              there are no such reasons. and it cannot be. underwater driving is the implementation of clear instructions. there is no way to improvise from the word at all. if the mechanic came out it means the car is already full. staying there makes no sense.

              It is not that bewildering, it’s just a dumbass. What could be saved there at a depth of 4 m, in an already flooded tank, but there was no other way to leave it, but this was already done by a mech-water cadet?

            Dim, hi. hi I myself wound an urgent one in the tank. We had underwater driving in training even on old T-55s. Anything could happen there, it doesn't even say what machines they trained on. Any instructor knows that once he has stalled at depth, it is useless to fight for some mythical survivability. There is only one way out - to open the drape hatch and go upstairs through the tower, there is no serious pressure there at four meters and there cannot be, especially since if the depth is four, then from the tower hatch to the surface is less than two, you can just get out and get up on the "roof" of the tower. And with a tank in such a situation, there is only one thing left: to dive in IDAS, hook on the cables, drag with tractors and give it to the repairmen.
            In this case, something abnormal clearly happened, the mechanic came out, and the instructor died. But the instructor is not an illiterate salaga, otherwise he would not have been an instructor. And again: what model of the tank, the fighting compartment and the place of the mechanic are separated by a partition, or not?

            In any case, the person is sorry for our condolences to the families of the deceased.

                  Opachki, how interesting it is.
                  Bikin is a city (since 1938) in Russia, the administrative center of the Bikinsky district of the Khabarovsk Territory.
                  .
                  And the Khabarovsk Territory has always been part of the KDVO, the headquarters of the KDVO was in the city of Khabarovsk. I served in the KDVO from December 1988, I was in Bikin for the first time in 1993, the second time in 2002 The first time I traveled, the second time in the guard, I stood at the station for a day Bikin. After the unification of ZabVO and KDVO, the Eastern Military District was formed whose headquarters is again located in Khabarovsk. And by the way, ZVO is the Western Military District, and Bikin is 8613 km from Moscow, although this is already outdated data, Moscow is constantly expanding, so it is quite possible that Bikin has already become closer to Moscow, but not so much to get into the ZVO.

                    Part was new, created from scratch and we lived happily.

          Let's start with breathing apparatus! OPVT includes three of these. They lie in boxes around the tower. They are identical to those of submariners, but more compact. Most likely, I did not check the performance. And you don’t have to be able to get out of the tank when it is flooded! Or to catch hold of something for death! And there’s nothing to catch on especially !.

We would have to wait for details. At least find out what kind of tank. There seems to be one river there - Ingoda. The satellite view is very calm, winding .. The case is not ordinary.

        Not true. Ingoda is a fast and cold river. Like most Siberian rivers. You go on the knee - it just blows with the current.

        I will not argue about "cold" because it is a subjective characteristic. Even in spite of the fact that the main filling of this river is rainwater, not glaciers.
        But let me disagree with the characteristic "fast". Fast rivers are usually straight. Ingoda in the Chita area is at least very winding. This time. Secondly, we look at the water consumption. Aunt Vika reports that a little less than 80 m ^ 3 / sec flows at the mouth of the Ingoda. Let us assume that all this water also flows in the Chita region. We take a ruler and measure the width of Ingoda in the Chita region. It turns out from 60 to 100 m in different places. Let's take 60 for calculations, although I would take 80.
        Compare, for example, with Don, who is called Quiet. So. at the mouth, where the width is about 350 m, the average flow rate per year is 900 m ^ 3 / sec. Those. 2,5 cubic meters of water per second flows through every meter of the "Quiet" Don. And in the Chita region, 1,333 cubic meters per second flows along Ingoda. So how can you call this dam fast after that?
        Well and yes, the tanks are trying to smuggle along the bottom only suitable places for this. Those. in quiet, calm, with a flat and clean bottom. Especially for educational purposes.

    It is unlikely that of course the instructor continued to fight there for something, especially after depressurization and leaving the tank with a mechanical drive. Most likely for some reason I could not get out. The reason will be established by the investigation.

    I do not quite understand about the survivability of the tank under water ... Did the instructor seal the tank compartments? Or closed waterproof bulkheads? Or drowned out a nuclear reactor? He died by his own stupidity. So it would be — he left the tank, and then the divers simply picked up the tank on the cables and pulled out the tank - this is a common thing. No casualties.

    at a depth of 4 meters, if the water is not cloudy, you can dive without divers
    ordinary guys who can swim can stay at this depth for 1 dive of 20-30 seconds
    my record (without moving) remained under water for almost 5 minutes
    finally, you can simply launch 2 tanks with a cable so that they pick up the car as a net and pull it out in shallow water. But it depends on the bottom of the reservoir.

      The crew does not fight for the survivability of the tank, it’s absurd. There are two ways: 1. If the tank stopped the engine under water and no one tried to start it, then just sit and wait when the tank is evacuated by a tug, which must be without fail when overcoming the water obstacles, as well as divers. 2 Slowly flood the tank, wait until it is full and then get out of the tank, but this is an extreme case, because the flooded tank is capital, at best it is suitable only for driving. Something like this

    There is a certain sequence of actions of the tank crew when overcoming a water obstacle along the bottom. One of them is that when approaching a water barrier, the crew must turn on the regeneration system in the IP, then, when the car stops at the bottom and an unsuccessful attempt to start the engine under water, put on the IP masks and take 2-4 breaths to start the full operation of the isolating gas mask. Then - at the command of the commander on the TPU (intercom), each crew member must take out one "triplex" and report to the commander about their readiness to leave. After complete flooding, the crew opens the hatches and gets out of the car. The commander controls the exit of the gunner and checks whether the mechanic came out.
    This is very brief ...
    The instructor most likely could not join the IPK .....
    It happened .... unfortunately. Even on land, not everyone could turn on the IPshka correctly.
