In Omsk for 10 days will identify the strongest in specific disciplines such as unloading a railway car by a crane at the precision replacement on heavy equipment damaged wheel and lifting the tank with a Jack. Competitions are held at the site of Omsk tank-automotive engineering Institute. The organizers approached their training with the utmost seriousness. The landfill is specially upgraded for the audience tribunes, near the road mounted numerous cafes. In their menu — kebabs, pilaf, and even beshbarmak and kumys. The hawks such an approach was to their liking — at the Grand opening of “Rembat” to find a free place was not easy.

The official part of the competition was spectacular. First soldiers from Russia, China and Kazakhstan were to March past the stands, then over the circuit flying aircraft light aircraft with flags of the participants, and after with the indicative program was made by soldiers of the honour guard of the Moscow Kremlin. Guards showed masterful technique of marching step and the ability to handle weapons, than broke a storm of applause. Vivid emotions among the audience caused a demonstration performance of cadets of the Omsk tank-automotive Institute. 11 people in a short time managed to screw disassemble army “UAZ” and then back to collect, to have, and even make this car a victory lap.

Directly in “Rembate” involves three types of techniques: workshops maintenance (MTO-UB1), repair and recovery machine (SEM-CL) and armored maintenance vehicle (BREM). Teams of Kazakhstan and Russia speak on our technology, and the Chinese brought to Omsk their cars.

— Each team has gone through a difficult selection to represent their armed forces.

I’m sure today will start an interesting confrontation professionals. Must win the most worthy, selfless and prepared — said about the participants of competitions the head of the Main armored Directorate of defense of the Russian Federation Lieutenant-General Alexander Shevchenko.

But to start out machines and technical support. Heavy maintenance technician at speed overcame the anti-tank ditch, and then the car drove up to the site, simulating a railroad. Here the soldiers were loaded, and then unloaded from the train platform concrete blocks. Then overcoming the Ford. And the final exercise — the towing of a car that, according to legend, was shot down on the battlefield.

If the initial stages the soldiers coped without problems, during transportation “wrecked” cars of the teams of China and Kazakhstan are experiencing difficulties. The Chinese unsuccessfully picked up car and while driving out of tow. And I noticed it’s the men from China almost at the finish line. They had to turn around to go back and re-hitch the car in tow. Kazakhs generally stalled on the track. As our team passed this stage without serious complaints and at the end of the first day lead in the competition.

The participant of competitions, the cadet of Omsk tank-automotive engineering Institute Nikolay Silakov, said that the team is very seriously preparing for the competition.

One of the most difficult on the course — the plot is uneven and water barrier, which machine overcomes at maximum load. The Chinese team is very serious, they show good results. Demonstrate how the teamwork of the crew, and work on the technique, told Selukov.

Despite the setbacks of rivals, chief armored Directorate of the Ministry of defense of Russia Alexander Shevchenko warns that just one is not going to surrender.
