The competition includes three stages: "individual race", "fire training" and "relay". The crews will meet more than 20 standards for special training and nuclear, biological and chemical protection. The contestants will overcome the obstacles course of the contest, take part in practical shooting, search for radioactive sources, chemical exploration, special processing, and pass the fire-assault lane.
During the individual race, drivers of the RHM-4 chemical reconnaissance vehicles will have to demonstrate their driving skills in a special technique on a closed route with a total length of 5,500 meters.
At the stage of fire training, participants must demonstrate the ability to fire from various inconvenient positions in a limited space, high accuracy when shooting from standard weapons.
During the most spectacular stage – the relay – the contestants will have to detect "radiation", carry out special processing of weapons and equipment, as well as overcome various obstacles.
International competitions will allow the crews of RHM-4 to demonstrate their skills on a special route equipped with sites for sampling conditionally infected soil, to find radioactive sources on the ground and on equipment, to identify toxic substances in the air and conduct special processing of equipment.
The competition will end on August 29.
