Belarusians 2nd in individual race at ARMY 2017 tank biathlon

A Belarusian crew showed the second best result in the individual race of tank biathlon at the ARMY 2017 international games. The competition is held near Moscow polygon Alabino.

Belarusian tankmen showed traditionally high results in shooting hitting all the targets.

But a fatal accident prevented them from becoming first. The tank skidded overcoming one of the obstacles. The body of the combat vehicle caught the pole. As a result, the panel of judges added a minute of penalty time to the crew.

The first stage of tank biathlon - individual race - is the longest. Belarusian crews will take part in other events on August 1 and 5. After the races have been completed, the rating of the best crews will be compiled. 12 teams out of 18 will enter the semifinal relay. Only four will be able to enter the finals to compete for podium places.
