A special course on light diving training is being mastered by the servicemen of the ZVO tank unit stationed in Nizhny Novgorod. In the course of training events, the crews of combat vehicles will practice actions in the event of equipment failure, in other emergency situations during overcoming water obstacles and underwater driving.

Classes are held at the light diving complex at the Vododrome.

On a specially flooded model of a tank, servicemen are working out the standards for the use of a special insulating gas mask.

After that, the servicemen will work out the procedure for leaving the flooded combat vehicle. Also, tankers will master a special signal system that allows them to issue commands in conditions of poor visibility, limited space and lack of air.

Before starting the classes, all the servicemen fulfilled the swimming standards and passed the safety tests.

In total, over 400 military personnel take part in the classes. After completing the course of light diving training, the tankers will begin scuba diving.
