Vietnam was also crowned champion and won the cup in Group 2 of the Tank Biathlon, beating Abkhazia, Congo, Laos, Myanmar, Qatar, South Ossetia, and Tajikistan.

However, the Group 2 result did not count toward the medal tally.

With its success, Vietnam’s tank crew won a ticket to compete in the Tank Biathlon Group 1 next year, set to face nations like Belarus, China and Russia.

Other events Vietnam competed in include Safe Environment for reconnaissance crews, Emergency Area for emergency rescue units, True Friend for dog handlers, Field Kitchen, Masters of Artillery Fire, Sniper Frontier, and Military Medical Relay Race.

In all, Russian finished first with 25 gold medals, four silvers and one bronze, followed by Belarus, Uzbekistan, and China.

International Army Games 2020 was held in Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan from August 23 to September 5.

More than 5,000 participants from 156 teams from over 30 countries and regions competed in the event.
