The second stage of the Tank Biathlon competition is taking place at two training grounds of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Primorsky and Khabarovsk regions. For the first time this year, the association will identify the best crews of T-80BV tanks. They compete at the Bikinsky training ground performing practical shooting from tank guns and machine guns. Crews hit targets imitating tanks, RPG and ATGM crews at a distance of 600 to 1800 meters.

In addition to live firing, servicemen compete in driving the T-80BV on a special track. Tankers pass the baton, overcoming a route with many obstacles, such as mine – explosive barriers, ford, barrow, slope, ditch and many others.

In total, about 150 military personnel and about 20 units of military equipment are participating in the competition.
