Sniper units of the motorized rifle formation of the Eastern Military District, during training at the training ground stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, organized an ambush on a convoy of lightly armored vehicles of a simulated enemy.

The servicemen have worked out the skills of reconnaissance and long-term camouflage on the ground. Having received the coordinates of the mobile group of the mock enemy from the reconnaissance subdivisions, with the help of large-caliber rifles 12.7 mm ASVK “Kord” snipers disabled the main units of the vehicles and stopped the advance of the column. A feature of training for snipers was the development of ways to arrange long ambushes in conditions of low temperatures currently prevailing in Transbaikalia.

After successfully completing the tasks, the servicemen performed firing practice, where they hit targets at distances of up to 1000 meters, and also conducted training in finding and destroying single enemy snipers.

In total, more than 50 snipers of a motorized rifle unit of the Air Defense Forces were involved in the classes.
