The best crews of tanks and combat vehicles of the combined arms army of the Western Military District have started the first preparatory stage of the Tank Biathlon and Suvorov Onslaught competitions.

The track is equipped with firing points, from which the crews of BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles and T-72B3 and T-72BA tanks train to hit small and large targets imitating enemy manpower and equipment, at a distance of 300 to 1,700 meters. Along the route, the crews pass an obstacle course made of artificial and natural obstacles in the form of slopes, anti-tank ditches, track bridges, trenches and mine-explosive obstacles.

In total, over 500 servicemen of tank and motorized rifle units of the combined arms army of the Western Military District were involved in the preparation of the army stage of the Suvorov Onslaught and Tank Biathlon competition, which will be held at the end of January 2021.
