What’s new in ARMI-2019
Every year the organizers make a number of changes. This was no exception. We list only the biggest innovations.
First Member State from Western Europe. For the first time in the Army Games will be attended by the military of a Western European country. They were soldiers from Switzerland.
Women. Another curious innovation. Representatives of the weaker half of humanity decided to stand shoulder to shoulder with men. And not anyhow where – and in the "Tank Biathlon"! Women tankers have already started preparing for the championship.
New contests. In the last edition of the military competed in 28 disciplines. Now four more competitions have been added to them: “Horse marathon”, “Sayan march”, “Emergency region”, “Polar star”.
Results of the International Army Games 2019
Favorite competition Russia. Domestic military in a number of competitions actually compete only with each other. Representatives of Russia are very good in such disciplines as "Tank Biathlon", "Engineering Formula", "Aviadarts". In ARMI-2018, the Russians won 18 first places, five – second and two – third. For comparison: China, located on the second line of the overall standings, excelled only in four disciplines.
Belarusians and Kazakhs perform very well. Perhaps in 2019 they will try to challenge Russia!
