Snipers of the combined arms formation of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, are preparing for the Sniper Frontier competition, which will be held within the framework of the International Army Games-2021.

Classes with snipers are held at the Borzya-Novaya training ground, which includes several areas for target shooting, as well as a specially equipped two-storey building for pair fire training and shooting from various positions.

The training of military personnel takes place in several stages.

At the first stage, they study the material part of the weapon, the sights and types of ammunition for it, the theoretical foundations of shooting and the features of ballistics in various weather conditions.

During the second stage, snipers, under the guidance of unit commanders, in the daytime and at night, in practice, learn to fire at targets located behind natural and artificial shelters.

In tactical and special training classes, military personnel improve the skills of covert movement and camouflage using service and improvised means, conducting reconnaissance of targets, determining ranges to them in various ways, as well as conducting and adjusting fire.

At the final stage of training, complex control exercises will take place, according to the results of which the most trained military personnel will be determined to participate in the district stage of the competition.

During training, servicemen use modern weapons – VSS Vintorez sniper rifles, ASVK army large-caliber rifles, as well as the latest rangefinders and thermal imagers.
