On these pictures you may see Russian Special Mission Units doing tactical exercises. These brave men can safely be called the pride of Russia.
These exercises lasted 3 days and included the enemy bases detection, their complete destruction and training of the actions when both being ambushed and making the ambush. As an enemy there was another group of soldiers.
The alert sounded at 5 a.m. and the soldiers quickly took their things, got on the special bus and left.
There were a lot of arms – 2 or 3 guns for each soldier. There were pistols, submachine guns, grenades and grenade launchers. Cartridges were more than enough.
They also took sleeping bags, food, water, underwear, knives, first-aid kit and other necessary things. As a result each of them carried a huge knapsack on the back.
The most important arm is considered to be pistols, because first of all they are intended for defense.
