      Apparently there are 9 crews. I forgot something really like it, but apparently the 2nd teams will have one spare crew.

    Half of the interest in biathlon is a technical duel with Chinese tanks.

    A convenient thing is coronavirus, how much you can write off on it ...
    Given the tensions on the border between China and India, it would be possible to hold competitions in these countries only with the exclusion of teams.

      These two could well arrange biathlon in Tibet. But they preferred Russia.

        The main thing is that they really do not grapple, limit themselves to sports)

    Surprisingly, the tanks on the platforms are fastened with pads and wire.

      This method of securing cargo is perhaps the simplest, cheapest, practical and most reliable, although there are variations on this topic in the armies of other countries (photo):




      In these cases, the wire rod has been replaced with special guy wires, but wooden blocks are invariably present.

      And yet, it's a direct shocking and discouraging fact - NATO armored vehicles were transferred to Estonia, to the borders of the Russian Federation, on railway platforms owned by the First Freight Company LLC of the Russian Railways ...

        You know, from personal experience, even special stretch marks are a headache. How many of them were not invented for infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers, cars, there is no sense. And the railway has all its requirements. Well, there are no words about the platforms of this company, only expressions!

        on railway platforms belonging to the First Freight Company of the Russian Railways ...

        Why not? They'll be transported anyway. So at least our company will be paid money.
        Trump doesn't know that yet. If he finds out, he will raise a storm. Call him someone.

      with pads and wire

      Precisely, you need to weld the caterpillar to the braces from the 18 channel. Also to tie together tightly.

        You shouldn't be ironic. Spurs are more comfortable and faster. And secure the tank, and loosen it when unloading.

    "Polar Star" and "Sniper Frontier" - in Belarus

    Armed servicemen of foreign states on the territory of the Republic of Belarus in the current situation? Oh, I'm afraid AHLu will not allow these contests.

    Apparently, the biathlon will be held in the Chita region, the fasteners have already been removed. Or maybe the journalists stuck last year's photos.

    The Chinese are very persistent in achieving results ... in such competitions they are a strong rival ... games are generally an interesting way to test yourself ... to compare ... to understand the capabilities of equipment and weapons from the perspective of combat use ...

    the Chinese learn quickly ... I am sure that all subsequent biathlons will not be an easy walk for Russia ... before the Second World War they were "friends" with the Germans on different fields and airfields ...

    I would very much like to see the participation of teams from NATO countries on their own equipment. It would be possible to assess in real time their training and the technical capabilities of the machines, well, just a storehouse of information for analysis

      I hope our experts are also on the alert and carefully study the performances of the opponents.
      The fact that the Chinese are not asleep is understandable.

    Again, the same Type-96. And where is the much-advertised Type-99, why isn't it? Maybe our eastern "partners" are insured against loss? Will they say again that the Russians won unfairly?

    The history of fools teaches nothing. In 20-30, the German Wehrmacht was taught on the territory of the USSR, in 1941 the Wehrmacht stormed Moscow.
