The military engineers’ skills and, in particular, those of pontoon ferrying units, are constantly improving. According to Chief of engineer troops of the Armed Forces Lieutenant-General Yuri Stavisky, servicemen are demonstrating their high level at the “Open Water” competition.
“Last year, and this year as well, the preparation for this competition was rather serious – the skills are improving. Each military district prepared in advance, the best teams were chosen. The results of this year exceed last year’s results,” – said Stavitskiy. He noted that for the first time, this year the “Open water” involved motorized units which include pontoon ferrying divisions. The following year, the geography of the competition will be expanded.
