Military police teams from six countries have completed their performances at the third stage of the International Army Games-2021 “Guardian of Order” competition, which is being held in Serbia for the first time. On the third day of the competition, a race of patrol outfits awaited the participants – a test not only for strength and endurance, but also for purely professional skills.

At the “Patrol outfit” stage, teams of three participants each compete on a track that includes a walking unit and a section for driving a patrol car. During the passage of the test, they need to fulfill the standards for NBC protection, assemble the disassembled machine gun, equip the magazine with cartridges and throw mock-ups of hand grenades for accuracy. Then the team gets into a patrol car and starts driving along the highway, making stops to fire a pistol at targets, to repel an attack from conditional saboteurs and to provide first aid to a conditionally wounded crew member.

The third stage of the “Guardian of Order” competition is one of the most difficult, says the captain of the Serbian team, Major Radovan Marinkovic: “Today’s test itself is very difficult and requires not only great physical, but also psychological efforts from the team. Therefore, perhaps the fourth stage will be even easier than the third, ”said the leader of the host team after playing on the track. At the same time, the player considers the first day of the competition to be the most difficult.

“From the point of view of psychological stress, the first stage, of course, is the most difficult,” explained Radovan Marinkovic. “After him, when the competition has already begun and you already know who is performing, the tension gradually subsides and it becomes easier.”

The results of the stage are still kept secret: the panel of judges did not make a final decision on the placement of points for the participants. The updated standings will be announced after an additional meeting of all referees.

The final of the competition “Guardian of the Order” of the Army-2021 will be the “Military-Police Throw” on the track “Race of Heroes”, which the Serbian side recreated at its Beranovac training ground – with some changes and innovations. The battle for the main prize of the competition will take place on September 3.

For reference:

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.

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.
