MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

Modern approaches to the training of snipers are used in motorized rifle formations of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District, stationed on the territory of the Amur Region, the Jewish Autonomy and the Khabarovsk Territory. Servicemen are trained in “blind” shooting, and various game techniques are used to improve their combat skills.

The developed method of “blind” shooting shows high efficiency. The soldier detects a moving target, which is periodically hidden by obstacles. The shooter needs to calculate a lot of corrections and make a shot in a limited time at the expected location of the target with the aiming point offset. Silhouettes of conditional terrorists, observation devices of armored vehicles and other dynamic targets are used as targets, the destruction of which is carried out as a matter of priority.

In addition, in the course of the training, the servicemen practice sniper “duels”, high-speed shooting exercises and hitting ultra-small targets by the glare of the sun. Coins or ping-pong balls are used as such targets. Distances for hitting such targets start from 100 meters, as the course is mastered, they can be removed up to 500 meters.

In total, about 150 snipers are involved in the training. Classes are held day and night using night vision devices.
