    At the training ground of the Southern Military District in the Volgograd Region, tankers began to prepare for the district tank biathlon competitions. The 12 best tank crews and 6 crews of infantry fighting vehicles take part in the professional competition. In total, about 20 units of military equipment are involved in the events.

    During the qualifying round, tank crews and combat crews carry out live firing with regular ammunition.

    During the races, military personnel make marches, overcome land and water obstacles, hit three different types of targets at a distance of 900 to 2 meters, each of which has a specific munition — a guided projectile, a standard projectile and ammunition of the Kord heavy machine gun.

    In the course of the competition, tankers will demonstrate not only marksmanship and overcoming obstacles, but they will also pass the standards for physical training, and will be tested to know the tactical and technical characteristics of their combat vehicles.

    For the first time, two tank tracks with a length of 6,1 and 3 kilometers were equipped at the combined-arms training ground, where tests of crews of tanks and infantry fighting vehicles will be simultaneously conducted.

    The third stage of the tank biathlon championship will last until mid-May. Winners will receive the right to represent the Southern Military District at the All-Army Competitions, which will be held at the Alabino training complex in the Moscow Region in June 2014, the press service of the Southern Military District reports.

      The plot of the program "Vesti. Volgograd" on April 25, 2014. At the Prudboy training ground, the military competed in biathlon on tanks. This, unique for Russia, is a new type of army competition between tank crews, during which the skills of driver mechanics and marksmanship are tested. The BMP crews are participating in this competition for the first time.

    I respect tankers, even somewhere I don’t envy much for the good, but it’s personal. Of course, competition between tank crews is a good thing, even the necessary one is advertising the army, etc. But there is such a question, but what about combat training? the principle of combat training-learns in conditions as close as possible to combat and acquire the skills that will be needed in the war. And here what? The finale in Alabino is generally a show of the purest water, obviously, propaganda, advertising, etc. But there’s another question there the crews are full-time or assemble from several, if not several, the principle of combat coordination is violated. Further, as we know, for all limits, including ammunition and fuel and lubricants. In this regard, the question is, what would prepare the best crew of the brigade , the districts clearly spend more ammunition and fuel and lubricants on their preparation, and from where it is taken more, if at the expense of other crews of the battalion, brigade it turns out to the detriment of the combat readiness of all other tank crews. If we assume that everything is approximately the same, then this Yes but not a show, but to put it mildly window dressing. In general, the fire minister loves these PR actions. And he is preparing for a war, the ghost of which, unfortunately, is approaching our country.
