In the Primorsky Territory, at the Gornostay training ground, the teams participating in the Army-2021 Marine Assault Competition conducted training on a specialized obstacle course and on a march route called the “survival trail”.

The training was attended by teams from the People’s Republic of China, the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. In addition to the teams that regularly participate in the “Marine landing” competition, the training was conducted by the teams of the Republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which are participating in the competition for the first time.

On August 25, the stage of the competition “Obstacle Course” will take place, in which the contestants will have to overcome: brick walls with breaks, a blockage, a moat with water, a wooden fence, a wire net, a section with water pipes – about 20 obstacles in total. Among them, one of the most difficult is the telegraph pole, the communication line on which the participants have to cut off.

The start is carried out simultaneously for two teams in the order established by the draw. In accordance with the conditions of the competition, each soldier performs an exercise in military uniform with standard weapons. In case of failure on the obstacle, the soldier overcomes it again. In case of repeated error, the soldier continues to move along the obstacle lane with the accrual of a penalty time.

The Marine Assault Competition is held at two training grounds for the Pacific Fleet (Pacific Fleet) Marine Corps from August 22 to August 29. The Russian team in the competition is represented by the Pacific Fleet marines – the winners of the all-army stage, as well as servicemen of the Northern and Baltic fleets, cadets of the Far Eastern Higher Combined-Arms Command School named after K.K. Rokossovsky.

For reference:

The 2021 International Army Games will be held from August 22 to September 4 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.
