Tankers of the Southern Military District (YuVO), stationed in the Volgograd Region, have begun fire training classes on the track of the Tank Biathlon competition.

The servicemen are practicing complex exercises with a standard projectile firing. When passing obstacles, the crew hits various targets such as “tank”, “self-propelled gun”, “helicopter”. Shooting is carried out both from the spot and on the move at a distance of 300 m to 3 thousand m.

Tankers overcome the route about 7 km long with many obstacles, such as escarp, slope, mound, water obstacle, passage through a minefield, snake, etc.

The implementation of the elements of “Tank Biathlon” is included in the practice of training all tankmen of the motorized rifle unit of the Southern Military District.
