29 May - Military Motorist Day

27

Often military motorists in Russia are considered only the driver's composition of the automobile divisions of military units. But not only they belong to this category.


This also includes those who are engaged in the maintenance and repair of vehicles for the army, aviation и fleet... They also include the civilian personnel of the autobaths and autobaths. These people, although they do not wear epaulettes, are also military motorists.


And it is also worth remembering that vehicles are in service with all types and types of troops without exception. Thus, military motorists can be not only those who had "butterflies" on their buttonholes. And then it becomes clear how accurate and correct this statement sounds:

At the landing: "Nobody but us!", And at the military motorists: "Where are you without us?"

Actually, the appearance of vehicles in the armies of the world has become a real revolution in military affairs, because the troops have become much more mobile. This radically changed the strategy of warfare.

The choice of the date for the professional holiday of Russian military motorists is due to the fact that on May 29, 1910, the last emperor of our state, Nicholas II, issued a decree establishing in St. Petersburg for the first time in stories our country of the First training automobile company. Its tasks included training driver mechanics for all units of the Russian Armed Forces. It was from this moment that the countdown began for the warrior-motorists of Russia.

Therefore, today they accept congratulations from relatives and friends, from colleagues, colleagues and command.

The editorial board of Voennoye Obozreniye congratulates everyone who serves, has served, or is going to serve in the automobile troops, as well as drivers, repairmen, mechanics servicing vehicles of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. We wish you, dear military motorists, good health and a peaceful sky over your head.

        The 131st is my favorite car from ATT. Whenever there was an opportunity, I put the driver off, and - myself, myself, myself! laughing Once, leaving the range, I did not fit into a turn and drove into a German IFA with a trailer, full of beer. There was a lot of stench, but the aroma of beer was worth it laughing Happy holiday to everyone! drinks

            No, sorry, 131 was more comfortable. And I ran a lot faster. Probably about equal in cross-country ability. However, what about the markers? laughing And the best car of the USSR Armed Forces was her soldier. drinks

                Incidentally, I have never met a ZIL-157 in the army. As a child (10 GvTD) I remember the ZIS-151 and the armored personnel carrier at its base, the GAZ-63, then the GAZ-66 and ZIL-130, 131 with the Urals came. So he served with them already before his dismissal.

      I support! I wish you health and good luck! And let's remember all the front-line drivers who could make repairs, and nag the enemy, and their cargo under fire, but deliver. There is someone to take an example from!

        - Something about the auto electrician, it is NECESSARY !!! so that an hour ago he started up)))))))))

    From the military driver's toast ...
    "Remember the driver -
    Even if you are killed
    Sit on the side of the road and turn off the engine. "
    Based on the events in Afghanistan and Chechnya.
