At the military base of the Southern Military District (YuVO) in Armenia, the preparation of the military personnel of the sniper unit for participation in the qualifying stage of the competition of the international army games of 2022 “Sniper Frontier” has begun.

Experienced instructors train snipers as part of sniper pairs and groups at the Kamkhud training ground in the choice of targets and the rules for individual aiming from Dragunov (SVD) and Vintorez (VSS) sniper rifles with corrections for high and low atmospheric pressure, side wind and temperature.

Particular attention is paid to camouflage using improvised and natural means, the use of modern rangefinders, weather stations, radio stations, reconnaissance, control and communications complexes.

Also, sniper pairs worked out “blind” shooting, which involves firing at a target that is in motion and periodically hides behind obstacles. In this case, it is important for the sniper to quickly calculate many corrections in order to make an accurate shot at the intended place of the enemy’s appearance.
