Russian Combat Swimmers Underwater Training in Crimea

    Check out this new video of Russian Special Forces training underwater in Crimea posted by the state funded news agency Russia Today. It looks like they’re using an underwater SPP-1 pistol and APS underwater rifle.┬áThe SPP-1 pistol has a max of range of just 56 feet at a depth of just 16 feet. The APS underwater rifle fairs better at 98 feet at a depth of 16 feet.

    From the videos description:

    Combat Swimmers from Russia’s Black Sea Fleet took part in drills in Sevastopol, Thursday, focused on defending the fleet from underwater saboteurs.

    Your can see more of the SPP-1 pistol and APS rifle in the video below.
