“Over 250 military personnel from North and South Ossetia, Chechnya and Dagestan, as well as about 40 units, were involved in combat training exercises tanks T-90A and modernized T-72BM, ”the message said.

"In zero visibility conditions, the driver was guided by the instruments and had to drive the car along the bottom without shifting gears, stops and sharp turns," said the press service.

It is noted that “driving military equipment under water is one of the most difficult elements of combat training of tankers. The crew should take into account the peculiarities of the coastline, the bottom, the depth and speed of the current, moving with zero visibility on the instruments. ”

The exercise also worked out the actions of rescuers "during the evacuation of the crew from a conditionally submerged tank."

In addition, during training, "tankers were trained to move along the bottom with a breathing apparatus," in case you have to cling the cable to a towing vehicle to evacuate equipment to land.

      Soooo specialists, soooo arrows .... Especially in the tank biathlon you can see when they can’t hit the target. Even on the upgraded T72B3. Well, you can still recall the shame of the T80 in Greece .... or Iraq.
