In Dagestan, combat swimmers of the special task force for combating submarine sabotage forces and means (PDSS) of the Caspian Flotilla (CFL) performed practical firing under water from special weapons.

The servicemen practiced training tasks on the basis of a modern training complex (UTK). Before diving into the water, combat swimmers were equipped with diving equipment with standard underwater small arms with ammunition, as well as a depth gauge, a knife, a compass and a clock.

At a maximum depth of more than 10 m, combat swimmers improved their shooting skills underwater from a standstill and in motion at stationary and moving targets at a distance of up to 20 m. Also, the servicemen determined the distance to the underwater target, its speed of movement and set the aiming point in accordance with the data. The firing exercises were carried out from the APS and SPP-1 underwater weapons at special targets representing a growth, head and moving target. The combat swimmers hit the targets with single shots in diving equipment for walking on the ground and in short bursts from a position, standing on the ground with their hands.

The training activities were carried out as part of the training course for PDSS units with strict adherence to safety measures during firing and diving descents.

The subdivision for combating submarine sabotage forces and means performs combat training tasks to ensure the protection of ships and vessels of the flotilla at the base of the KFL.

The PDSS KFl detachment is armed with high-speed boats and boats, modern samples of diving equipment, hydroacoustic devices and special weapons for conducting combat both on land and under water.
