MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the suburbs of Moscow, at the Alabino training ground, special classes were held on the training of snipers of the Taman motorized rifle division of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District (ZVO).
The servicemen inflicted covert strikes on the manpower of the conditional enemy at distances from 500 to 1,000 meters. At the same time, the snipers had to covertly take a firing position and disguise themselves taking into account the terrain. The undetected servicemen received a “credit” at this stage of the training.
Combat firing was carried out from 7.62-mm Dragunov sniper rifles (SVD) in the daytime and at night using day and night observation and aiming devices.
In total, more than 80 servicemen of the Taman Motorized Rifle Division of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District took part in the training.
