Russian Pacific Tank Biathlon Race 2017

Posted on February 20, 2017 by tim

This year Russian Pacific gets  tank training. Formally they do this to get prepared for a “Tank Biathlon”  event later this year. Tank biathlon is a race and shoot thing, but instead of skis they use tanks. This is a fifth annual contest between tank crews of Russia and nearby countries.  Only twenty crews from all Russia need to be selected so here the tankers compete to be marked as a best crew and represent Russia in Tank Biathlon 2017. Let’s see some pics:

This is Russian Far East Army Commander general Asapov.

Tank crew consists of three people: officer, driver and marksman, all proffesional soldiers.

The length of this tank race is 7 km.

Tank biathlon is like normal biathlon – racing and shooting.
