3月8日至17日,来自中国、美国、英国、巴西等10个国家的14支军校代表队,受邀参加“奥希金斯将军”陆军学院为庆祝建院200周年举行的国际军事教育大会暨国际巡逻比赛。

SANTIAGO, CHILE, Mar. 28 (ChinaMil) -- A total of 14 military academy teams from ten countries including China, the United States, Britain and Brazil attended the International Military Education Conference and the International Patrol Competition in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Military Academy of General Bernadro O'Higgins in Santiago, capital of Chile, from March 8 to March 17, 2017.

以智利“独立之父”奥希金斯命名的“奥希金斯将军”陆军学院,是智利著名的一所军事院校。

This military academy is named after General Bernardo O'Higgins, a leader in Chile’s struggle for independence, and is also a famous military academy in Chile.

陆军军官学院受邀代表我军院校参赛,首次派遣10名学员与美国西点军校、英国桑赫斯特皇家军事学院等世界一流军校的130名学员同台竞技。

The Army Officer Academy of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) attended the competition on behalf of Chinese military academies. It sent ten cadets to join the competition with another 130 cadets from world-class military academies including the United States' Military Academy at West Point and Britain's Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS).

比赛以“山地部队步兵班武装巡逻战斗”为战术背景,按实战标准设置了装具检查、战伤救护、车辆救援、手榴弹投掷、步枪应用射击、化学武器防护与街区搜救、海上操舟救援、夜间定向越野、7.5公里武装越野、阵地突击、1000米游骑兵障碍越野、战地协同搬运、直升机机动、指挥能力挑战等14个科目,在48小时内连续实施。

With “conducting armed patrol and combat by infantry squads of mountain troops” as tactical background, the competition involved 14 training subjects, namely fittings check, first-aid to the battle wounded, vehicle rescue, hand grenade throwing, rifle shooting, chemical weapons protection and neighborhood search and rescue, boat rescue at sea, night orienteering, 7.5-km armed cross-country, battlefield assault, 1,000-meter Ranger steeplechase, field cooperative carrying, helicopter maneuver, and command capability challenge. All these subjects were held in succession within 48 hours.

对于首次走出国门参加比赛的陆军军官学院参赛学员来说,考验无处不在。

Tests were everywhere for the cadets of the PLA Army Officer Academy who went abroad to join an international competition for the first time.

这次比赛使用的武器装备、竞赛器材全部由主办方提供,参赛学员之前从未接触过,如直升机机动直接采用法国“小羚羊”直升机实装组织,步枪应用射击使用的是加利尔ACE22自动步枪。

All the weapons and equipment used in the competition were provided by the organizers, and Chinese participants had never touched or used them before. For example, the French Gazelle helicopters were adopted for the helicopter maneuver subject, and the Galil ACE22 automatic rifles were used in the rifle shooting subject.

比赛地域陌生,情况设置复杂,如海上操舟救援直接在太平洋东海岸组织,风大浪急,翻船落水情况随时可能发生。

The competition area was also unfamiliar to the Chinese participants and the situations and settings were very complicated. For example, the subject of boat rescue at sea was held near the Pacific east coast where the rough sea might easily lead to a shipwreck or an overboard fall at any time.

此外,参赛学员还要克服比赛期间无热食、无睡眠、昼夜温差大等不利因素。

In addition, participants also had to overcome unfavorable factors during the competition including lack of hot food and sleep hours, as well as the sharp temperature differences between the day and night.

考验面前,陆军军官学院参赛学员迎难而上,以过硬素质和顽强作风获得7.5公里武装越野、1000米游骑兵障碍越野、战地协同搬运三个单项第一名。

Participating cadets of the PLA Army Officer Academy faced up to the difficulties and won three first prizes in the 7.5-km armed cross-country, 1,000-meter Ranger steeplechase and field cooperative carrying.

海上操舟救援、步枪应用射击二个单项第二名,以微弱差距位列总分第三名,仅次于东道主智利“奥希金斯将军”陆军学院代表队和美国西点军校代表队。

They also won two second’s in the boat rescue at sea, and rifle shooting, and ranked the third in the total points, only narrowly lost to the host Chile’s General Bernadro O'Higgins Military Academy team and the US Military Academy at West Point team.

赛后,智利总统巴切莱特、陆军总司令奥维耶道上将分别接见中国军校代表队成员,赞赏中国参赛学员的出色表现。

After the competition, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and Army Commander-in-chief General Humberto Oviedo Arriagada met with Chinese military academy team members respectively, and praised Chinese participating cadets' outstanding performance.
