MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Additional training in sniper training was provided to servicemen of the reconnaissance units of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Amur Region, Khabarovsk Territory and the Jewish Autonomy. A feature of the classes was training in the use of the capabilities of standard weapons at night and at ranges exceeding its usual use.
For several days, each scout studied the basics of ballistics and the amendments introduced when firing at maximum ranges.
In addition, the servicemen corrected each other’s actions in pairs. The range to the target was determined using laser rangefinders LPR-3.
As a result of the training, the scouts learned to confidently hit growth targets from automatic small arms at a distance of more than one kilometer.
More than 300 intelligence officers of the formation took a special course. For shooting, both modern modifications of Kalashnikov assault rifles and Dragunov sniper rifles, and special silent weapons AS Val and VSS Vintorez were used.
