Special training in survival and combat in mountainous areas with cadets of the Eastern Military District’s sniper school took place at a combined-arms training ground in the Khabarovsk Territory.

During the exercise, young snipers, as part of the groups, moved to the indicated area, where, according to preliminary data, a field camp of a conditional enemy was deployed.

The servicemen conducted a passing reconnaissance of the area from observation “points” in the trees.

When the location of the mock enemy was found, the snipers made a descent down the mountain slope, using special climbing equipment, silently neutralizing the “enemy” sentries, providing the main sniper group with unobstructed approaches to the camp, and the subsequent elimination of the “terrorists”.

Particular attention was paid to the coherence of military personnel, the correct choice of firing positions on hard-to-reach rocky peaks and passes, camouflage taking into account the relief and climatic conditions, as well as the preparation of false positions to mislead a conventional enemy.

In addition, the cadets worked out the issues of competent reconnaissance and determining the range to targets and accurately hitting targets simulating the manpower of the “enemy” at long distances.
