Preparation of the 4-th separate tank brigade for the annual inspection

On the eve of the Day of the Ground Forces, which took place on October 1 2011, I was invited to the 4-th separate tank brigade.
In connection with the reform of the Armed Forces of Russia and the transition to the new look of the 4, a separate tank brigade was formed on the basis of units of the legendary 4 Guards Kantemirovskaya Order of Lenin of the Red Banner Tank Division. Currently, the team is deployed in Naro-Fominsk.
During my visit, the team was preparing to pass the final annual inspection by the commission of the Western Military District. The check itself is complex and consists of an assessment of physical, fire, combat and other types of brigade personnel training from a commander to military servicemen, as well as an assessment of the actions of both individual subunits and the entire brigade under the conditions of receipt of relevant orders and command orders.

The actual preparation for the inspection on the day of my arrival consisted in working out the actions of the crews of tanks and infantry fighting vehicles on firing at targets and passing various obstacles at the tankodrome. Photos in the report do not please with a special variety. But for fans of tanks, kneading dirt and driving on the road, it will be very interesting.


Crews get the task.

During my visit, the T-80U 3 Tank Battalion and the BPM-2 tanks of the brigade of the infantry brigade worked at the test site.
