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

    Special attention is paid to camouflage using improvised and natural means, the use of modern rangefinders, weather stations, radio stations, intelligence, control and communication complexes.

    Also, sniper pairs have 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 a sniper to quickly calculate a lot of corrections in order to make an accurate shot at the intended place of the enemy’s appearance.

    In lack of bipod, use your hand.

    Welcome back tomorrow for another run of our Photo Of The Day. We’re always on the lookout for the best firearms related images out there, with the goal to give your eyes something worth watching every day.
