In the Baltic Fleet, snipers from formations and military units of the Army Corps of the Navy have begun preparations for the second stage of the Sniper Frontier field training competition for sniper units, which will be held within the framework of the International Army Games – 2021.

During the competition, servicemen practice hitting targets without a sighting shot and using improvised means to camouflage firing positions, including on terrain without natural shelters.

At the stage of the competition, special attention is paid to the issues of reconnaissance of targets and determining the range to them, conducting aimed fire from SVD and SVD-S sniper rifles at distances from 500 to 1300 meters in various conditions, day and night, as well as correcting fire using observation and aiming devices …

The final stage will be a 3-kilometer march, during which snipers will demonstrate their skills in terrain orientation. At the final point of the route, they will have to show their ability to hit the manpower of a conditional enemy at extremely long distances.

More than 50 snipers take part in this stage, among which there are both experienced military personnel under contract with sufficient experience, and novice snipers.
