’t I understand anything?
    Orientation by and without instruments, arriving at a point in time, the ability to eliminate minor breakdowns in a short time, are the main factors for a wartime driver?
    Or is it a completely different competition,
    on knowledge of traffic rules ..................
