Uncompromising and fair sports classification of the participants in each division and determination of prize-winners will be ensured by the set of rules of the T-Class sport,

using an automated system for calculating results adopted by the international sports organization ITCC (International T-Class Confederation).

The advantage of T-Class in one of the most popular disciplines: [TS] Tactical Sniper is the optimal system for evaluating the shooter’s skills in all aspects of accurate, dynamic shooting, including long distances up to 1200 meters. (see https://t-class.org/rules/)

MODULE 1 – “ACCURACY”. This module contains exercises that allow you to evaluate basic shooting skills from various standard, stable positions. It uses paper and metal targets at distances up to 500 meters. The result is calculated by the number of points.
MODULE 2 – “DYNAMICS”. Dynamic T-CLASS exercises, including shooting with changing different shooting positions (including unstable ones), shooting at moving targets at distances up to 700 meters. Points for hits and the time of the exercise are taken into account – the “hit factor” is applied.
MODULE 3 – “LONG RANGE”. In this module, shooting is conducted from stable positions at distances up to 1200 meters, points for hits and/or the “hit factor” are taken into account in the exercises.

The results are calculated by determining the highest score in each module, the rankings occur as a percentage of the best result. The winners will be determined and the places in each division of the final scorings will be distributed according to the sum of the results of each module M1+M2+M3.

The reliability of data on the positive hits of metal gongs in the entire shooting range up to 1200 meters, as well as moving targets will be provided by an automatic target hit identification system.

T-Class Kahles Cup 2021, Bulgaria

The annual T-Class Kahles Cup took place on April 16-18th 2021 at the shooting range of Slivnitsa, Bulgaria.

It was a three days and two nights shooting event in the T-Class Tactical Sniper discipline, which yet again highlighted the tradition of continuous improvement and elaboration, shown in every consequent T-Class competition, so far.

The T-Class Kahles Cup enlisted a total of 20 shooting stages in three Modules. There were 7 nighttime exercises, including cold-bore first shots at partially lightened targets, precision shots at paper and 3D targets in the dark, long-range smart-target midnight scenarios, laser illuminated targets, flashlight aimed hidden targets, etc.

In the daylight, there were other interesting stages, e.g. shooting at a Shot Marker target at 450m from tire racks with Hit factor, shooting of a tripod at 1000 m, dynamic style -supported and unsupported precision shooting, radio guided shooting, shooting from trenches, bunkers, terraces, windows, barricades, hedgehogs, moving target at 380 m, etc.

On top of these demanding shooting challenges, the weather conditions were not very friendly at all – temperatures from 1 to 4 C, winds varying from 3 to 7 m/s, continuous rainfall and thick mud.

This proved to be one of the toughest T-Class competitions ever, most difficult in nearly every aspect – from the complexity of the shooting scenarios, through the physical challenges of almost restless 72 hours contest and towards the mental confronts of adverse weather conditions.

However, all of the above could not break down the spirit of more than 20 competitors and a highly motivated team of Range Officers. All participants enjoyed the opportunity and the pleasure of enduring these remarkable three days.

This was a test to remember! It has been emotional…
