"Army scout masters" contest among Russian military base servicemen started in Armenia
Among the servicemen of the Russian military base in Armenia, the selection stage of the "Army scout masters" competition of the Army international games - 2020 has begun at The Kamkhud training ground.
Scouts temporarily overcome a snow barrier in winter (in summer – water) up to 100 m wide in full equipment with regular weapons, make a 5 km long march to the collection area and perform exercises of control shooting from regular weapons.
Signal scouts at route control points perform tasks for transmitting intelligence reports, which also affects the overall assessment of the group.
The most difficult tests will be overcoming the "scout trail", equipped with more than 20 obstacles at 800 m as part of a group and making a 10 km long cross-country march in full equipment with weapons.
More than 300 soldiers from the intelligence units of the formation participate at the qualifying stage of the competition in preparation for Army games-2020. The winners of the competition will represent the Russian military base in the selection stage among the intelligence units of the Southern Military District.
