Snipers of the 49th Combined Arms Army of the Southern Military District (YuVO) in the Stavropol Territory, Karachay-Cherkessia and Abkhazia have begun preparations for the Sniper Frontier competition of the International Army Games 2022.

At the Nagvalou, Nikolo-Aleksandrovsky and Kobu-Bashi ranges, the servicemen performed various firing missions, for example, the challenging “cold shot” exercise – sniper shooting at a distance of 100 m from an unprepared Dragunov rifle at a target the size of a tennis ball, as well as shooting at a distance of 500 m on a chest target for the maximum number of hits.

In fire training classes, snipers performed more than 30 control firing exercises, including in the dark with the use of night sights, hitting targets at distances from 100 to 800 m.

Particular attention was paid to knowledge of the tactics of action as part of sniper pairs and groups, camouflaging positions for shooting with the help of improvised means.

The best snipers will take part in the second stage of the competition among the most trained riflemen of military units of the 49th combined-arms army of the Southern Military District at the Nikolo-Aleksandrovsky training ground in the Stavropol Territory.
