MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Servicemen of the Marine Corps of the Caspian Flotilla (CFL) have started amphibious assault training (TIR) at the Scorpion training complex.
The training includes working out methods of overcoming water spaces on floating equipment on their own, performing loading and unloading of personnel and combat vehicles on landing ships and boats, as well as studying the device of landing and landing vehicles.
During the TIR, the mechanics-drivers of the KFL Marine Corps Regiment improve their skills in driving military equipment on land and afloat. Before the start of practical training, they underwent theoretical training, practiced actions on simulators, and also received the necessary practice in driving equipment in various conditions.
The crews of the newest armored personnel carriers BTR-82A, while crossing the sea sections, will comply with the standards for the damage control of equipment afloat, in the event of a fire, when water enters the vehicle or loss of progress and control.
In the near future, the marines will have to practice loading, placing armored vehicles inside the twin-deck landing ships KFL, as well as landing by the “floating” method on an unequipped sea coast.
In total, more than 250 servicemen of the KFL marines took part in practical exercises on TIR, about 30 units of BTR-82A armored personnel carriers were involved.
