The repair units of the Pskov Guards Airborne Assault Formation performed test driving exercises for vehicles and armored vehicles at the Zavelichye training ground.

At the theoretical part of the lesson, the driver’s staff of the unit answered in writing questions about the basics and rules of driving automobile and armored vehicles, as well as questions about tests in tickets for driving and traffic rules.

At the second training point, the personnel of the repair departments complied with the standards for installing the battery, starting the engine using a pre-heater and replacing the wheel. For armored vehicles, the standards for installing the battery, checking the filling of the engine system with fuel and preparing the vehicle for self-recovery using a log were fulfilled.

At the practical stage, the servicemen worked out the standards for loading and unloading equipment on railway platforms and semi-trailers, and also passed the driving on the tank track of two units of the BTR-MDM “Rakushka” and three units of the BTR-D.

On the route of the equipped autodrome, the drivers of KamAZ-5350 vehicles overcame thirteen obstacles, including an overall corridor, a box, a dead-end overpass, an overall figure eight, a track bridge, an anti-tank ditch with a passage, a hill, a slope, a counter-escarp and a snake.

In total, about 50 drivers and mechanics-drivers of the repair units of the Pskov connection took part in the lesson.

Representatives of the command of the formation, who took control exercises, highly appreciated the training of drivers and mechanics-drivers of repair units.
