The Russian team, which arrived in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam to participate in the international stage of the “Sniper Frontier” competition ARMI-2021, after bringing the small arms to normal combat, began training exercises of the competition.

Servicemen use standard weapons: 7.62-mm SVD sniper rifles with standard day and night sights, Makarov PM pistols, AK-74 Kalashnikov assault rifles.

During training, snipers perform various exercises, such as “Find yours”, in which the shooters of a pair of snipers take positions for shooting at different firing positions; “Catch up” – the sniper hits targets for a while; “Interaction” – in a sniper pair, one shooter fires from the PM, and the other from the SVD; “Shooting from a partner” – shooting using the second number of the sniper pair as a support for the rifle; “Hunting” – the sniper strikes only his own color of targets.

Training takes place in climatic conditions unusual for the Russian team: the daytime air temperature at the training ground near the city of Hanoi (Vietnam) reaches over 35 degrees with a plus mark and a humidity of 99%.
