The crews of the armored personnel carriers BTR-82A and BTR-70M of the marine units of the Caspian Flotilla (CFL) overcame water obstacles using the lock method and practiced single driving of combat vehicles afloat within the framework of amphibious assault training (TIR).
Training events were held on a specially equipped area of the sea coast of the training complex “Scorpion”. Classes on overcoming water obstacles are an integral part of the combat training of driver mechanics. Before the start of training on the water, the servicemen underwent theoretical training and made a march from their permanent deployment site to the area where combat training missions were being performed.
At the training points, the crews of armored personnel carriers performed maintenance of the vehicles, checked the serviceability of systems, components and assemblies that ensure the operation of equipment afloat, as well as the tightness of combat vehicles.
At the next stage, the Marines overcame water obstacles using the “locks” method, performed solo driving of combat vehicles afloat, improved their skills in controlling equipment in open water, deploying in battle formation when approaching the coastline, moving as part of a subunit and maintaining a distance between vehicles.
In total, about 200 servicemen of the KFL marines took part in the TIR training, more than 20 units of combat vehicles and special equipment were involved.
