Tankers of the Southern Military District will master scuba driving


"In preparation for tank crews for underwater driving classes, which will be held in August of this year, tankers will learn to act in the event of a war machine being flooded, oxygen starvation, poisonous substances and a blast wave," the press service reported. "Military Industrial Courier".

It is noted that the training of tankers will take place at the Prudboy training ground on the territory of the Volgograd region. The servicemen will have to overcome water obstacles with a width of more than 50 meters, moving along the bottom at a depth of five meters.

“In the course of the training, the tank crews will be equipped with individual emergency rescue equipment that isolates the IP-5 breathing apparatus, with which the soldier can spend about an hour under water,” the press service informs.

    But I’m still interested, with such a driving, does the driver see at least something? Or is it going strictly in a straight line blindly? And if the tank stops, silt settles, is it possible to observe fish through triplexes?

        When overcoming a water barrier, the driver, like the rest of the crew in triplexes do not see anything but turbidity. For movement under water, the driver uses the GPK-59 (gyro-hull) installed on the selected landmark on the other side.

    And I, in my naivety believed that they had already mastered it. I don’t understand in any way: either we are fed with only promises, or journalists are in a hurry to share what they learned. But, in general, the verbs in the future tense are already simply sore. The phrases of those in power like "... we will, we need to do, we need to look, etc." are already going off scale. Dear leaders, we mere mortals pay taxes and support you not for what you PROMISE, but for what you have ALREADY done!

    Complicated by the fact that adhesion to the ground under water is minimal. After all, even a multi-ton tank under water is a bubble filled with air.

      Absolutely right.
      But nevertheless, the gyro-mechanic of mechanics is the main device of the OEM.
      The main task of the mechanic is not to panic and EXACTLY keep the momentum.
      The drive control of the clutches should be the most SMOOTH, but it’s better not to touch them)))

      There is another tank control for underwater driving of combat vehicles - this is ... the head of the lesson.
      He is in constant communication with the crew. During normal movement of the vehicle under water, the officer broadcasts the following phrase:
      - "So-so".
      After a while, he repeats it.
      This makes it clear to the crew that the tank is moving smoothly and in the right direction. Thus, he removes a HUGE tension from the soldiers under water.
      It is very important. More than once it happened that the crew imagined a heading shift or the mechanic began to glitches about the failure of the gyro.)))

      There is such an expression:
      - Passed the Staff and the High-Tech Park means Tanker.
      wink

    Master, of course. But, new people come and they also need to be taught this very difficult driving.
