    In Crimea, a counter-sniper unit with Lobaev rifles is being formed, by Oleg Koryakin for Rossiskaya Gazeta. 01.21.2023

    A counter-sniper unit is being created in Crimea, which will work in the NMD on the basis of the "fire brigade" principle. This was reported on the air of the TV channel "Crimea 24".

    A unit is being formed on the basis of the 165 training center on the initiative of the head of the region Vasily Aksenov and with the participation of the famous gunsmith Vladislav Lobaev.

    “This will allow combatant units that for some reason did not take care of acquiring high-precision modern sniper weapons or were unable to organize training, or did not have time, to receive such counter-sniper services, so to speak,” Vladislav Lobaev explained. “The unit will carry out tasks in the hottest sectors of the front, where the activity of enemy snipers is very high."

    He specified that the unit will be armed with the full range of sniper rifles that his company manufactures.

    Recall that Lobaev's ultra-long-range and high-precision rifles are extremely in demand in the NVO zone. They allow you to deal great damage to the enemy.

    The most productive sniper with the call sign "Yaryy", who destroyed more than 100 fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, uses the SVLK-14S "Dusk" rifle.

    That is a great news, as Lobaevs guns showed that they are in class of their own during the war.
