Being capable of destroying or damaging high value targets on ranges beyond 1000m with accuracy and very cheap is extremly useful.

    Also targets of these rifles are quite specific, those are not the same targets that 100mm gun has.

    Right, a battalion level sniper platoon should be issued these for environments like these. I believe the correspondent US troops have battalion level sniper units and those guys have access to Barret .50 calibers.

    That's pretty good, you Serbs got nasty firepower if that's the case. In Donbas it's not weird to see PTRDs with units, those things can wreck treads of armored vehicles as well. I'd say anti-material rifles are worth it.

    Also on company lvl there is ABG-30 automatic grenade launcher detachment. On batallion lvl there is added Anti-tank platoon and fire support platoon with mortars.

    ORSIS T-5000 rifles go around the world

    Russian sniper rifles ORSIS T-5000 manufactured by OOO Promtehnologiya (Moscow) are armed with special forces of the People's Military Police of China in Xinjiang and the special purpose police department of the Public Security Directorate of the Ministry of Public Security of the People's Republic of China for Beijing.

    Iraqis have complained about the Fuck up that the Western guys are doing with their Marksmanship/sniping program. Apparently someone hasn't explained to NATO/Western military that zeroing the damn thing for the Russians is done at 400m (and the optics are made accordingly) while NATO buddies zero at 200/300 m which has led to some instructors talking crap about Orsis and SVD-S while Iraqis have found that the optics are GTG and rifle is fine when understood properly. There's a significant dicrepancy between the MilDot western scopes and the Dedals that were offered to Iraq. The French however (haha) use similar BDC optics and have found the Orsis to be very good value for the money. Which is understandable since a lot of them still qualify with FR-F2's.

    Also intruiging the chinese have accepted both 7.62 NATO and 7.62R as sniper rifles (CS-LR4 side by side with T5000).

    Game Changer': Russia Developing Next Generation Sniper Rifle

    Russia’s military sharpshooters will soon be getting a state-of-the-art sniper rifle, the director of the Central Research Institute for Precision Machine Building (TsNIITochMash), Dmitry Semizorov, told Sputnik.

    "By 2020 we are going to make sure that all our machine tools are ready to turn out a 100-percent Russian-made rifle,” Semizorov said, adding that the first batch of the new sniper rifles, aptly called Tochnost (Accuracy), will be supplied to the Federal Guard Service (FGS) this year.

    The new model is slated to become the main sniper weapon used by the Russian military and intelligence services.

    The Tochnost, a spinoff of the T-5000 rifle, uses conventional and armor-piercing rounds and is on par with the world’s best mass-produced sniper rifles available today.

    In an interview with Radio Sputnik, Mikhail Degtyarev, the editor-in-chief of the journal "Kalashnikov. Arms & Ammo," said that the designers of the new rifle worked in close contact with representatives of the military and special services.

    "While the FGS snipers gave the Tochnost their thumbs up, the military representatives were more finicky about the origin of the materials and parts it is made of. It is with these tougher demands in mind that the designers are now making sure that the Tochnost is a 100-percent Russian-made weapon, Degtyarev added.

    “The new sniper rifle gives credit to Russian arms and the Russian armed forces. Even though it is not going to phase out the sniper rifles currently in use, the Tochnost is a real game changer in the field of military sharpshooting,” Mikhail Degtyarev said.

    The Tochnost sniper rifle surpasses its predecessor in several key characteristics. It has a shooting range of over 2 kilometers, and its pinpoint accuracy ensures minimum deviation while maintaining distance.

    Low recoil, a convenient trigger mechanism, a special sight and, most importantly, a specially primed rifle barrel all ensure excellent accuracy.

    Russian company ORSIS upgraded legendary M1891/30 Mosin sniper rifle

    Russia`s ORSIS small arms manufacturing company has updated the legendary M1891/30 Mosin sniper rifle to the modern level. The enhanced firearm was unveiled at the MILEX 2017 defense show held from May 20-22 in Minsk, Belarus.


    ORSIS' upgraded M1891/30 Mosin sniper rifle
    (Credit: ORSIS)

    The sniper rifle was designated ORSIS-Mosin. The upgrade kit has been developed to increase the combat performance of the original firearm. Despite its age, the M1891/30 Mosin sniper rifle remains a popular one owing to a long barrel of high quality chambered for 7.62x54 mm cartridges.

    The ORSIS-Mosin sniper rifle has received a new modern metal stock with an adjustable folding buttstock. It has retained the original barrel, bolt assembly, non-detachable magazine and trigger. The updated rifle is fitted with a side mount for various modern sighting systems that increase the accuracy firing range and a plastic handguard in the lower part of the receiver. The ORSIS-Mosin is complemented by a tactical sound suppressor and a bipod. The rifle can be upgraded in the field workshops owing to the modularity of its construction.

    It should be noted that the ORSIS-Mosin does not fall short of modern rifles, despite the age of the original firearm. According to the official catalogue by the ORSIS company, the ORSIS-Mosin has a caliber of 7.62 mm, a weight of 5.8 kg, an overall length of 1,264 mm, a length in travel position of 982 mm, a barrel length of 730 mm, a muzzle velocity of 865 m/s, a cartridge capacity of 5 rounds and an accuracy firing range of 1,000 m. The rifle fires 7.62x54 mm cartridges. These specifications match the ones of the latest sniper firearms. For instance, the SV-98 bolt-action sniper rifle (the variant chambered for the 7.62x54 mm cartridges) has a caliber of 7.62 mm, a weight of 6.2 kg, an overall length of 1,270 mm, a length in travel position of 1,270 mm, a barrel length of 650 mm, a muzzle velocity of 830 m/s, a cartridge capacity of 10 rounds and the accuracy firing range of 1,000 m.

    Therefore, the ORSIS-Mosin sniper rifle seems to have a promising market outlook. One can allude to the 5-round non-detachable box magazine as an ineffective firearm feeding system; however, a number of sniper rifles developed by the leading small manufacturers - for instance, the M24 SWS (Sniper Weapon System, a 5-round non-detachable box magazine) and the M40A1/A3 (a 5-round non-detachable box magazine) ones by Remington Arms. The ORSIS-Mosin is believed to have improved drastically the well-known precision of the original sniper rifle owing to the integration of modern scopes, the ergonomic stock and the bipod.

    The Tula Arms Plant (TOZ, a subsidiary of the High-Precision Weapons holding) offers the civil variant of the M1891/30 Mosin sniper rifle designated KO 91-30. The KO 91-30 has a caliber of 7.62 mm, an accuracy firing range of 2,000 m, a cartridge capacity of 5 rounds, an overall length of 1,230 mm, a barrel length of 730 mm, a weight of 4.5 kg and a cartridge capacity of 5 rounds. The rifle fires 7.62x54 mm cartridges.

    Calibre. This is a 308 rifle. For various reasons they need to shoot it perfectly.
