During an intensive course of combat training at the Borzya Novaya training ground, servicemen of a rifle unit of snipers of a motorized rifle unit stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory worked out the skills of high-speed shooting from sniper rifles.

Under the guidance of officers and more experienced military personnel, over 100 snipers underwent a special course in high-speed shooting from the SV-98 rifle and the Dragunov sniper rifle. Moreover, more than 50% of the classes took place in the dark. The trainings were carried out both singly and as part of sniper pairs.

In addition to firepower training, servicemen improved their tactical training, making covert transitions over long distances, silently bypassing conditional outposts, checkpoints and secrets in order to eliminate the commanders of “enemy” units.

Also, during the training, snipers paid great attention to camouflage – after eliminating the assigned targets, snipers “disappeared” using the terrain features.

The training of military personnel was organized in a competitive form: several sniper pairs performed one task at once.
