Surrender to the maroon beret: what qualities should a real commando possess?
Surrendering to the maroon beret is probably the most difficult test for any soldier of the internal troops, as well as an employee of special units of the internal affairs bodies. During the test, the resistance of the fighter is checked in a variety of plans. This is his ability to endure colossal physical exertion, and verification of willpower, the desire to go to the bitter end, and, of course, psychological preparation.
About marathon beret
What is the special meaning of wearing a krapovo beret? Why is it exactly red? As it is known, the military personnel of the airborne troops, as well as the GRU special forces, wear sky-blue berets as a daily uniform. For quite some time now, the right to wear the same berets was reserved for the Air Force in some individual cases.
And if everything is clear with the airborne troops, how can you explain the color of the beret in the case of internal troops? But the fact is that the fighters of the elite divisions of the internal troops are trained really tough. The veterans of the GRU special forces note that the distinguishing feature of any intelligence officer and special forces is the readiness to travel vast distances at a fast pace. That is, excellent endurance, the ability to make forced marches, being armed.
In fact, it is. At present, the GRU subunits pay more attention to endurance than to strength training. Although this element is undoubtedly also present. But in the elite divisions of the internal troops, this makes even more sense. The question arises: “Why?” The fact is that surrendering to the maroon beret involves making a 12-kilometer march in full gear. In the course of the passage of this distance, the fighters will be faced with the need to perform micro-tasks. This is not the only task that must be completed during the exam for the right to wear a keeper beret. However, without passing it, the subsequent implementation of the complex is impossible.
Special Forces: surrender to the maroon beret (standards)
Before a certain number of people are gathered who will take the exam for the right to wear a keeper beret, all potential participants are checked for fitness. This is done by passing the standards for physical training. The rating of a fighter on this item should not be lower than “good”. At the same time fire, tactical, special physical training is estimated. If she is below “excellent”, then the fighter will simply not be allowed to pass the exam.
Tests to be passed to potential applicants for the right to wear a krapovogo beret include running for 3 kilometers, pulling up on a horizontal bar, as well as a complex that includes 4 exercises. These are push-ups from the floor, the exercise “crouching-crouching”, performing an exercise on a press, as well as jumping up from a squat. These exercises are performed in mode 7 to 10. It is necessary to pass the preliminary test for a couple of days before passing the main exam.
Purpose of the test
The purpose of the qualification tests is the selection of the most trained military personnelwho have enhanced individual physical and fire skills. Such officers are very valuable due to their use in apprehending highly dangerous criminals. During the tests, moral qualities are also brought up.
As mentioned earlier, the basis of delivery is the passage of the march. Each fighter puts on all equipment, including military uniforms, body armor, hard hat. At the same time, servicemen make a forced march along with their standard weapon. It is at this stage of the competition that more potential candidates are eliminated. In general, the length of the march is 12 kilometers. But if an insufficient number of applicants were eliminated at the stage, the distance is increased until the required number of fighters remains.
The march includes not just cross-country running. These are running uphill and downhill, forcing swamps and even rivers, carrying a friend, crawling and so on. Immediately after the execution of the forced march, the fighters move on to the passage of the fiery assault obstacle course. Upon completion, a shot is fired from the standard weapon to check the condition of the weapon.If it does not work, the participant will be disqualified.
The next test is shooting. It, of course, is produced against the background of severe fatigue, which greatly affects the accuracy. Here additional skills of fighters are tested. After passing the shooting ranges, the servicemen proceed to storm the 5-storey building. With the help of special equipment, they must descend from the roof, in parallel opening fire on targets that replace a potential enemy. At the same time it is impossible to hit the target, imitating a hostage. After landing, the cables come unfastened, the soldier is obliged to reach the radio station standing on the table, and report on the completion of the assault.
Acrobatics and fight
Next comes the execution of a complex of acrobatic exercises, which include a flip from a wall with a turn, a flip forward from a springboard, and also a rise with a bend.
And finally, the crucial stage. This is the hardest part of the test. She, in general, and decides which of the fighters deserve the honor of wearing krapovogo beret. This is nothing more than checking the endurance and volitional qualities of a soldier by conducting continuous hand-to-hand combat.
The candidate, who has reached this part, will have to fight for 12 minutes. Fights are held for 4 minutes. During the hand-to-hand fight, the fighter will fight with one more examiner, and the remaining two rivals will already be the owners of the maroon beret. This is the most difficult stage, if only because the commando is already on the verge of exhaustion. And his opponents (owners of krapovogo beret) are full of strength. In general, during a hand-to-hand fight, the most important thing for a soldier is not to get knocked out. Here warnings for passive combat are counted, but that is if a soldier does nothing at all. In the course of the fight, the fighters receive cuts and bruises, but for that reason, the krapovy takes and the krapovy, that it shows the color of the blood paid for its receipt.
At present, servicemen serving in the internal troops on conscription are not allowed to perform examination tests. Now there is a so-called veteran surrender to the maroon beret. Participate in it may be people who have already completed conscription service in the internal troops, as well as serving in them under the contract.
