At the Alagyaz high-mountain training complex of the Southern Military District (SMD) in the Republic of Armenia, the qualifying stage of the Tank Biathlon field training competition for the 2022 International Army Games has started.

The crews of the T-72B tanks will perform tank driving exercises with overcoming obstacles, hit various types of targets at a distance of 900 to 2200 m with a guided projectile, standard projectile and Kord heavy machine gun ammunition.

Also, tankers pass the standards for physical fitness and tests for knowledge of the tactical and technical characteristics of the T-72B.

A feature of the training of military personnel in high altitude conditions (more than 2200 m above sea level) is the complexity of controlling military equipment and the need to make various adjustments when performing training firing exercises.

The winners of the stage of the competition will continue to compete on the scale of the association and the district.
