Unfortunately, since 2009, military personnel of special forces units of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia serving in conscription have not been able to pass such tests during their service. Therefore, it was decided to provide such an opportunity to former servicemen and veterans of special forces and to organize full-fledged tests at the Vityaz Training Center.
Qualification tests consist of five stages.
The first stage includes a forced march on 10 km. with overcoming four water obstacles and rises to a height.
During the march, the candidates crawl over the terrain under intense enemy fire, periodically perform actions on the commands “Grenade” and “Flare”, perform various tumbling, push-ups, move in goose step, and so on.
Throughout the route, a group of subjects is accompanied by a team of instructors. Candidates make a forced march in camouflage clothing, equip 5 body armor with protection class, use 2 class safety helmets and equip Kalashnikov assault rifles.
Instructors monitor the actions of subjects on the march. Candidates lagging behind the main group for 50 and more are removed from the test. Mutual assistance is also evaluated. For example, when I almost got rid of a candidate who did not give his comrade a hand from the shore while overcoming a water barrier.
The oldest candidate is 47.
Although the exam and veteran, but conducted according to all the rules.
The so-called "Ebun-mountain".
After the march, the subjects had to overcome the second stage - a special obstacle course.
During all movements, the machine should be only the trunk up.
The special obstacle course is similar to the one that passes during a special triathlon, with the exception of a pair of elements.
During the overcoming of the SPP, explosions of VU and grenade explosions are simulated.
SPP includes the entrance to the bus, the ascent along the inclined board and the descent through the pipe, overcoming the Swedish shelf, overcoming the vertical maze, overcoming two sections, overcoming the destroyed staircase, overcoming the labyrinth in the building on the 1 floor, moving over the roofs.
The band is not overcome single, but in a group, so the subjects cover each other in the process.
After the SPP, the subjects perform a special shooting exercise in the 1 dash. The exercise is performed because of the cover, the position for firing at the option of the shooter.
After the shooting, the subjects have 10 minutes to prepare for the next stage - the verification of actions to assault a high-altitude object.
The exercise is to hit the target on the 3 floor with three shots and throw a grenade on the 2 floor.
The execution takes 30 seconds.
The final fifth stage of testing - a special physical training.
The stage consists of three disciplines: acrobatic exercises, the implementation of complexes of special exercises in hand-to-hand combat and training fights.
The fight is fought for 12 minutes without interruption.
Instructors sparring alternately with each of the three subjects, candidates sparring with each other.
An experienced candidate is considered to have passed the test, having been held in duels without a knockdown.
Subjects showing passivity or showing low volitional and technical qualities of combat are disqualified.
Of the 42 candidates admitted to testing, the 13 man deserved the right to wear the Krapovoy Beret.
And another employee received takes for personal courage and heroism. This form is provided for employees who are seriously injured and injured in a battle who do not allow to participate in qualification tests.
