    The author tried as best he could to make his photo shoot interesting.
    And I remember 1981, Zapad-81. Then, for the first time, the tactical technique of loading an amphibious assault ship through the ramp and aft gate of the large landing craft in front was worked out. Loading standards were reduced by 51%. Loaded at night, with blue lights, observing blackout. And in the afternoon, under a hat of aerosol disguise. MDS did not regret ...
    All is well, but the airborne assault in the rear of the enemy must be supported by the over-the-horizon landing of the DShB units from the landing ships ... Because time is the key link in this. And the BTR-82A still needs to overcome the water barrier, engineering barriers, break down the defenses ... Landing by the "shore-to-shore" method is unlikely due to minefields, engineering barriers from the 5,0 m isobath and enemy opposition.
    Marines - good luck in BP!
