    It's strange somehow, I thought the shells are either "cumulative" (combat) or "practical" (blanks). And then "cumulative-practical" ... Tankmen-gunners, enlighten, please!

    No "sport" versions were promised this year. everyone will compete on the same technique with the exception of the Chinese (those with their own). Let's take a look at the training of our crews ..
