Snipers of the combined-arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed in the Amur Region, the Jewish Autonomy and the Khabarovsk Territory, improve their combat skills in shooting accuracy using non-standard targets – coins, trap dummies, as well as flying targets simulating reconnaissance UAVs.

Special attention is paid to the counter-sniper direction in the training of snipers of the association. That is why, for practicing target reconnaissance techniques, exposed coins are used, imitating the optical devices of a conventional enemy, as well as other techniques using elements characteristic of “enemy” snipers.

Shooting is carried out, both in simple and difficult weather conditions and terrain, from the standard weapons of the SVD and the ASVK sniper complex. Distances for firing a sniper rifle range from 100 meters to 1 kilometer, and the complex is used at a distance of about 1.5 kilometers. They practice shooting at aerial targets imitating small-sized reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicles.

In addition, snipers are improving camouflage techniques when equipping a firing position and movement methods. Particular attention is paid to camouflage from modern thermal imaging reconnaissance equipment and unmanned aircraft of a simulated enemy.
