Slovenia will take part in tank biathlon

28

Slovenia confirmed its participation next year in Russian tank biathlon competitions. This was announced today by ITAR-TASS by a source in the Russian military department.


“The Slovenian side has confirmed to the Russian Ministry of Defense that it will participate in the Russian tank biathlon. Her team will perform at tanks M-84, which are in service with the Slovenian army, ”he said.

Tank M-84 - Yugoslav modernized version of the Soviet tank T-72M (export version of the T-72А). Produced in Yugoslavia from 1983 to 1991. In total, around 700 machines were produced. After the collapse of Yugoslavia, Slovenia received the 54 tank M-84, of which 19 machines are now used in the troops.

Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu invited NATO member Slovenia to take part in a tank biathlon in September this year during an official visit to this country.

In Russia, several stages of tank biathlon, including international, with the participation of crews from Armenia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, have passed. All competitions were held on domestic T-72B tanks, which are an upgraded version of T-72А.

Thus, Russia and Slovenia will participate in the international stage of tank biathlon in 2014 in two versions of the modernization of the T-72 - domestic and Yugoslav.

      Venue - World Theater of War.
      Participants of 100-150 countries.
      As a prize - a "barrel" of hydrocarbons. Or a "bucket" of drinking water.
      Who will be the first to start?

      An extremely controversial idea about "INTERNATIONAL".
      Take the biathlon habitual, sporty. How many things are standardized there. In terms of weapons. And by weight, and by the settings of rifles, and by ammunition. And how many years have come to this.
      How to bring different types of TANKS to common rules. Okay, Slovenes on the upgraded T-72. And who wants to participate in the Abrams, LeKlera, Challengers, Merkava, etc. (Chinese, Indians) ....

        So this will be just interesting. True, under such a horde of variegated equipment it will be necessary to redo the landfill. So that everyone has fun. Maybe ours will replace the T-72 with the T-90SM.

        the fact of the matter is that here you need to show not only the crew but also the equipment.

          Rather, on the contrary, we are more or less aware of the technique, thanks to the discovery and the Internet, but how the crews work is much more interesting. So to say, a test in combat without a battle-collision.

    The next stage will be the airsoft tank. It remains only to create a shot with a couple of liters of paint. )) Imagine this multi-colored training ground and tanks after such shootings!

    nevertheless, for sports balance it is necessary that everyone compete on identical tanks

      Then, for sporting balance, it would be necessary for crews to perform on all tanks previously not familiar with these vehicles. I don’t know how long it takes to learn how to drive a tank at an acceptable level, but ideally I think it is at least half a year.
      And isn’t it interesting for you to look at Leo 2 or Abrams in action?

    The Yugoslav tank M-84 in its characteristics was quite comparable to modern third-generation tanks of both the western production of M-1 Abrams, Leopard-2, AMX-40, and the Soviet T-80. The M-84 was created on the basis of the T-72, whose license Yugoslavia purchased, but unlike the T-72, it was equipped with a more modern FCS, a new engine and a better chassis, and in Iraq this tank showed itself quite well. JNA before the war, there were about four hundred of these tanks, but with the beginning of the war their production stopped, since the assembly was carried out at the factory in Slavonski Brod (Croatia)

    Slovenia on the M-84? And what kind of M-84 is there, the base version? As far as I know, only Serbs and Croats upgraded to an acceptable level of M-84, and if the Serbs got something close to the T-90, then the Croats got something very original but did not go into the series.

    And personally, it will be interesting for me to look at the Italians, their national MBT C1 Ariete is not that the most famous tank in the world.

      This is just a "local" variation of the Leopard. Maybe only according to the MSA there are features and the appearance is a bit different ...
