Orienteering competitions among the military personnel of the communications units of the army corps of the Baltic Fleet were held in the Kaliningrad region.

According to the rules of the competition, the participants, using a sports map and a compass, passed an unfamiliar route, planned on the ground and plotted on maps in the form of special checkpoints. The results were determined by the time spent by the participant to complete the entire route. The combined team of military signalmen of the command brigade took the first place.

Military orienteering is one of the new sports aimed at performing combat missions and increasing the achievements of individual training. Competitors are required not only to be in good physical health, cross-country skills, but also to have a deep knowledge of military topography.
