Cadets of the military training center of the Ural Federal University (UrFU), studying as an engineer for the operation of multipurpose tracked vehicles, performed the first driving of T-72 tanks. The training event took place as part of an internship at the training ground of the Central Military District in the Orenburg region.

During the practical lesson, under the guidance of teachers, the cadets performed a control examination of the combat vehicle, starting the engine, starting off, stopping on the ascent and descent, placing the tank in and out of the trench. Then the future commanders of tank platoons performed the elements of maneuvering included in the combat training program of tank subunits: overcoming a minefield and passing a track bridge.

In total, about 100 cadets and teachers of the military training center were involved in practical driving. Before practical driving, the cadets completed all the studied maneuvers on special simulators, and also passed the theoretical test for driving safety requirements.
