"Army Games". Masters ABT. Part 2. The trick versus professionalism

23



Tanks - This, of course, is great. It’s like bees roughly. Strength, in a word. But the tanks themselves, without the support of supply parts, can do very little. They need to be refueled, repaired, and ammunition delivered. So the work of a military driver is very necessary and complicated. Especially in combat conditions, there is no armor ...

Because with great interest, I watched the competition drivers. And here, at the competitions, he witnessed the struggle of a certain cunning against professionalism and preparation. This is a contest for the deployment of a field workshop. It seems to be simple: put up a tent for work, connect electricity and air, lay out tools and other technical equipment.

But I will go in order.











Pay your attention, dear readers, to the cars of the participants. The Russians and Belarusians used those that really stand in service with the armies of our countries. Old proven "Urals". With airtight and even lightly armored bodies, in which there is a boost of air to overcome the infected areas and other bells and whistles.

And the Chinese car was created literally for the 2 of the month specifically for these competitions. More on some kind of car shop like, to be honest. And, unlike ours, inside there is no place for people. Everything is occupied by shelving for containers. Plus, of course, we are not talking about any use of this car in extreme conditions like cold weather or pollution. But - very quickly you can pull out and expand. What, in fact, the Chinese and demonstrated.

I absolutely do not want to say that the PRC soldiers relied on freebies. Not. They worked like animals, with such fighting cries that involuntarily recalled films about Shaolin. Worked very well.

True, the judges were outraged by clues from fans from the team mates. About how the rivals are doing. Shouted them in the radio. I do not know how the case ended, but in the end the judge removed the “Chinese fans” from the field.


Here he is, the main judge of the competition major Tuzhikov. You can not argue with him ...







Here is the Chinese mobile auto repair shop. Our professionals at the test site said unequivocally - not a combat thing. But - such a kind of rival fell out.


The first part of the competition, disassembly and installation, was left to the Chinese.


Next was the verification of the correctness and completeness of the installation, the teams got a short break.


I heard with my ears how our commander set up our team to win. Of course, I would not agree with most of the wording, it’s impossible to say it out loud in public, but if you need to win ... then you probably can.













It really was a battle. The Chinese no longer issued battle cries, ours simply growled. But the stands began to shout when they realized that we were ahead. Technique and sequence of disassembly and assembly still very different teams. I will say that I have not heard such a shout "Russia" at any other stage. Here, apparently, it was in principle.

And we have furnished the Chinese comrades. Military cunning (and so it would be possible to designate an exhibition vehicle of the Chinese army) is good, but training plus fighting spirit is better.

"That's the same ... otherwise all the nerves are worn out," said a representative of one of our newspapers who worked at this competition. And I agreed with him.

And in parallel there were racing competitions.




"Goats" goat, as expected.




This is not a departure, it is a braking before turning to 180 degrees.



It was surprising, by the way, that at such mad speeds our trucks are not at all "jumping". But the speeds were not lower than in any rally-cross.

Belarusian drivers looked very decent.



But how to sigat a hefty truck is necessary, showed the Chinese. Honestly, my colleagues and I were waiting for this moment. And - waited. The healthiest triaxial machine jumped so that we applauded afterwards. For a good shot you can.

    And the Chinese car was created in just 2 months specifically for these competitions. More like some kind of car shop, to be honest. And, unlike ours, inside there is no place for people. Everything is occupied by container racks.

    The Chinese have created a large organizer on wheels smile

    I recalled that even under the Soviet regime, especially in the 80s, it was not always possible to ensure a collision of drivers at the combat training course in the combat and combat categories. What about now? Probably all is well? Or really good?

    I did not understand something, but do the Chinese have normal combat vehicles for these goals ????
    Or did they know about this class of vehicles for 2 a month before the competition ??
    Or is it pure cheating ???

      And this makes some sense. If disassembly speed is important, why not make external boxes or niches for a tent for example ... anyway, it is not needed inside. It is possible that the Chinese have a fighting vehicle, they have a simple different concept of its application.

    The "professionals" are immediately visible. All these jumps are a golimy show-off for the audience, ending with a breakdown of bridges, a torn clutch and a bent frame. And time is wasted on landing and subsequent acceleration.

    It is interesting what fighters in the back should feel during and after the jump ... (I think weightlessness first, then overload, followed by injuries of various severity).

        if only if mushrooms had grown in your mouth ... you first look at the picture of the body, and then get smart about the five-point ones. There, at best, folding seats with paralon, or even just a tree and without any belts at all.

    Well done guys, although they fought at the training ground! and about jumps - in life, of course, we carefully handle our cars and try to drive according to the rules, but these are exercises (apparently close to military ones) and everything is different in the war, so now we have to check the technique in hard competitions and then refine so that the frames do not bend and the bridges do not come off. in war there will be no right to correct mistakes.

    real combat training and exercises (which might not be so spectacular for TV) are replaced by a surrogate for army games, biathlon, air darts ... other mutations ... people hawala, greetings from Kiselev and Shoigu.

        if the meaning of the teachings is to ditch the car? I doubt .... but to overcome the ford, the tank has a special air intake .... and in combat, such diving is an engine hydraulic shock and the tank exits the battle .... about stupid driving with a coup .... you can generally be silent. ... continue to enjoy the magnificent show (without irony) but this has nothing to do with combat training! .... I will also offer one discipline for TB .... shooting from a gun in a jump (like jumping in Tagil ... only there idle into the sky and here is a blank ... on a moving target .... it is urgently necessary! in battle without this in any way!
        Yes, under what kind of potent potion D. Guberniev comments on this show? ... I want this.

          Is this about the shifter? Nothing happened to him .. put on his feet, start up and go, as cute. Here is an anti-aircraft machine gun, apparently - bye-bye. And that is not the fact that it is not repairable.

          But now this frame will be watched for a long time all mechs of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. Forced. In order to know how not to do.

          There is. OPVT called. Only ford, as at the tankodrome (and this is the Tamani, Alabino tankodrome) - the car must overcome without ATV. And, in general, it usually does.

          Not sure if this is technically possible. And the fact that nafig is not necessary is for sure. Tank, he should not jump at all.

          And all this "show" is watched by both potential enemies and our future warriors .. Useful idea, useful yes

          PS: And here I am - I don’t look, it's just not interesting. Something like this.

            well, if all this is viewed as a remake of the pre-war movie "If tomorrow is war" ... maybe it will pull to raise patriotism, but for training I think the effect is zero .... let's remember 1941, and how veterans later spoke about this film (in obscene expressions) and many post-war films have undergone veteran review.

            Exactly. Show us, potential enemies and future soldiers show.
            It affects us and possibly even future warriors. But on potential enemies - not sure. They then understand that this is just a show and do not have to be delighted, as well as in fear, from our show.

    Gentlemen, less pathos. This is not an advertising presentation of the latest military equipment. This is primarily a show. And the Chinese with their chest of drawers on wheels and the jumping of heavy trucks realized this a little earlier. The Angolans are also good at T - 72. In general, everything is in the subject. PR Department of the Russian Army for the creativity of the idea of ​​"Army Games" - a prize and gratitude with the entry.

    Where are our Urals slightly armored? foil on top of plywood on a kung? or the thickness of the steel of the cabin, due to the backwardness of technology, remained at the level of the 60s?
    PS Before the Army, I also thought that the kungs of workshops, messengers, etc. armored laughing

    and what’s mine, normal competitions - at least here, unlike military exercises, where they just go tactical training, the soldiers show their applied knowledge who knows what and how and it will be interesting and useful for all participants to see and study the experience of rivals - the rivals always have something to learn .
    I would say that the war games Aviadarts Tank biathlon, etc., etc. improve the real training of warriors, that is, the lower level of the Armed Forces - this is the quality that we and our friends need to raise. In tactical terms, when the exercises are going on there is much more than a mere demonstration of strength and presence than the real achievements of specific units and companies. Let's just say that combat exercises are competitions for senior officers and army games are competitions for soldiers.
