International military competition “Prealpi 2014” - Cordignano (TV) (North-East of Italy) - June 7, 2014

FNR sponsor and promote training and promotional activities in favour of Reserve military.

The approach is strictly bond to the comprehension of the new settings of modern Armed Forces and to the exact respect of the nowadays international military standards.

With this preface, members of organization and competition referees are regular members and leaders of FNR. With the integration of foreign Reserve military and experts, they know the issues of the tasks/exercises of which they are responsible.

In many cases, instructors and referees have performed recent Reserve duty calls for the operational needs of the Armed Forces, regularly take part to the activities organized by FNR and/or similar foreign Associations. Instructors and referees do not receive any payment for their service at the competition.

The concept under which the International military competition “Prealpi 2014” develops is based on few general comments:
  • -  it is internationally set that a military unit employed in a military operation is capable of her own self-defense, only if is composed of at least 4 elements; this is well codified by the various Standard Operational Procedures (SOP) issued by NATO,
  • -  the evolution and the spectre of operations in which modernArmed Forces operate drove to adjustments of the military doctrine. Nowadays, manuals ans Standard Operational Procedures provide the operational modality to which military units have to comply absolving their duties and tasks.
    A satisfactorily participation to the International military competition “Prealpi 2014” requires:
  • -  a good fitness base,
  • -  the knowledge of the techniques and capacity of the so-called “basic infantry skills”,
  • -  ability of “teamworking”,
  • -  a modest knowledge of English language,
  • -  competition esprit,
  • -  comraderie.
    To grant any Team will do its own land navigation, the time gap between Teams at start will be the highest possible.
    As much as possible, after any task/exercise that time interval will be restored, conserving the arrival sequence to station.
    The competition is build on a sequence of tasks/exercises, which execution is inspired to SOPs.
    Any exercise will be evaluated by the respective Referee.
    Any task/exercise can be succesfully faced by military who own the basic operational capability of the Light Infantry Team, integrated with a good fitness.

    The route entirely develops outside build-up areas and the various station can be reached by mean of existing tracks and paths, these are often not given in the maps.
In some cases it will be necessary to leave the existing roads/paths.

In these cases and in the roughest pieces the right direction is marked by red/white ribbon flocks.

The total distance to complete the competition is about 7 kilometers, almost entirely comprised within a 400 meters height belt.
During the execution of the competition, the integration of elements within Teams will be an advantage. This is particularly true in occasion of the tasks of managing natural and man-made obstacles.
Also the ability of Teams to develop the right solutions will be important.
The time given for the execution of any task/exercise is surely enough, while only exceeding 20% of the best Team time at exercise will result in the application of a penalty coefficient.

At some station, tasks/exercises will be solved individually by any of Team's members.

It is evident that in this cases the Teams having less than 4 components could get a lower score.

In respect to safety, the excution of those tasks/exercises requiring courage/bravery is not mandatory. Also in this case, the Team could get a lower or no score.
Further details will be given at the briefing prior to start.
Depending on the timing of the competition, with the purpose to clear doubts and foster training and knowledge, it could be held a final briefing, during which the correct executions will be explained.

The nature of the competition is OPERATION.

The useless and purposeless showing off of military uniforms ARE NOT purposes of FNR.
For this, as it is customary at FNR's activities, apart of award ceremony, it WILL NOT be held any military display/parade of Teams and competitors, as this is not giving any plus to the event.

Furthermore, for the same reason and also to respect the various religious sensiteveness of individuals, it WILL NOT be held any religion feature. 

  • -  to verify the training level of Reserve military,
  • -  to promote integration and interoperability of italian and foreign Reserve military,
  • -  to suggest improvements of the training plans adopted,
  • -  to endeavour comraderie in an international environment.
    General: the competition will develop in a light mountain environment, under any meteo condition.
    Moving as for the received instructions, Teams will reach various stations, where Teams will have to perform military skillnesses and tasks..
    Station are managed by referees.
    At any station competitors will find the necessary equipments and tools, necessary to solve the tasks.
