"They are going to the" snow battles "in Russia": Chinese fighters from the elite unit will take part in the "Sayan March"

31

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.

          Extremely useful teachings. Competition between the "best and the best" is only beneficial.

          So the event is joint ... Yasen stump will storm the White House like in Hollywood action films.
          smile Well, if, without jokes, this business is just for the special forces ... An ordinary motorized rifleman will not last long there.

            No need to idealize .... In winter, in the mountains, as well as at other times of the year, it is safe. If you know and think with your head.
            In addition to the Indians, the yellows have a direction in the direction of our Tajiks.

              for a long time, in addition, destructive ultraviolet light, bright sun, white snow on which you cannot look for a long time without glasses ... I'm not talking about sudden changes in the mood of the weather ... living conditions for a city dweller are extremely unpleasant. hi

                Is there thin air somewhere in the Sayan Mountains? The soldiers will go hunting.

    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 ???

        well, what is there to think, but mountains and a real windbreak taiga (literally 140-150 km., from civilization and the Chinese special forces will be lost so that the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations will not find ... laughing wink ), with bears and other predators, he lived himself from the foothills of the Eastern Sayan Mountains - 82 km. if on the highway, almost 40 years of his life .., the last time was in the summer of 2018, a wild mountain tourist, the places are familiar, after all, relatives for the soul of a Siberian !!!

          I had a chance to run around the mountains of Kamchatka in my youth ... it still takes my breath away ... one of the best moments in my life ... you climb to a height of 1 km or two ... the whole world is under your feet ... wonderful moments ...
          Oh, I only began to appreciate all this with age.

          The Tien Shan is closer to me, relatives .... beautiful, harsh places.
          I'm interested in something else, why should the military have mountain training?
          Is it just a method of upbringing, preparing the military for super difficulties, for general development, or is there some other practical meaning in all this?
          If you look at the armies of "developed" countries, there is a process of automation, mechanization, and so on, so on ... they seem to have a motto "smart will not go uphill, smart ... will send a drone there"!

            These are the "smart" ones who do not walk uphill and over the mountains of war and lose. If electro-magnetic impulses are applied over the Earth, all electronics are burned out, then who and what will fight? Basically, such detachments, and the infantry. Steam locomotives and horse-drawn towed guns will remain from technology. True, all the horses have already been allowed for the sausage.

              They, as it were, do not climb into the mountains ... because there they will be rolled out like ... in a pancake, in short. On plains, on beaches and other smooth places ... that's understandable.
              It is also clear that with the help of fur. devices, at this stage of the development of such technology, there will not be much sense from it ... we can sometime later.

              they don’t think about this even in a dream ... however, there is no such weapon, for now, so as to burn everything out and at once ... this is also from the category, when not later ...

            What doesn't kill makes us stronger. I consider the Turkestan ridge to be the southern branch of the Tien Shan. In two gorges there are perhaps the most interesting mountains in the former Soviet Union. On Lenin, I often see Russians with a good bearing.

              Eh, where is our youth ... we had to be everywhere that was associated with a peaceful sky over the country! Now they are walking, watching, working the same as us, when that! Tough guys, united by one goal.
              The mountains are wonderful ... and only the MOUNTAINS can be better than the mountains!

        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 ...
