Today, at the Borodinovsky training ground in the Kamensk-Shakhtinsky district of the Rostov region, the opening of the district stage of the competitions of the International Army Games “ARMI-2021” of military engineers of the Southern Military District (YuVO) “Safe Route” and “Engineering Formula” took place.

About 200 servicemen take part in the Safe Route in four teams, six teams are involved in the Engineering Formula competition, including the team of the 11th Separate Guards Engineering Brigade, the winner of the Safe Route international competition for the last three years.

Special equipment is involved in the competition, including: heavy mechanized bridge TMM-3, engineering clearing vehicles IMR-2, machines for excavating pits MDK-3, track paving BAT-2 and floating conveyors PTS-2.

In the “Safe Route” competition, military engineers act as a traffic support squad (OOD) for the unimpeded advancement of tank units.

On an equipped route about 2 km long of the OOD, it is necessary to ensure the passage of the convoy through such obstacles as a ford 1 m deep, a section of a remotely installed minefield, an anti-tank ditch 6 m wide, a destroyed section of the path 50 m long and a blockage of burning logs.

The “Engineering Formula” competition program includes a relay race, where each team will take part in crews to perform engineering support tasks. The relay race is carried out in stages, its length is 4000 m, and the width of the carriageway is 16 m.

On each unit of engineering equipment, the crews must overcome one lap of the track with a stop at the “pit stop”, where the servicemen will perform a special task for the given model of equipment.

The competition will end on March 19. The crews of the teams that showed the best result will go to the all-army stage of the competitions, where they will fight for the opportunity to represent the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation at ARMI-2021.
