      Meaning? Athletes are good, but they are not particularly useful. They work according to their plan, taking a place in the staff list.

      The army does not really need a sport of high achievements. We need mass.

        But our Western friends do not think so. One of the conditions for admitting the USSR to the Olympic movement was the abolition of All-Union bayonet competitions. And massiveness is possible only if there is a significant number of instructors at least.

          I don’t care about "Western friends". We had one individual. I always disappeared at the school - fees, etc. The FP department passed artillery shooting and tactics for it. Then he came to our division. And absolutely also "commanded" a platoon.

          What is the meaning of such officers?

          The biggest thing that can and should be held is the primacy of the unit. True amateur sport. All higher rank - from the evil one

            You are talking about different things. The butt is a run a la "cowboy horse" with firing lines and orienteering.

    There were 5 sections in our military school, and an unwritten prerequisite was a lesson in the sports section. Therefore, physics was on a level, so I agree mass is a plus. It is from the masses that champions are born

      Sections are great. Sections should be in each part. And their visit by officers should be mandatory.
      Accordingly, it should be military-applied sports, and not badminton.

    Competitions raise the fighting and comradely spirit of our army - the thing is necessary only if it is not for show.

    In-in. At one time, I had a commander for half a year, whom we had never seen before (training camps, competitions, etc.) and this was in the border troops ... I suppose he is still celebrating on May 28. Well, as for "Western friends" - it's time to live with your own mind.
