As part of the control exercises of combat training, servicemen of a separate sniper unit of the motorized rifle formation of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, will work out special tasks for hitting invisible targets at night for a week. Classes will be held at the Borzya-Novaya training ground.

During the training, snipers will demonstrate professional skills in fire, tactical, special, and engineering training. Combat training missions will be worked out as part of sniper groups and pairs, which is the basis for organizing actions in the tactical command echelon. It should be noted that in order to develop attentiveness and reaction for military snipers, unit commanders will periodically create a new tactical environment, with many introductory tasks.

In practice, the servicemen will conduct reconnaissance of the area, show the ability to quickly navigate in a given area in the dark. Also, the commanders, in the course of the training, will evaluate the skills of subordinates in personal and collective camouflage using local materials and competent actions in the development of reference schemes, fire damage, as well as escape routes.

During the week, the sniper division will carry out about twenty training and control firing exercises using night vision scopes.
