MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

Extreme driving classes for T-80U tanks and BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles with driver mechanics of the Kantemirovskaya tank division of the Red Banner Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District were held in the Moscow Region.

During the training, the servicemen overcame the track with more than 30 natural and artificial obstacles at an average speed of over 40 km / h. When passing obstacles with a positive slope of the roadway, tanks and infantry fighting vehicles were lifted off the ground to a height of up to 30 centimeters. Such activities require the coordination of tank crews and train the skill and reaction of the driver mechanics.

More than 70 servicemen and over 30 units of weapons, military and special equipment of a separate Kantemirovskaya tank division of the ZVO tank association were involved in the training.
