RESULTS OF «ENGINEERING FORMULA» CONTEST

DIGGING OUT OF A DITCH BY MDK CREWS

MDK crews are on the start line depending on their final positions in the qualifying run. As soon as the traffic lights turn on the crews start driving simultaneously. The MDK crews have to pass one lap. Each crew arrives at an individual platform (further – pitstop) where they are to carry out their engineer task, i.e. to dig out a ditch 4 m long (bottom measurements) and
0,8 m deep. After that the crews move on towards finish line.

PENALTIES

—Touching a limiting pole at an obstacle ground.
—Obstacle knocked down.
—Digging a small ditch.
—Violation of mission sequence (standard) leading to an accident, vehicle or weapon breakdown (damage).

TRENCH BACKFILLING BY BAT CREWS


The MDK crews hand on the button to BAT crews on a signal of the traffic lights given by the judge. Each crew has to pass one lap of the track. On arriving at the pitstop, BAT crews back-fill the ditch made by the MDK crews and move on towards finish line.


PENALTIES

—Touching a limiting pole at an obstacle ground.
—Soil subsidence of more than 20 cm after a drive
of a BAT.
−Obstacle knocked down.
—Violation of mission sequence (standard) leading to an accident, vehicle or weapon breakdown (damage).

LOGS SHIFTING AND EMPLACING BY IMR CREWS


The BAT crews hand on the button to IMR crews as soon as the traffic lights are switched on by the judge. The IMR crews arrive at individual platforms to perform an engineer task. The crews have to shift four logs and emplace them into previously equipped holes (pits) located nearby and then drive on to the finish line.


PENALTIES

− Dropping a log being
shifted.
—Touching a limiting pole
at an obstacle ground.
—Failing to emplace a log
into the equipped hole.
− Obstacle knocked
down.
− Violation of mission
sequence (standard)
leading to an accident,
vehicle or weapon
breakdown (damage).

EQUIPMENT TRANSPORTATION ACROSS A WATER OBSTACLE BY PTS CREWS


The IMR crews hand on the button to PTS crews as soon as the judge switches on the traffic lights. Each crew passes one lap of the track. To fulfill the engineer task the PTA crews approach the vehicle loading (unloading) ground. The personnel have to load a vehicle on to the amphibious carrier, have it fixed, perform a manoeuver within established boundaries, then return to the vehicle loading (unloading) ground, unload the vehicle and finally move on towards the finish line.


PENALTIES

− Moving beyond
established boundaries.
− Failing to fix a vehicle
while loading a TCP.
—Touching a limiting pole
at an obstacle ground.
—Touching a buoy.
− Obstacle knocked
down.
—Violation of mission sequence (standard)
leading to an accident, vehicle or weapon
breakdown (damage).
RESULTS
Winners and prize-winners are decided by the judging committee on the best time scored by the teams during the relay, with the results brought into the rating table and a protocol with the Competition results issued.

Rewarding the winners and prize-winners cups and medals is carried out during an awarding ceremony upon the termination of both stages after the judges have approved the final protocol for each stage.
