In 2003 the brigade was dislocated to the former radioprotection academy in Tambov. Some auditoria were converted to living rooms. Today almost every officer has an accommodation. There are two 3-storey buildings for families and a hostel for bachelors where basically young officers live. But it also possible to rent an apartment in the town. Soldiers live in barracks.

The main problem is that the whole complex is too old, so it needs repairing. Thus occurs 2 question – where to get money and where to settle the soldiers. For example, 6 people died in the fire of 2009 in one of the old buildings. It was caused by the short circuit. There is no use repairing the building. The strength of the structure is up in the air. Thus the brigade has no club and meeting hall.

    • One should use the best weapon available if possible that one looks like a very well made Remington 700 the M24 or M40 in US service elite US units also use HS Precision 700s in .300 Win Mag or Lapua .338 two highly accurate and lethal rounds.

  1. Why on earth would a sniper want to use a rifle with a shiny stainless steel barrel like the one on the Sako? –Doesn’t that detract from a sniper’s ability to conceal themself?

    Also, yeah, what is that thing on the Abakan?

  2. Most times when in the field snipers will paint the stock and barrel an earthy color and often they will attach strips of materiel around the barrel and scope much like the ghillie suit for the body.A good sniper is as skilled at blending in with the surrounding environment and making natural shapes disappear.Even a slight change in grass color can stand out to a trained eye and a sniper must be good enough to avoid getting sighted by another sniper with equally skilled eyes.

    And the large “thing” on the AN-94 is an older style night sight it would look shades of green in the eye piece it is just like night vision goggles just a little larger and designed with aiming a weapon in mind rather than merely improving night vision as the goggles do.

  3. I think I’ve found the ultimate collection of tactical poser dbags. View and weep
