MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the Nizhny Novgorod region, at the Mulino training ground, as part of the training of the rear services of a separate tank brigade of the Guards Tank Red Banner Army of the Western Military District, servicemen carried out a massive refueling of tanks on the march.
During refueling, more than 60 thousand liters of fuel were pumped from mobile tanks into the tanks of T-72B3 tanks. To organize such a refueling, about 15 units of tankers left the deployment area. The main task of the training was to work out a one-time refueling of armored vehicles on the march. The divisions of fuels and lubricants deployed about 30 hoses of automated fueling complexes ATZ-10 for parallel refueling.
Refueling one tank to a full tank took no more than 5 minutes, which made it possible to promptly continue the movement of armored vehicles on the march. In total, more than 100 units of military and special equipment from a separate tank brigade of the ZVO Guards Tank Army took part in the training.
