Teams from Serbia, Belarus, India, and Kazakhstan battled for places in the final. Three different crews from each team performed four laps of the circuit and fired at a range of targets in the relay.
Kazakhstan took first place using a Russian-made T-72B3 tank, with Belarus taking second.
An accident occurred during the competition, when grass caught fire causing the race to be temporarily halted. The fire was extinguished promptly and the competition resumed.
Four teams from Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, and China will participate in the final, which takes place on Saturday.
