Russian chemical recce crew sets new world record
On the first day of competition at the "Pesochnoye" training ground (Yaroslavl region), in the presence of international judges and observers, the Russian chemical recce crew set a new world record for passing the track at the "Individual race" stage at the international competition "Safe Environment-2020".
The chemical recce crew from Primorsky Krai met 24 standards for special training and NBC protection without penalty points and passed the training ground route, demonstrating a record time for the entire history of Army Games: 22 minutes and 49 seconds. The contestants overcame the obstacles of the competition route, took part in practical shooting, searched for radioactive sources, conducted chemical reconnaissance, special processing, and passed the fire-assault lane.
During the individual race, the driver of the RHM-4 chemical reconnaissance vehicle demonstrated the skills of driving special equipment on a closed route with a total length of 5,500 meters.
For the first time, nine teams representing the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the People's Republic of China, the Republic of Belarus, the Republic of Armenia, the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, the Republic of Uzbekistan, the Lao People's Democratic Republic, the Kingdom of Cambodia, and the Republic of Mozambique participate in the competition.
The training ground tracks simulate the zone of a man-made accident as much as possible.
They are equipped with a track bridge, a track passage in a mine-explosive barrier, a restricted passage, and a section of extreme maneuvering.
The competition consists of three stages: "individual race", "fire training" and "relay".
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, find radioactive sources on the ground and on equipment, identify toxic substances in the air and conduct special processing of equipment.
The competition will end on August 29.
