The rules of tank biathlon are not much different from ordinary skiing biathlon. Participants shoot at targets and overcome laps on a speed. They should load shells and cartridges into a tank before shooting.

Weapons and targets are different. The nearest target is the first one to shoot at. Then the tanks overcome another lap and shoot at the target called “helicopter” (on the picture above). Another lap and the remotest target located 2100 meters from a tank.

Signal fireworks let the participants, judges and spectators know if the targets are successfully hit.

If a tank hits the target from the first time it goes for an ordinary 6,1 km lap where it overcomes various obstacles which is not so easy for heavy vehicles. Fording point, for example.

If a tank misses the target its crew has to load an additional ammunition and shoot again. If it is a success the tank goes for a penalty loop. Otherwise – two penalty loops.

  1. Tank-Biathlon should be a real sport. You can see, those Military eqipment is used to see which staff works as the best. They are against time , not enemy soldiers. I like it and i hope a lot of Weapen-haters will like that too!
    …Tanks are cool!!!

  2. Good spotting Matthew! Finally Russians begin to open their hearts to homosexuals, showing their support through artful painting of their tanks.
    very Russian!
