We are going to spend some time with an odinary regiment of Belarus and see how they conduct live firing, survive in cold and much more.
It’s often quite a challenge to find a uniform of a proper size. So if you do not look foolish it’s already a luck.
This is a multiple rocket launcher “Hurricane”.
The vehicles stayed unneeded fr almost twenty years so they need some care now before being used again.
Nobody has to expect any rest here.
It’s a combat vehicle ZIL-135. Fuel consumption 140 l/100 km.
It flies like a bird with speed of 80 km/h.
In fact there are no many specialists here who had any experience driving “Hurricanes”.
Some of the vehicles need more serious repair.
The all the vehicles undergo inspection. And they take the process seriously.
It’s a canteen. By the way, they eate from porcelain plates.
Everything necessary is sold here, even condoms… (Women serve here too). The prices are normal.
The weapons they use: AKS-74, AKSU-74.
The soldiers need to undergo training now.
Deployment of the combat vehicle from the travelling position into the combat one (four persons, three minutes).
Covering the vehicle with the tarpaulin is included in this three minutes.
The missile like this weighs 300 kg.
Surveyors and gunners are examining the gyrocompass made in the 1960s.
The distance of the march is 300 km. It has to be overcome for two days but it takes them ten hours only. Four units of the equipment out of 61 have not reached the destination. It’s a good result for the equipment that stood idle for twenty years.
The dry ration consists of canned porridge and tea. No meat.
Three cans of porridge, two packages of biscuits, two tea bags, 12 bags of sugar.
Life in a tent: sleeping on a bunk, doing the deed with a gun, washing in the next tent.
To the left is the tent for washing.
If you want to feel warm…
Luckily they have a saw.
The KAMAZ is fully loaded with wood, it will be enough for a week for the battalion.
The way for wood is not short – about thirty kilometres.
“Where are the logs from?
The shed was taken to pieces…
Do you hear daddy still being beaten?
I managed to run away”.
The lard was taken from some major.
The snow here is rather high.
Here they wash hands and the dishes.
Nobody likes lazy people.
There is a problem with the pipe.
Such a vehicle was found nearby.
They have all equipment to repair vehicles in the field. The lifting capacity of this thing is 1500 kg.
It looks like this in process.
Those four vehicles are being repaired.
They have no places in Belarus to fire at the maximum distance from “Hurricanes” (47 km), so they fire at the distance of ten kilometers.
It’s the missile itself.
These guys give coordinates of the target with wind correction.
The fake bomb.
There was a nice party in the end but the camera battery was already low.
