In the suburbs of Moscow at the “Golovenki” training ground, control exercises were held on the training of snipers of the Kantemirovskaya tank division of the Guards Tank Red Banner Army of the Western Military District.

During the training, the servicemen inflicted covert strikes at targets imitating the manpower of a conventional enemy at a distance of 400 to 1200 meters. Also, snipers had to take a firing position and disguise themselves taking into account the terrain.

Combat firing was carried out from 7.62-mm Dragunov sniper rifles (SVD) and 12.7 mm army sniper rifles of large-caliber ASVK in the daytime and at night using day and night observation and aiming devices.

In total, about 50 servicemen of the Kantemirovskaya tank division of the ZVO tank association took part in the training.
