The army tactical shooting discipline, recently introduced into the combat training of the Russian army, will allow Russian military police officers to compete on an equal footing with the best foreign teams in the International Army Games. This was announced by the coach of the Russian team at the “Guardian of Order” competition, Major Vitaly Rubel.

“We were greatly helped by the military tactical shooting training that we did at home“… ”, – he said.

According to him, while training in Russia, the team trained with new domestic Yarygin pistols of 9×19 caliber used in foreign pistols, and also specially searched for old 7.62 mm AKM assault rifles, which are very similar to the Serbian Zastavas.

“At the games in Serbia, we use foreign weapons. We had to use the 7.62mm Zastava M70 submachine guns as an assault rifle, ”the coach said.

According to Rubel, Russian military police also had to master Glock 17 pistols of 9×19 mm caliber in just a few days, which they successfully coped with thanks to training during military tactical shooting classes in their homeland.

“Most of all, we were worried not about foreign weapons, but about preparations for competitions in vehicles, we thought that we would have to drive Land Rovers here and were very surprised in a good way when we saw that the Serbian military police bought a UAZ“ Patriot ”for their needs. “. We didn’t have to get used to other vehicles, ”the Russian army officer emphasized.

The competition “Guardian of Order” is held in the Serbian city of Kraljevo from August 29 to September 3 and consists of four stages. During them, the participants will have to demonstrate their shooting skills, practice the actions of a patrol squad in an impromptu settlement, go through a special obstacle course, including in a patrol car, and also make a military-police throw for 12 kilometers.

On the final day of the competition, the judges will announce the winning team, which will receive the Challenge Cup of the Guardian of the Order competition.
