In the Moscow region, the servicemen of the Kantemirovskaya tank division of the tank formation of the Western Military District, on the eve of the exercises of underwater driving of tanks, began to conduct light diving training.

During practical exercises at the training complex, more than 70 tankers will learn how to use insulating gas masks and leave flooded equipment, how to move correctly along the bottom of a conditional reservoir, act in critical situations, as well as in conditions of oxygen starvation.

The main task of light diving training is to develop a sense of confidence in military personnel in their own actions while in a confined space and to overcome the fear of water.

Classes are held at special training complexes located at the base of the Taman motorized rifle division of the Western Military District. Soon, the servicemen will use the acquired skills and knowledge in the practical overcoming of the water obstacle by the servicemen on the T-80U tanks at the vododrome.
