29

In the Russian army, the Sayan March competition has already become a tradition, in which soldiers of mountain troops, special and reconnaissance units demonstrate their skills, conquering ridges and slopes. This year, Chinese soldiers decided to compete with them.


Go to "snow battles" in Russia

- comments in the government publication China Military on the dispatch of troops to the mountains, which is scheduled for April 2. The business trip will last until April 20 - the date of the end of the specified competition.

“Specialists” from the 78th Army Group of the PLA will compete with the Russian fighters. Within the framework of this unit, the 78th Special Operations Brigade operates, which is considered the elite of the Chinese troops, along with a number of other units.

The Sayan March is a team event. Participants must take part in two stages of overcoming the mountain range, covering a total of 50 kilometers. During the hike, the teams will have to complete eleven exercises, earning the points necessary to win the competition.

These competitions are aimed at checking the combat readiness of troops during the performance of tasks on the winter plateau.

      How to where?
      Clearly for amphibious operations in Alaska and Canada. smile
      In general, hiking in the mountains in winter is still extreme ... without special training and knowledge of the peculiarities of life in the mountains, it is difficult to survive.

        Look back, Edelweiss Division, do these words remind you of anything? They first trained in the Caucasus.

          Doesn't remind ... smile the Chinese Fuhrer is mute.
          And so we and NATO members had joint exercises ... they even made an intermediate base for logistics to Afghanistan in 2011 in Russia.

    Everything is as old as the world: "hard in exercises, easy in battle."
    The military is training, if a competitive option is added here, maybe this will be an additional incentive!

      So the journalists write:
      This year the competition they decided to make up the Chinese soldiers.

      Allies compete, opponents oppose, and mercenaries compete! Unfortunately, the level of journalism is low.

      If you speculate, what does the desire / need to pass such a tough, extreme test indicate ??? Sayan, these are not halam-balam, these are the MOUNTAINS !!!
      Who thinks what ???

    It is unlikely that anyone will be better than the Austrians and Swiss in this

      Do they take part in such competitions? Or do they all use the old merits?

        Good day. With past and present merits, they are all right. But ours are no worse. Only in percentage terms there are many more Austrians or, say, Poles going to the mountains than Russians.

    Competitions are held on the basis of the training center of the vertically aligned part of the Western Sayan Mountains.
    The tracks of the training center are used for the competition. They make a 2-3-day hike, work out the ascents and descents on the slopes using alpine skis and climbing crampons, orienteering and target reconnaissance, throwing grenades and shooting in the mountains, evacuating and transporting the injured in mountainous terrain.
    "Autonomous transition" is carried out under the supervision of a referee commission. In addition to the Chinese, earlier, it seems, the military from Tajikistan and some other country took part ...
