As part of the control check of units of the army corps of the Eastern Military District on the Kuril Islands, tank driver mechanics
T-72B3 compete in driving combat vehicles in difficult conditions of rough terrain.

The peculiarity of passing control exercises in driving combat vehicles is that they are held in a competitive spirit. On a specially prepared tank course, in difficult terrain conditions, servicemen of tank companies compete in driving military equipment, overcoming mine-explosive obstacles, a track bridge, an anti-tank ditch, ascents, descents,
as well as other natural and artificial barriers. The driver must pass all obstacles without stopping, without touching the limit posts and without stopping the engine. The length of the route is 6 kilometers.

During the summer training period, driver mechanics underwent a theoretical training course, trained in driving tanks in various conditions on special training complexes, after which they were allowed to drive on a tank range, where they honed their skills before passing the final test.

At the end of the control exercises, all the mechanics-drivers of the T-72B3 tanks showed good results when passing obstacles and demonstrated excellent knowledge of the technical structure of military equipment.

During the execution of the control exercise and the passage of obstacles, special attention was paid to the strict observance of safety measures by the military.
