Servicemen of the pack and transport unit of the mountain motorized rifle unit of the Central Military District (CVD), stationed in the Republic of Tyva, have begun preparations for the Horse Marathon competition of the International Army Games-2021.

Servicemen train in throwing hand grenades, overcoming an obstacle course in the squad, firing regular weapons at targets, and practice the skills of packing. Tactical actions are practiced in mountainous and wooded areas.

In addition, the personnel of the pack and transport unit are practicing orientation in the terrain using a map and GPS devices.

The most trained servicemen of the pack-transport unit will be selected to participate in the Equestrian Marathon competition. The competition consists of two stages: a long distance march (distance horse march – 130 km) and a short (mixed relay race for a short distance – 45-50 km). The winning team of the competition is determined by summarizing the results shown by the team during the practical stages of the competition.
