On the training ground of the military school of air defense and artillery, located on the territory of the city of Shahinshehr, Islamic Republic of Iran, the first day of the “Master gunsmith” competition of ARMI 2021 was held.

The servicemen competed in towing a damaged 122-mm D-30A towed howitzer from a technical position to a repair base, in repairing an artillery gun to bring it into working condition, in deploying the howitzer into a firing position and in conducting test firing to confirm the combat readiness of the gun. The route of towing a damaged artillery gun with a length of 4 km included overcoming a snake in the area of ​​imitation of the action of an incendiary weapon, an area of ​​mine-explosive obstacles, an overall corridor, a ford, a ditch with a track bridge, an infected area of ​​the terrain with dressing and removing personal protective equipment, replacing a howitzer wheel, driving the tractor to the shelter, as well as overcoming the hill (mound) with a stop on it. Field referees were present at each of these obstacles. For the objectivity of judging on the route, video recording means were used.

Based on the results of the implementation of the activities of this stage, the conditional execution time for each team is calculated, and according to it – the place of the team.

After the first stage of the competition, the Iranian team is in the lead. The second place is taken by the military personnel of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the third – by Russia. All teams competed in the repair and maintenance of artillery pieces provided by the Iranian side. The Russian team showed a good execution time, but not without penalty minutes.
