The international stage of engineering competitions of the International Army Games “Engineering Formula” and “Safe Route” started today in Tyumen. The opening ceremony took place at the Neftyanik House of Culture in Tyumen.

8 teams representing the armed forces of Russia, Belarus, Vietnam, Egypt, India, Venezuela, Uzbekistan, and Laos will take part in the international stages of military engineering competitions.

In the stages of practical actions, excavation machines MDK-3, track paving machines BAT-2, engineering clearing vehicles IMR-3, floating transporters PTS will be involved. The crews of self-propelled rocket launchers UR-77 “Meteorite”, better known in the military environment as “Serpent Gorynych” and tracked mine layer GMZ-3, will also be involved in the development of competitive tasks. In total, more than five dozen units of engineering special equipment will be involved in the competitive disciplines.

This year, an additional test for the engineering and assault units will be throwing small infantry shovels at a target from the barrier line and overcoming a web of barbed wire.

More than fifty standard obstacles were prepared for the stages of the competition at specialized Tyumen training grounds. At the distance of the “Safe Route”, it will be possible to observe competitive areas for reconnaissance of a ford, destruction of anti-tank mines by trawling and reconnaissance of the terrain for the presence of mine-explosive obstacles, the distance of restoring a column track by a road-paver and making passages with an engineering obstacle barrage machine.

On the eve of the competition, the instructors of the Tyumen Higher Military Command Engineering School held a master class for the contestants on the preparation and features of the practical operation of Russian engineering equipment.

Based on the results of the starts of military engineers of the participating countries of ARMI-2021, not only the winners of the stages in the competitive disciplines “Engineering Formula” and “Safe Route” will be determined, but also the names of the best crews (calculations) in a number of nominations will be named. Among other things, the best crew of the vehicle will be known for fragments of the MDK-3 pit, the BAT-2 track pavement, the GMZ-3 tracked minelayer, the IMR-3 engineering barrage vehicle, the UR-77 demining installation, the best TMM calculation when constructing a bridge over an obstacle, and the best engineering and assault department (group) of the international stage of ARMI-2021.

The International Army Games-2021 will be held from August 22 to September 4, 2021 on the territory of 11 states (Russia, Algeria, Armenia, Belarus, Vietnam, Iran, Qatar, Kazakhstan, China, Serbia, Uzbekistan). In total, more than 5 thousand servicemen, consisting of 277 teams from 42 countries, take part in 34 competitions of ARMI-2021.
