Tank Biathlon: Armenian tankers lost the prize due to a technical failure

Chief Judge, Major General Evgeny Poplavsky yesterday announced the results for the tank competition in the scopes of the International Army Games, according to which the Russian team with a score of 73 minutes and 30 seconds won the first prize, the second result showed the Chinese tankers, overcoming the distance in 77 minutes and 32 seconds, the third place took the crew from Kazakhstan with a score of 78 minutes and 18 seconds. The fourth result showed Serbs who passed the distance for 83 minutes and 23 seconds.    

The Armenian team, which from the outset was considered as one of the favorites of the tank tournament, took the sixth place. During the semifinal, the Armenian tank crew was second, but on one of the turns, the Indian crew behind tried to overtake them and, as a result, there was a small collision between the two vehicles, which created additional problems for the Armenian team.

But, according to the head of the Armenian tank team and a member of the board of the competition, Lieutenant-General Muraz Sargsyan, the main reason that impeded the Armenian team to keep the lead, was the failure of the automatic firing of the gun, so that the Armenian crew was forced to make the shots manually, which took much more time than using the automatic system of firing. In a conversation with the RUSARMINFO reporter Muraz Sargsyan informed that it was the technical failure that prevented the Armenian crew to take the prize.

Note: The final of the tank competition will take place on August 15, on the closing day of the International Army Games, at the firing field Alabino, near Moscow.
