At the training grounds of the association, competitions will be held among engineering and sapper divisions, which will demonstrate their skills in working on a heavy mechanized bridge TMM-3, an engineering machine for clearing IMR-2, a machine for excavating pits MDK-3, track pavers BAT-2.

During the competition, servicemen will have to act as a traffic support detachment (OOD) for the unhindered advance of tank and motorized rifle units, carrying out engineering reconnaissance of the specified route for the presence of explosive objects and mine-explosive barriers.
