The first recruitment of servicemen from the district training center of the Western Military District (ZVO) under the new “Steel Hunter” combat training program was opened in the Nizhny Novgorod region.

To train tank and motorized rifle crews, a separate company has been formed to improve the level of combat training using the promising experience of the winners of the International Army Games “Tank Biathlon” and “Suvorov Onslaught”. In total, in the annual plan for training crews in 2021, six streams of crews from military units, formations and formations of the Western Military District.

The instructor team consists of eight participants and winners of the international stages of the competitions, who have developed a unique combat training program. The program is based on the experience gained by instructors during competitions with foreign crews, as well as modern indicators of combat training in driving, overcoming artificial and natural obstacles on T-72B3 tanks and BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles.

The main difference between the new combat training program lies in the comprehensive training of crews from the first days of training, while the standard program implies separate training of driver mechanics, gunner-operators and commanders of combat vehicles, followed by coordination in the composition of crews, platoons, companies and battalions.

The training stage of the first 18 cadets of the center will end in March with the passing of test tests for the complex passage of the route with obstacles (ford, escarp, barrow, maneuvering section, more than 10 in total), as well as for the organization of regular shooting from the armament complex of a tank and an infantry fighting vehicle, a technical device and the inspection of the machine.
