In the Ulyanovsk Guards airborne assault formation of the Airborne Forces, a field training session with snipers began, in which more than 50 servicemen take part. The gathering includes both newly appointed military personnel and experienced paratroopers.

The training camp takes place at the Polyvno training ground under the guidance of officer-instructors of a rifle company of snipers with combat experience.

Servicemen will practice firing techniques from various positions, practice hitting targets without a sighting shot, and use available means to camouflage firing positions, including on terrain without natural shelters.

Under the guidance of experienced instructors, servicemen will work out methods of countering enemy snipers, counter-sniper combat techniques used by special forces, taking into account the experience of modern armed conflicts.

During the training, snipers will improve the skills of equipping false firing positions, covert movement over rough terrain, shooting with long-range adjustment in wind conditions, and also learn how to act in case of a sudden meeting with the enemy.

At the stage of firing practice, servicemen will hit targets moving and at the maximum distance, and also practice actions as part of sniper pairs.
