A competition for the best junior specialist (best unit) of the fuel and lubricants service of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation has started in the Saratov region. Competitions are held in the framework of the All-Army Competition “Army Reserve – 2021”.

The final stage of the competition is held at the Krasnoye Pole training complex of the Volsk Military Institute of Material Support, where more than 180 servicemen from all military districts, fleets, branches and branches of the armed forces compete in the following nominations: army relay race, fire training, military sports relay race and fulfillment of individual standards …

During the competition, the participants temporarily deploy vehicles for refueling and transporting fuel AT3-12-10-63501, ATs-14-63501, prepare the MNUG-80 motor pump unit and the main element of the PNU 100 / 200M pumping station for pumping fuel. The field main pipeline PMTP 150×150 with a length of 200 meters is being deployed.

The competition is held under the guidance of Colonel Vladimir Demirov, Head of the Rocket Fuel and Fuel Directorate of the Resource Support Department of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

The winners of the competition for the best division of the fuel and lubricants service of the RF Armed Forces will be awarded with departmental insignia and valuable gifts.

At present, in the Russian Armed Forces, units and subunits of the constant readiness fuel service are able to provide troops (forces) with the necessary fuel in a short time. In particular, a separate pipeline battalion within five days can deploy a line of a field main pipeline with a length of 150 km and supply up to 1000 tons of fuel per day. Pipeline military units and subunits are capable of providing troops (forces) with fuel by connecting (inserting) into the main oil product pipelines.

The fuel service is always at the forefront of providing troops and forces during various exercises and maneuvers. For example, during the march, only one ATZ-12-10 tanker based on the KamAZ vehicle, the most unique of its kind and nicknamed “octopus”, is able to refuel an entire tank company to full tanks in just 10 minutes!
