Drove a centimeter from the head: how Chinese soldiers are taught to trust armored vehicles

The Chinese media recently published footage of a military exercise in which a 40-ton armored vehicle drove over the soldiers lying on the ground, dangerously close to the soldiers' heads - literally a centimeter.


As explained in the Global Times, such maneuvers are designed to develop the confidence of soldiers in the mechanics of armored vehicles, if necessary - even put their lives on the line. At the beginning of the video, the officer asks the soldiers: "Do you trust your colleagues?" Shouting "yes" in response, the military lie down on the ground, while the mechanic takes a workplace in the car.

Apparently, the HQ-17 SAM launcher appears in the footage. This complex was shown publicly in 2015 and is a redesigned Chinese version of the Russian Tor-M1 system.

In a series published since September last year, the PLA showcases Tanks and other vehicles passing over soldiers as part of psychological training aimed at strengthening the soldiers' resolve.

Similar exercises are being held in other countries. In October 2020, the Finnish Jäger Brigade Jääkäriprikaati published a video showing a Leopard 2A4 tank driving over soldiers stationed in the snow. As indicated, the purpose of the exercise was to combat the fear of colliding with armored vehicles on the battlefield.

    Ndaaa ...
    Scary!
    From time immemorial, our infantry has been run in tanks with tanks, but the security measures were ALL different.
    As I assume, the Chinese (Buddhists in life) have a completely different attitude to life l / s. And the accident is not so unfortunate ...
    Moreover, there are no problems with conscription. (From the word completely!)

        The People's Liberation Army of China is a direct descendant of the Red Army.
        Founded on August 1, 1927 as a communist "Red Army" after the Nanchang Uprising, led by Mao Zedong

        During the call, the PLA conducts a RECEPTION, and not a collection of all who are caught. Queues and competition for recruiting stations. So, there is order with the mechanics.

          footage of military exercises, during which a 40-ton armored vehicle drove over the soldiers lying on the ground, dangerously close to the soldiers' heads - literally a centimeter.

          My first thought: "Flayers!"

          Immediately I remembered an accident that once happened before my eyes.
          A woman at a crossing with a traffic light was hit by a large truck at the last minute. The car did not touch her body at all, but the front wheel ran over her head. So the head with such a sound burst so that all the contents of the skull flew out from under the wheel outward by a meter.
          And the stressful shock of the driver himself is beyond words!

        I can trust the mechanic, but the tank sometimes jerks and it is impossible to predict.
        what for to play roulette? Moreover, every year in our army there are cases when someone was run over.

        Tank run-in took place ... And how! But just lies under the tank? What skills are they practicing? Unquestioning obedience?

            I remembered a famous film, of course it is a film, but the words are correct there:
            - have you seen anything warrior? .... die, but do ... he did.

            They ran in. Of course, not across the road, but along it. But damn, we were not lying on hard slabs, but on a dirt road with a decent track !!!!. And not in helmets, but in headsets. You lie in the middle of this track with a track and try to see how there, above those in front, the bottom of the tank goes high and whether nothing protrudes from there from the tank. An entire battalion lay on the road.
            Well, and how the tank passed, of course, they depicted throwing a conditional grenade into the engine room of the tank. Instead of a grenade, whoever had what. It seems like I got a piece of clay. Or a piece of coalesced sand. I don’t remember already.
            The second exercise was more interesting. The tank went past the ruins (artificially constructed), and from these ruins it was necessary to jump onto the tank, get to the observation slot and depict the closure of the observation slot. But not for long, because the mechanic was swearing a lot soldier

      Drove a centimeter from the head: how Chinese soldiers are taught to trust armored vehicles

      The title of the article categorically does not correspond to its real content, and the process of preparation described in it, because we are talking about the process of psychological preparation for psycho-emotional stability of drugs upon meeting "forehead"with the enemy's armored vehicles, and not about trusting his driver-mechanic, who himself experiences severe neuropsychic stress during training ...

      There is no mention of the sensations of the mechanic driver, thus "running into comrades". And obviously in vain ...
      There are probably a lot of sweats under the overalls, and there may be more gray hair yes

        I have vast experience in driving tanks and tracked armored vehicles, and therefore immediately thought about the psychological state of the mechanized drive. I would not want to be in the place of that fur.

    As a former mechanic driver Shilka, I will say that this is nonsense and window dressing. Okay, even the Finns, there the tank had a fair amount of space, but the Chinese self-propelled gun could easily suppress. Tracked vehicles are not controlled with pinpoint accuracy, this is not Formula 1 for you!

    No, rather, the Finns formulated it more correctly
    the purpose of the exercise was to combat the fear of colliding with armored vehicles on the battlefield
    Tank testing was and is being carried out here and is aimed primarily at the psychological training of the soldier.

      Now it is called "running in combat vehicles". It is understood that not necessarily with tanks, you can use any that is available. And for safety reasons, the trenches are concreted so that there are no accidents.

    The window dressing is stupid. The hooves of the fighters lie strictly at the junction of the slabs (whoever did not fit into the "size" - spread their hooves wider). laughing
    There was a joke at the school that “the pedestrian troops had 4 tank corps and that was all we had (there were 4 t-55s in the ruble). When running under the tank, I visited it 5 times, once from the side, once from above. That was the "Kama Sutra" (dust was shaken off and aboard the "turntable-eight", ran in the air).

    There is a video on the network (urban-type settlement Novoarkhangelsk in Ukraine) - the man is pretty
    famously turns right in the city on such a yellow shit - four
    healthy wheels, bucket in front, and the cab is deeply set between the axles.
    The girl walks along the zebra, passes her half and already reaches the far edge - this
    the monster, jumping out of the turn, pushes her with a bucket in the forearm, she falls under the bucket -
    but this tractor just gave the gas and drove off. The girl got up, packed her things ...
    and went on! The commentary says that the driver was found
    already at home and he says that because of the bucket he did not see anything. Girl
    fell in front between the front wheels - this whole thing (6 meters) drove over it
    and got up already when the rear passed. In short, the Chinese are resting (they were cooked,
    warned, etc.)

        Have you checked the girl's passport?
        In these places (on the river Sinyukha) Bulgarians and Serbs
        live compactly (fortress Novoarkhangelsk
        the extreme point of Ukraine during the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth,
        today it is the border of two artificially created
        Stalin of Kirovograd and Cherkasy regions
        after the assassination of Kirov, formerly the Kherson province of the Republic of Ingushetia,
        it's not like the Russian spirit, Ukrainian does not smell).

    Rather just for shooting and did. It can be seen that the orientation goes along the plates. All the soldiers lie kicking around the edge of the slab, the driver is also on the left line and orientates himself. Everything was measured and worked out in advance.

      "All the soldiers lie with their feet on the edge of the slab."
      the first four words were a complete phrase,
      albeit without a comma.

    This is not trust building. This is the calibration of all Chinese to one height. I do not envy lanky people.
