At the Alabino training ground near Moscow, the command of the Western Military District fulfilled the dream of the Zateev brothers from the Republic of Karelia, Kirill and Gordey, who wanted to visit the military training ground and sit in a real tank.

At the training ground, the guys were met by the commander of the Guards Tank Army, Lieutenant General Sergei Kisel and, before becoming part of the crew of the combat vehicle, the commander made a short presentation for the guys and told about the characteristics of the T-80BVM and T-72B3M tanks and the tanker’s outfit.

Each of the brothers was able to feel like a tank commander and a gunner-operator during a race along the route of the “Tank Biathlon” competition. After that, the children were introduced to the weapons and military equipment of the renowned Taman motorized rifle division, and also showed the regular shooting from the armament of T-72B3M tanks.

The tour of the Alabino training ground ended with a tea party with the command of the tank army, where the children were presented with sweet gifts from Santa Claus, mock-ups of a tank in service with the army and tank headsets.

The brothers turned to the commander of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District with the words: “Thank you for the New Year’s gift!”
