During the Safe environment-2020 international competition, six records were set
Six records were set at the Pesochnoye training ground, located on the border of the Kostroma and Yaroslavl regions, during the international competition "Safe environment-2020".
On the first day of competition alone, chemical recce crews surpassed the team's achievements set in previous years with three records.
The chemical reconnaissance crew from Russia has surpassed its rivals in the speed of detecting sources of ionizing radiation. The servicemen managed to detect a radioactive object in 35 seconds, thereby setting an absolute record in this element of the competition. Even the winners of the "Safe environment-2019" contest, which holds the previous record, met this standard for two seconds longer.
At the final turn of the fire-storm lane, teams from the Russian Federation and the Republic of Uzbekistan set a new record during the "Individual race" stage, showing the same time: 5 minutes and 14 seconds. However, already at the "Relay" stage, the record was broken again, and surpassed the previous one by 24 seconds and amounted to 4 minutes and 50 seconds. This result of the two teams, officially registered by international judges and observers, was the best in the history of the Army international games.
But the main record of the first stage of the "Individual race" was the establishment by the crew from Russia of the best result for the entire period of the international competition "Safe environment". The team overcame the training ground track without penalty points, while meeting 24 standards for special training and NBC protection, demonstrating a record time of 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 exploration, special processing, and passed the fire-assault lane.
Another new record was set when performing special processing of equipment: the crews completed the task in less than 30 seconds.
At the final stage of the"Relay", two crews managed to complete the distance in 32 minutes and 22 seconds. This is the best time in the history of the Army international games.
