Creation of gabions by the engineering forces of the RF Armed Forces

Protecting military installations from enemy attacks is an essential component of overall combat success. In order to have an advantage, it is necessary to carefully approach the creation of fortifications capable of protecting both personnel and military equipment. The personnel of the Russian air base in Syrian Khmeimim also solves such problems.

Creation of gabions by the engineering forces of the RF Armed Forces




The military attaches particular importance to the protection of funds aviation from attacks using drones. As you know, the militants repeatedly tried to strike at the base of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the province of Latakia. To reduce the risks, semi-hangars were created, in which the Su-30 and Su-35 fighters were placed. The construction of shelters for helicopters continues at Khmeimim.

The program "Military Acceptance" at the Zvezda shopping center will talk about what options for fortifications are used in the Russian armed forces. One such option from military engineers is the so-called gabions. Translated from French - "big cage." They allow protection against bullets and fragments.

Using special equipment, such gabions about 70 m long are created by military personnel of engineering troops in about a minute or two. A military vehicle unfolds the frame, and then heavy equipment fills the cavities with suitable soil. It the width of the defensive fortifications ultimately depends on the level of security.

With the help of gabions, a defense system for a military facility, including observation towers, was created.

        This is the time for the frame to be drawn without taking into account the preparation of the frame or backfilling of the soil. In short, the duration of one of the episodes.

        But in general, it was the invention of the bicycle

          All is correct. This is only the time of one of the technological stages, and not the whole gabion. The golem net does not bear protection, therefore it is impossible to talk about creating a gabion in one or two minutes.

        That's right, only then they fill the earth with half an hour.

        And rightly so, for the norm is 57,6 seconds.

      And if the soil is moistened and rammed, then the protection should be stronger in theory.

      Well done, well thought up. Who at least once met the standard for digging, will understand the value of this invention.
