The competition Safe Environment revealed the most accurate marksmen of the NBC recce
At the Pesochnoe range (Yaroslavl region) of the training center of the Military Academy of nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) protection named after Marshal of the Soviet Union S.K. Tymoshenko, at a specially equipped section of the military shooting range, intended for practical shooting exercises, the second stage of the all-army competition for the best NBC reconnaissance crew Safe Environment was held.
Prior to the start of the stage, team representatives and participants were not informed about the exercises to be performed.
The stage consisted of exercises with a machine gun: short - Ambush, medium - Alarm, and long - Combat reconnaissance.
Participants performed the exercises in field uniforms, safety glasses (except for the exercise where a gas mask is required), headphones or earplugs, a helmet, and a bulletproof vest. In addition, each of the servicemen had a bag with a gas mask.
Practical shooting was performed from a Kalashnikov assault rifle at targets (IPSC targets) at a range of 15 to 100 meters with a change of firing position, where each participant performed one of the three exercises independently on their own site.
All three exercises demanded from the servicemen the skills of high-speed loading of weapons, the choice of an advantageous position to defeat targets, the ability to quickly move around the battlefield and firing from a machine gun from various inconvenient positions and at different distances.
The best result in this competition was demonstrated by cadets of the Timoshenko Military Academy of the NBC protection and a representative of the Southern Military District.
