In the vicinity of the border with Afghanistan at the Harb-Maidon training ground, during the Echelon-2021 special exercise of the military contingents of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) member states, servicemen carried out a massive refueling of armored vehicles.

The servicemen made a multi-kilometer march to the area of ​​the Harb-Maidon training ground to deliver fuel and lubricants to units performing combat training missions to destroy a simulated enemy.

Support divisions deployed about 30 dispensing hoses for automobile refueling and transportation vehicles AC-7-4310, ATMZ-5.5-4310, AC-10-260 with PZP-14. For the first time in the exercise, the newest ATZ-12-10-63501 refueling tanker based on the Mustang KamAZ vehicle was used, which allows you to simultaneously refuel 10 units of various equipment.

During the exercise, the CSTO collective forces worked out the tasks of joint refueling of equipment; in total, more than 30 tons of fuel were pumped from mobile tanks into the tanks of T-72 tanks, BTR-82A armored personnel carriers, 2S1 self-propelled howitzers, and lightly armored MT-LB multipurpose tractors. This method made it possible to reduce the time spent by the unit in the area of ​​mass dispensing of fuel by more than two times.
