In the NATO tank contest, Germany is ahead of the USA (The Washington Post, USA)

180



Last week, six NATO nations met in a two-day Strong Europe Tank Challenge (Tank challenge of a strong Europe), in which the best crews participated, performing a series of exercises related to techniques and methods of conducting modern warfare.

These competitions, which ended on Thursday in German Grafenvera, were the first of their kind since 1991. Their goal was to build a "military partnership," as well as to demonstrate the capabilities of NATO countries to work together, the US Army said in a statement.

Germany won the first place at these competitions. In the second and third place were Denmark and Poland.

These contests, organized jointly by the American ground forces in Europe and the German Bundeswehr, became a reminder of the Cold War and the tacit admission that NATO needs well-trained non-nuclear forces in case of war with emboldened Russia.

“We need to continue combat training; time and money must be spent on training and education so that we have the best deterrent forces, ”Lieutenant-General Ben Hodges told the Stars and Stripes publication of the United States ground forces in Europe.

The Pentagon announced a fourfold increase in 2017 for the European Security Initiative and made it clear that the United States would soon introduce additional troops into the region on a rotational basis in order to deter possible Russian aggression.

“This international tank competition is an integral part of a series of events that will help in improving our skills,” Hodges added.

In general, seven tank platoons participated in the contest. Denmark, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Poland fielded one platoon, and the United States two. Each platoon had four tanks with crews of four. Germany took the gold on the Leopard 2A tanks, and the US ground forces, with their M1A2 Abrams, were not among the winners.


During the competition, tankers overcame an obstacle course with 13 different lines, competed in shooting and driving. The units received points for each line in an attempt to score the maximum number of 1 000 points.

These competitions can be the beginning of a new tradition for the United States and their European allies, but Russia has long been holding the so-called tank biathlon. At the Russian competitions, the participants show the ballet of armored vehicles, and these competitions are very popular among civilians.

Last summer, Russia defeated 16 from the rest of the participating countries during the third tank biathlon. True, not a single Western country participated in these contests.

        Here I am watching news from NATO ... and somehow I feel a little sorry for them ...
        not only did the airborne tanks give ... so now it is also ... what

        Airborne troops will present to the public a new 120-mm Zauralets artillery system in the near future, Commander of the Airborne Forces Colonel-General Vladimir Shamanov told RIA Novosti on Saturday.

        “In the near future, we will show the artillery system in the framework of the Zauralets development work. These are 120 millimeter weapons with extended firing ranges and other characteristics, ”said Shamanov.

        He clarified that the “Zauralets” is created on the basis of the BMD-4М and the Rakushka armored personnel carrier, which from last year began to enter into service with VDV.http: //military-industry.ru/artillery/4868

        Flying artillery ... well, let's say .. ag ... and this ...

        The world's first airborne anti-aircraft missile system is being created for the Russian Airborne Forces based on the BMD-4M combat vehicle, a source in the Russian Defense Ministry said.

        “Work is underway to create an airborne anti-aircraft missile system based on the BMD-4M airborne combat vehicle. The development project is called "The Fowler", TASS reports the source.

        He clarified that the complex is supposed to parachute parachute method. Http://military-industry.ru/air_defence/4876

        What a furious force will be concluded in the Airborne ...what

        For the sake of justice, it would not be bad to conduct a comparative analysis on which tanks, what indicators they achieved, the average travel time of the route, shooting indicators. In addition, a comparative analysis with the performance of our tank biathlon and the technical characteristics of the units used, based on the doctrine, presumably which tactics will adhere to.
        And to laugh at the teachings of potential opponents is not far-sighted, the Fritz are able to fight, I would not underestimate them, but then a whole bunch is going to.

        NATO members have already lost to Belarusians and Armenians not only in tank biathlon, but also in all types of military all-around. True, at that time the former were called the "Third Reich" and performed in an incomplete composition (without the USA and England), and the latter were part of the united Soviet team. wink

        They proved a simple truth: only Germans and Russians made good tanks.
        Abrams are designed more for defensive combat (you won’t shoot on the move), and not to compete with competitors with its weight in polygons. laughing ... Therefore, they do not want to embarrass themselves in competitions with our tanks. It is unlikely that they will ever come. But it would be great to drag the Germans or someone else on the Leopards (the same Poles). The entire male part of the country would disappear from TV sets - to miss such a famous hockey series of 72 years. Yes, there would be a wonderful part of it would "catch" from the male roar ("show this ... the second Stalingrad" or "For Moscow", etc.) and "one hundred grams for the shot down." hi

            As far as the construction war was concerned, everything was clear to us back in 1994, long before the Iraqi events (unless Kuwait was counted as such). And in Iraq, tanks were frankly outdated. A chariot is a specific thing and only for its battlefield and is poorly distributed (Singapore laughs), like the Challenger with the Leclerc, for example, with all due respect hi ... The confrontation is precisely between the T-72/90 and the Abrams, while the Leopards will be a support group in Europe, if anything. It is unlikely that Israel will think of getting into a mess in Europe, he will get his worries if something happens.

              You can certainly argue by claiming that the Iraqis had old-style BPS, etc. But it is a problem of Iraq and their tankers that they did not have modern means of surveillance and destruction on the T-72.
              In fact, yes, in a real war, the Abrams defeated the T-72.

                The Tigers defeated the T-34, and what do we conclude from this? Is the t-34 a bad tank or are they two different tanks? In fact, Abrams has never fought against T in the same conditions.

            Was it a real war? Complete superiority both in the air and on the ground of some, and the betrayal of generals and senior officers by others.
            In reality, only individual crews fought from the Iraqi side, or rather, tried to fight. And to beat tanks from the Abrams in storage or without crews - and that happened! - this, of course, is a feat and an indicator of the coolness of the Americans. bully
            Moreover, given the "excellent" attitude of the Arabs to technology. yes My lecturer at the institute in military specialties, who was an adviser in Syria and Egypt, and who fought on the S-75 - S-125 in Cuba and Vietnam characterized the Arabs as military experts compared with the Cubans and Vietnamese only abusive words. I do not think that their tankers are much better than the air defense officers and pilots!

            According to the results of the war in Iraq, there was only one direct tank battle, and judging by the silence of the Americans, its result is far from what we would like. In other cases, the equipment was destroyed by aircraft and helicopters. And as for the merkavas sharpened for fighting in the city, do not tell my slippers. Humanity has not yet come up with an invulnerable tank for urban battles. No wonder tankers say that fighting in the city is always a complete ass.

          Japan has never been considered a small country. The territory is quite commensurate with Great Britain or Germany. The population is not much smaller than the total population of the same Germany and Britain. In addition, it controls a fairly large marine area. And during World War II, Japan, in fact, occupied vast territories.

            Japan could only fight with the Asians no more. Not because they are bad warriors, but because they are critically dependent on supplies of TOTAL. For example, as soon as Britain ceded dominance on the oceans, her empire went into oblivion.

      My friend 13 years ago participated in joint tank exercises with the Americans in Israel.
      The tactics of conducting a tank battle of the Americans spoke very poorly. He said that it seemed that in America they had little idea of ​​how to use tanks in battle.

          Yes, it's funny to see such "sterile" conditions. There are no speakers at all.

          The Alliance is achieved both through planned training in the combat training system, and as a result of the preparation and conduct of competitions, the most important of which is the “Canadian Army Trophy” (Canadian Army Trophy).
          Tank competitions held since 1963 years on the initiative of the command of the ground forces of Canada. At the same time, a prize was established to award the winners - a silver model of the Centurion tank.
          During the competition for the “Canadian Army Prize”, the fire training of tank crews is checked. In preparation for them, among the drivers, competitions are held to replace the engines of tanks, the results of which are not included in the overall classification of the teams
          As for firing from tanks, teams compete for hit accuracy and rate of fire. The main goal is the destruction of targets from a cannon and a machine gun day and night from a standstill and in motion at distances from 800 to 2400 m in minimal time.
          The prize was raffled off in conditions of a gradual complication of the situation. Initially, firing is carried out from the place by single crews at targets whose distance is known. Then the crews in the units fired from a place and on the move at fixed and moving targets, appearing at different distances.
          Competitions were held every two years.
          In 1989, competitions were held in the period 9-23 of June in the Federal Republic of Germany on the basis of the Bergen-Hone training center (Hannover). Their organizers did their best to introduce elements of the real situation of the battlefield. If in the 1987, each platoon received the same number of targets in the same combination, in 1989, in different. At the last competitions night firing was held for the first time. Dimensions of targets installed at distances above 1500 m are reduced from 230X230 cm to 165X190 cm, and for shorter ones to 110X190 cm.
          In the 1989 competition of the year, the 21 tank platoon participated in the battle for the trophy. The team of the Northern Army Group was represented by ten platoons (two for each from 1 ak of Belgium and 1 in the Netherlands, three for each - 1 ak of Germany and 2 United States BTR). For the command of the Central Army Group, 11 platoons acted (three for each from 2 ak of Germany, 5 and 7 ak of the USA, two - 4 of the IBRM of Canada).
          In accordance with the conditions of the competition, tank crews as part of platoons fired from guns at 32 targets and machine guns at 80, which were lifting targets of tanks that appeared on 40 c, and human figures. The ammunition of each tank was 12 shells and 250 cartridges in the ratio of one tracer to three ordinary. In addition to the ammunition, four shells and 125 cartridges were issued, which could only be used with the permission of the judges.
          The competition included five stages. At the first, firing was carried out from a place from the cannon, first at two, and then at four targets located at different distances. At the second stage, the crews fired from machine guns at four targets that appeared 10 times, and from the cannon at two. The third stage - firing from a cannon at eight targets installed at the same range. The fourth stage included shooting on the move at three targets from the cannon and four 10 times appearing targets from the machine gun. At the fifth stage, the crews fired from a place from the gun, first five, then eight targets.

          Everything is normal there with conditions: both a machine gun, and WMD, and VMP, and engineering training, and individual fire crews.
          We went in a more "sporting" direction, there is less entertainment, but more application - as in our other competitions - even the same reconnaissance platoons.

    Germany won the first place at these competitions. In the second and third place were Denmark and Poland.


    Germany has the experience of the wars of the last century ... given the pedantry of the Germans, we can say that they will learn to fight in modern warfare.
    So far, however, the Germans do not have a suitable motivated guilty youth ... without a motivated soldier, any country will not have success in the war.

    But I suppose with such a development of events in Europe when the United States is steadily promoting its troops and NATO troops to our borders, we will again have to take BERLIN by storm.
    The threat of a clash with NATO troops increases in direct proportion to the accumulation of the combat potential of their troops at the western borders of RUSSIA.
    In fact, when NATO combat aircraft already have the opportunity to make a quick throw to ST.PETERSBURG and MOSCOW ... you will involuntarily think about it.
    We must not forget the lessons of 1941.

      According to sources in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation (Ministry of Defense of Russia) and the output of television reports, the inventor of this contest is personally the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Sergey Shoigu. [1] [2] Despite this, the idea of ​​competing tank crews has a much longer history. The essentially similar competitions for tankers of the NATO countries for the Canadian Army Trophy were held from 1963 to 1991 in West Germany. In the USSR, at the end of the seventies of the last century, at a firing range located in the Krasnodar Territory, firing from tanks on the "tank director" was called biathlon. Finally, in the community of amateur model radio-controlled tank models, competitions, also called “tank biathlon”, have been held since at least 2009 [3] [4

                No, the whole world is already accustomed to the fact that if the "exceptional" want what they try to achieve their goal, no matter how, honestly or not honest (often not honest, and even more often by force)! I have no doubt that if it is necessary to discredit Russia, WADA will find doping in penguins in Antarctica too! The United States will make them find by bribery, blackmail and outright pressure! There will be nothing to find, they will quickly declare doping some harmless drug (meldonium, aspirin whether, but at least a hematogen!)!

    Forgive me for my translation (translator). The Russian tank is currently the worst. Russia only war 45 lost 8,5 million people. Germany 2. Russian is always more than yelling than doing.

    It is ridiculous to watch praise the old T-72 (modernized T-90), in comparison with the Leopards, Abrams and others. Russian is the cheapest, therefore the most massive.

      In my opinion, such a biathlon should be produced in
      a neutral non-competing country.
      And participating countries should not be able to advance
      to study the range, route, obstacles, location of targets.

      This was the case during the "Greek tender". More than 30 types of test-competitions.
      All the "shoals" of all the tanks got out: Leo, Abrams, Challenger, T-80, Leclerc.

    Germany took gold on the Leopard 2A tanks, and the American ground forces with their M1A2 Abrams were not at all among the winners.


    A very indicative result, the Americans focus on the use of simulators when training personnel, and this is not the best practice. And the Abrams is not the best tank compared to the Leopard.

      Previously, in previous competitions, Americans
      once fired well, furnishing the Germans, especially in the night shooting.
      But they had worse with finding targets on the go, with overcoming obstacles.
      All in all, Leo-2 is indeed the best of the western tanks, although
      and has only very limited combat experience in Afghanistan.

    Such an idea. Real tank battle on radio-controlled samples. Of course, modeling on computers is good, but limited, after all, modeling. Let's say how the Yak-130 can be adjusted to the characteristics of different aircraft. Take as a basis one model of the tank, rebuild it for remote control, and adjust it to the desired characteristics. Armor will not work, of course, but can you try everything else? Crews are in virtual cockpits, and tanks are in a real battle?

Therefore, they do not want to embarrass themselves in competitions with our tanks. It is unlikely that they will ever come. But it would be great to drag the Germans or someone else on the Leopards (the same Poles). The entire male part of the country would disappear from TV sets - to miss such a famous hockey series of 72 years. Yes, there would be a wonderful part of it would "catch" from the male roar ("show this ... the second Stalingrad" or "For Moscow", etc.) and "one hundred grams for the shot down." hi

    I agree, let's be realistic, the weight of the Abrams tanks and the T-72,80,90 series differ significantly in weight category, as a result of which it is difficult to compare them in all respects. But with "Leopard" they are on the same level, the competitor is very strong, there is a video, though not new and not with the T-90. It hurts to "shapkozakidatelstvom" is also not worth it. The truth is that any competition shows weak points that are best covered in peacetime.

      Maybe I'm wrong, but in the video the T-72 is chasing Leopard 1, one of the latest modifications.

        Russian tanks also have laser rangefinders and ballistic computers. Didn't you know?

        At one time you had a training unit at one of the tank ranges, which on the M60 "tore to pieces" the newest Abrams.

      Dear, there are, of course, many hurray-patriots, of course, they will destroy the tank with a pitchfork, but the point is not in them, and not even in a single T-90 or Leopard, but in reconciliation, that is, using their strengths and weaknesses the enemy, that's damn it and we need competitions, tests, and only then analysis and elimination of shortcomings

    The Yankees always claim that they are the best, without showing evidence. Tried to prove, flow around. And the winners studied with us, though for a long time.

    As Forest Gump correctly said, "Whoever d / / cancer knows himself." And I can tell you: you can praise your super-technological equipment as much as you like, but the main thing in a battle is not equipment, but soldiers. What your equipment will cost in the case of using radio-electronic warfare, without GPS and on-board computers - NOTHING, because the overwhelming number of your OGZ and PGZ specialists cannot decide without a computer, not to mention the repair of electronic units in the field without involving breeders, because your education has long been /// shit and specialists have long turned into empty-headed "flip-flops" of toggle switches.
    Although I am not a tanker, but a rocket artilleryman, I was taught to prepare flight mission data, first of all, using the white side of a pack of Belomor Canal cigarettes and coal from red flame matches from memory, and only then on a computer. Now I also teach young people. And chhat we wanted for your equipment, it will still turn into a heap of metal, so let's see then HUIZHU!
