Tank biathlon became fashionable

Tank biathlon became fashionable



Our tankers proved this year that they are not afraid of dirt or blood ...

Who would have thought that the idea of ​​Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu was "measured tanks»In this sports biathlon will become so popular. And if last year only four countries ventured to enter the tank biathlon route near Moscow: Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus and Armenia, then this year along with army men from neighboring countries at the Alabino training ground they will cross tank guns abroad: Americans, French, Germans, Italians, Arabs, Israelis ... Twenty countries, at least, expressed a desire to show what modern tanks and crews are capable of. Hot battle in August is coming ...

Therefore, our tank crews began to prepare for this world event a long time ago. From January, on the training grounds of the Regional Commands "East" and "West" under the control of the main tank driver of the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Kazakhstan Major General Amir Khalikov, the contract servicemen honed their skills despite the severe cold and snowfall. They even managed to carry out their own championship in Ayagoz on the basis of a tank brigade and determine the best ones in their specialty. But, before telling about this April contest, let me remind you about the most exciting moments of that August battle near Moscow.

"BLUE" LOST "RED" ONLY A FEW SECONDS

What happened in August last year at the Alabino training ground and in what terrible tension our tank crew held the entire leadership of the Russian army led by Sergei Shoigu, said the well-known sports commentator Dmitry Guberniev on the Russia channel. An article in the "Megapolis" entitled "Tankers are not afraid of dirt" also declassified some details, in particular, told about how Senior Lieutenant Janat Kuanyshev broke his arm and was forced to go the distance. A sergeant of contract service Miras Nurko, who replaced the officer in the commander’s place with his crew (gunner senior sergeant Aydin Kalioldin, driver mechanic Marat Tusupov), is practically impossible. In the difficult distance of tank biathlon, they, in spite of everything, managed not only to overtake the Belarusians and Armenians, but also to get very close to the championship owners, the Russians.

“52 seconds then we lost to the leader of the competition,” recalls Major General Amir Khalikov. - During the competitions, the crews had to cover a distance of 20 kilometers. The result, as in the ski biathlon, was formed on the basis of the total time passed and the goals hit. Missed the target - go to the penalty loop. The first place was taken by the Russian tank crew with the result 23 min. 44 seconds The second place of honor is 24 min. 36 seconds Third with the result 25 min. 25 seconds Belarusians finished. Armenians became the fourth. They took the passage of the entire distance 29 min. 48 seconds

Then, near Moscow, undoubtedly, our mechanic-driver Marat Tusupov, whom sports commentator Dmitry Guberniyev baptized as the “Kazakhstan Schumacher” and “tear-head”, became the hero of the day, the favorite of the public. From our tank, our driver mechanic literally squeezed all the juice, showing the best intermediate time. When he overcame a “minefield” at a speed of about one hundred kilometers per hour, the generals on the tower applauded him standing, and Sergei Shoigu, after the end of the competition, even tried to lure the contract soldier he liked into the Russian army, but it was not there. Today the corporal Marat Tusupov is the best in the specialty of the scale of the entire Commonwealth of Independent States! How not to be proud of it?

The Kazakhstan tank biathlon championship has just ended in the Ayagoz garrison at the Mailino range. The battle and under Ayagoz was hot. 12 of the best tank crews from the 4 teams of the Regional Commands “East”, “West”, “South” and the Airborne Troops fought for the first place and the opportunity to represent Kazakhstan at international competitions near Moscow.

“Tank biathlon is a new type of military field sporting competition between tank crews, which includes combat training conducted according to the rules of classic biathlon,” commented on the combat training of the Colonel Yuri Askarov, commander of combat training, Vostok. - We held competitions in two days in two stages: “sport” and “individual race”. The first stage consisted of four types of exercises, with the first three exercises performed by one of the crew members by drawing lots, the last exercise, the obstacle course, was carried out as part of the crew, which was held on a specially prepared sports track. The distance is a 3 circle over a kilometer 4. Total 12 km over rough terrain with obstacles equipped on it: barrage and maneuvering section, anti-tank ditch with passage, ford, two burial mounds, track bridge model, two slopes with a passage between the pillars, escarpment, comb, track pass in the mine explosive barrier. ..

For violation of the rules and any mistakes, the crew was immediately fined, for an error in shooting - an extra lap. With the passage of the first round, the shooting was carried out from a twin PKT machine gun at ranges from 600 to 800 meters. With the passage of the second round - from the NSVT anti-aircraft machine gun. Before the finish - from a tank cannon with regular artillery shots on the move.

“All crews competed on T-72B tanks, which are now in service with all tank divisions of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Kazakhstan,” continues Yuri Askarov. - Tankers did not have to relearn. But what kind of tank will fall on this or that team, determined the lot. We, as the hosts of the championship, of course, prepared all the equipment and material base, but we could not choose the best tanks for ourselves. The conditions for all crews were equal, and refereeing was as transparent as possible.

- Well, for their own guys, the victorious recipe was probably prepared anyway. And run the track before others, and the target "on the tooth" tried.

- The recipe for all winners is simple: you need to run fast, drive skillfully, shoot straight. In short - it is necessary to be friends with the head. Constantly thinking about how and what to do in battle, their comrades do not let down. In the team work. The crew of three people must act as one, as a single organism.

- You said in battle, but this is a simple biathlon, where there are more elements of the show, a spectacle, than a real combat work.

- Competitions were so organized that the situation was really close to combat. Crews were limited in time, and penalties were awarded for errors. Excitement and stress were experienced by all. So, it was necessary to be able to control their emotions. Fear of suppress and excitement. The strongest wins! Actions taking place in competitions can be useful on the battlefield. In addition, it gives us the opportunity to clearly see and understand what the level of preparedness of our tankers is now.

According to Colonel Askarov, whatever the challenging biathlon track, it still remains for the tank crews of all brigades to be an “old acquaintance”, with whom they have long been “able to properly handle” in order to achieve the desired result.

“A lot depends on the individual actions of the commander of the crew, the driver and the gunner operator as a whole and their well-coordinated work,” said Lieutenant Colonel Kayran, deputy commander of the military unit 10810 for educational and social-legal work. - Every detail of their joint actions is important: time to search for targets, prepare the tank for firing, fire to kill. It is important for the gunner not to miss the mark, but for the driver-mechanic to lead the tank through jewelry through all obstacles without gaining penalty points.

- How did masterful Marat Tusupov do it near Moscow?

- Exactly. By the way, this crew was the leader in these competitions, but the guys didn’t have enough for the victory.

According to the general results, the crew of senior lieutenant Sagi Batyrkhanov of the 1 military unit of the West, West, and 25744, the crew of Lieutenant Kuandyk Kenzhegulov of the military unit, 2, of the East military crew and 10810, took the lead Parakhata Tynyshtybaeva a / h 3. Winners and prize-winners of the competition were awarded with medals, diplomas and valuable gifts. The commander of the tank battalion of the Aktau tank brigade, Major Adil Tursunkulov, whose subordinates achieved tangible success both in biathlon and in the service as a whole, had the opportunity to study at the academy. Captain Marat Omarov took his place. Now he is responsible for the training of tank crews of the ESC "Zapad".

The chief of the General Staff, Colonel-General Saken Zhasuzakov, presented the best tank crew with a dummy of a golden T-72B tank and, in Ayagoz, approved the list of crews to defend the honor of the Armed Forces of Kazakhstan at international competitions near Moscow.

“I am sure that the honest and uncompromising struggle of the crews increased the prestige of the tank forces and attracted a lot of attention from those who watched the tank biathlon,” said First Deputy Minister of Defense Colonel-General Zhasuzakov at the closing ceremony of the championship. - I hope that this will give a new round in the combat training of tankers, and in the fact that those who want to serve in the tank forces will now become much more.

    NATO members are now likely to refuse. It's a shame. I'd love to see it. However, they would also hardly agree to "fight" on the T-72. So the best is against the best. T-90, Merkava, Leopard and Abrams (where without it). It would be interesting.

    I don’t know the rules of participation in a tank biathlon, if on my tanks, this is one thing, if on the ones provided by the organizers, another. Americans and other guests will not take their tanks to Russia, this is fraught with secrets, although their tank secrets have long been known. to participate in our tanks, they will manage on the first lap, they were frightened of the ssserirs.

      Why not? 3-4 tanks will be brought easily. Yes, and especially no secrets will be revealed - maintenance will be carried out by their forces. But ours will have to be taught, not fair though.
      Nevertheless, it would be interesting to see how they will be chased. Especially the USA and the Germans.

    Tanks are the most beautiful cars. Thought about tank biathlon, dreamed for a long time. I think it’s also possible to carry out tank battles, according to the rule, everything is against everyone. It would be interesting to load the guns naturally with containers of paint. I don’t know if it’s feasible? But the crew needs to be given time to prepare the tank, to fit it for themselves. In NATO, tanker competitions have been held for quite some time. I read about these competitions in the Star in the year probably 82-83. It was written that the Germans put the tank knowingly old, (it was the name of the tank, now I don’t remember it) Against the latest tanks in America, England. But the Germans picked up and trained their crew very well. As a result, the Germans took second place. The article that crew training is a very important thing. About the participation of foreigners, to be honest I don’t know if this is possible. If they bring it, it is most likely a very outdated equipment. Only the T-80 can compete with speed abrams. The rest of our tanks are much inferior in speed to the T-80.

    Then near Moscow, undoubtedly, the hero of the day, the favorite of the public was our driver-mechanic Marat Tusupov, whom sports commentator Dmitry Guberniev christened “the Kazakhstan Schumacher” and “rip off the head”
    . At the biathlon our most experienced tanker was not yet.
    88-year-old veteran tanker from Karaganda Izmail Galiulin, with the permission of the leadership of the regional command "Astana", fired from a modern T-72B battle tank. Moreover, the tanker, who has not taken up the levers of the tank for more than 60 years, successfully completed the task, destroying the conditional enemy, reports the portal Remarka.kz.


    During World War II, Galiulin fought on the legendary T-34. He fought in the fields of Europe, the war ended for him near Berlin. He was hit several times, but savvy and military professionalism always saved his life.


    Now the army is armed with modern combat vehicles, with incomparably heavier armor, weapons and technical equipment. However, for a veteran tanker, the development of new equipment was not difficult. Taking the place of the driver, he famously rushed along the tank training ground.

    It was interesting to read ...
    Thanks to the author for this interview.

    By the way, Kazakh mechanics are excellent masters in their mass.
    Hardworking and persistent. They take the experience slowly, but confidently.
    Only the best memories.

    And here is the dream of the mechanics - TVN-10 ...
    Three-channel device: optical, thermal imaging and low-level television. The driver on the gas discharge display panel can receive a combined image of the surrounding area.

    Its introduction into the troops can (FINALLY !!!) change the landing of a mech while driving a car.
    The fact is that master driving is only possible if constantly you rest your forehead over the prism, and such a bent "forward" position of the body with a constantly tense back gives you extreme fatigue ...
    After 100 km. on the march, in the "fighting" position, the mechana is usually carried on the hands, in reality it is "carried out". Therefore, everyone tries to drive as much as possible "in a marching way", or the commander from time to time changes the mechanic on the march ...

    Here he is, handsome:

      Under the USSR, in armored units, they were often taken by Kazakh mechanic drivers. Since in rural areas young people went to be trained as tractor drivers and combine harvesters (Tselina). And when they were drafted into the army, they were used for their intended purpose. In my father’s aul, all combine harvesters and tractor drivers served in armored units. ALL. hi
