    This is all interesting, of course, but I would be more glad if such races were conducted at the "biathlon" as part of a tank platoon, with the implementation of fire and tactical tasks.

        Just do not replace the real service in the tank troops with biathlon, but this sometimes happens with us.

        They showed funny blacks on Thursday, I won’t call the team. They didn’t get right from the start (they changed the tank). The shells loaded 4 from the floor. minutes))), the first shot at 22 minutes.
        It is sad that the broadcast starts at 23.00 "Star".

      It is more a pity that the T-80s do not get on the track of this competition anymore, only as "exotic"

      Again, the Chinese howl will raise that they have condemned they will and will not come the next year. India didn’t come today, oh yes, they have a war with Pakistan!

    Hurray, I support the Uzbeks! Give the first division!
    In May of this year, they held their biathlon at the training ground near Chirchik.
    The dust is incredible, the audience almost climb under the tanks, but nothing happened!

    Again the Chinese will whine that the Russians won unfairly in their T-72B3. We arrived at the Type-96 again, maybe at least this time they won't fall apart on the move? What prevents the Type-99 from rolling in? Probably, we thought so, we will lose again, on whom then to blame?

    Kuwait (2 arrivals).
    They are armed with 150 M84 tanks /// Yugoslav version of T-72 /// and 200 Abrams tanks. They have an interesting army - there are so many tanks for 10.000 ground troops.

    it is noticeably heavier. And here you do not need the armor or power of the gun - you need speed, reliability and accuracy.
    type 96 in this regard is not worse.
