Snipers of the motorized rifle unit of the Eastern Military District (VVO) stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, in the course of a practical lesson in the dark, improved their skills to defeat the manpower and equipment of a simulated enemy at the Borzya-Novaya training ground.
In particular, in the field, servicemen fired at targets imitating lightly armored wheeled vehicles and the mock enemy personnel in it at ranges of up to 1,000 meters.
When performing fire missions, special attention was paid to reconnaissance of targets and determining the range to them, conducting aimed fire from SVD sniper rifles at maximum distances from 300 to 1200 meters using optical sights, in various terrain conditions at night.
Also, snipers gained experience of covert movement and camouflage using service and improvised means, learned to select and equip positions, use various observation and aiming devices, hit targets and adjust fire.
In addition, the servicemen of the rifle company of snipers completed the task of overcoming the contaminated area of the terrain using personal protective equipment, and also worked out the tasks of providing medical assistance to the conditionally wounded with their further evacuation from the “battlefield”.
