The first place in the competition was taken by the Chinese team. The team from Belarus won the bronze medals, and the team from Venezuela took the fourth line of the final rating.

In the final stage of the “Relay”, three crews from each team took part, alternately driving one combat vehicle for four laps of the competition track 12 km long, overcoming 11 obstacles: a model of a track bridge, a comb, two slopes, a scarp, a ford, a track passage in a mine -explosive obstacle, barrow, two fire stripes and an anti-tank ditch – and also fired at various targets from a 30-mm BMP cannon and a coaxial machine gun in the firing areas.
