Moscow riot police - one day on the range
Employees of the Moscow riot police regularly undergo mandatory training at the suburban site. Refresh shooting skills granatometaniya, coaching tactics. One of these studies was able to visit the "watering can and a notebook." For which I express my sincere gratitude for staff members, the press service of the Moscow police SPC.
For 16 years, twice a year a detachment of fighters of special purpose of the Center is leaving on a business trip to the Caucasus. During this period, consolidated groups performed the tasks in the republics of Dagestan, Karachaevo-Cherkessia, Ingushetia and North Ossetia, as well as in various localities of Chechnya: Grozny and Samashki, Achkhoy-Martan, Katyr--Yurt, Shali.
In 1995-96, more than a thousand soldiers Center (then - riot police) took part in the disarmament of armed groups, and the restoration of constitutional order in the Chechen Republic - the storming of Grozny, the military operations for the liberation of the militants in Argun, n. n Samashki Bamut, hazel.; blocking of the Achkhoy-Martan district. n Gehi-Chu Roshni-Chu.; performing special tasks in Argun and Gudermes.
From August 1999 to present, special-purpose Center staff to perform combat tasks in the framework of the counter-terrorist operation in the North Caucasian region: the protection of critical facilities, the release of the hostages, disarmament activities of members of illegal armed groups, search and arrest criminals who are in federal search, support columns with military and humanitarian supplies, disposal of ammunition and explosives.
Departure from Moscow at the SPC site was scheduled for early in the morning, this time in Moscow there are no traffic jams. Convoy of several specially equipped KAMAZ vehicles, armored "Tiger" and buses, accompanied by police car, get to your destination quickly enough. The coming day promised was interesting: cold, wet, windy, dark, and the snow up to his waist. Everything I love! While the men were preparing to exercise, we were talking about the payment for the work of Sergeant riot on a business trip. It turned out that for 6 months in the Caucasus fee will be about 120-150 thousand. For all 6 months. Of the money necessary to buy socks, underwear, and if you want, it is still something of additional power for himself. It turns out as something really quite a bit. Faint hope was some "mayoral" bonuses, but whether such - nobody really knew. If so, would be approximately 50-60 thousand rubles, which is the whole picture, I think, does not change.
All the staff went to a designated training sites. In the first trained in shooting from personal handguns - pistols. In the arsenal of OMON and Makarov pistols Yarygin. About PCOS, by the way, nothing alarming not talk, they say, a normal gun misfires and delays any more than any other. Miracles.
Automatic weapons have virtually all the staff, but the AK-hundredth series, as I have explained, armed with those of riot police, who are to serve in the ranks of the so-called "storm troopers". The rest, guarding the perimeter of an operation or performing the usual functions of public order, armed with machine guns easier - AKMS, for example.
After shooting a compulsory inspection of weapons, only then it is possible for the team to come to the targets and enjoy the results of the shooting.
The following platforms are designed for machine gunners exercises. It is held close to the training of armored police special truck "Tiger".
In the armed police detachment consolidated quite a lot of various weapons: pistols, various machine guns caliber 5.45 and 7.62, sniper rifles SVD and SCD "Vintorez", grenade launchers, RPGs, machine guns of various modifications. Of the samples are rarely found me note 7.62 mm RPK RPK with a drum magazine with 75 rounds. This store was only one gunner, the other used a pie shops on 40 rounds.
A lot of attention was paid to narabatyvaniya practice among employees and technology. The essence of the sessions with the participation of the "Tiger": a group of 8 people with weapons and ammunition loaded into the armored troop compartment. Heavy groups with weapons at the ready monitors the situation through the top hatch. At the command of the senior classes (which group hears in the car), several different targets are raised at the site on which the gunner has to open fire.
After opening the machine gunner fire the machine slows down and the soldiers planted through the back door, taking positions and firing at targets. After the defeat of the target employee should move under cover of armored housing "Tiger" and as a group to get out of a possible fire.
Snow at the site, of course, no one cleans (or rather clean, but not to the extent where wielded "Tiger"), because the driver had not easy.
In the troop compartment "Tiger" eight armed men place was not so and easy.
Sniper group, armed with a sniper rifle SVD with a portable thermal imaging device targeting and monitoring "GRANITE-E." The device is a highly advanced tool-clock all-weather surveillance and targeting, and is designed to address the anti-terrorist and special tasks. In obshchegrazhdanskogo the embodiment is effective night hunting. Purpose: search for a target object; tracking the detected object; work in the presence of flame and smoke; inspection areas; control of the terrain (security); conducting covert surveillance; use of different units of law enforcement agencies.
Some time armored "Tiger" drove on snow-covered terrain, as long as the car did not carry a pair of wheels in some invisible under a layer of snow ditch. North belly on layers of packed snow, the car lost its driving performance. Attempts to push multi-ton armored car by hand, of course, the desired result failed. Because the aid was caused by standing near KAMAZ, who decided to hitch has arisen in a few minutes.
All "Tiger" successfully rescued from snow captivity, it is possible to continue studies.
Some employees, as seen in the pictures, the role of Gamache performs adhesive tape. In combat conditions, as explained, the issue of countering snow in tamping shoes solved the same way.
Pay attention to the bandage, which shook the entire optical sight, including the front lens.
group of fighters trained by coherence, taking cover behind a vehicle hulls.
Usually training took place in two stages: the first - "idle", without shooting and target, the second - "fighting" with the shooting, crashing and flying sleeves. Sleeve after school, by the way, we were collected and taken to the boxes back.
A few hours in the cold and the wind is not easy to move. I save some tea and reading a magazine "Officers of Russia", who took without asking my next batch of pictures. Getting used.
Another group of riot police received a briefing before going to practice shooting.
soldier in yellow gloves, waiting their turn to practice, stoically endured thoughtful photographs deftly answered a couple of questions after then he asked me for a notebook.
Notepad I was not there, but found a block of sticky notes post-it, it was he who went to the affair.
It is quietly from his pocket brochure, prove upon closer examination of the RF Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as a few colored pens, policeman began scribbling some signs on the yellow leaves. If the style of writing appropriate to designate adjectives "fast" and "fluent", they think, will be the most suitable. The fact that the man in yellow gloves mirror writing. Clearly, more and right to left. And with his left hand, while left-handed and is not.
In the original, it looked like that. Below otzerkalenny option for easy reading option. Blurred area - telephone fighter.
He is preparing to become a psychologist, and to train both hemispheres of the brain develops here are letters of methods, for example. In addition, collect different quotes of famous people, many such quotations knows by heart, and regularly replenish its collection by reading many books on very different topics.
While I was admiring a rare ability, Gunners packed disc cartridge, and granatomotnom site instructor explained the staff rules of shooting from the grenade launcher.
Shots for RPG-7 were inert, ie. E. The target is flying disc with inert warhead. The purpose served and a few old pieces of shot APC. Hit the target causing biting metallic click, and has carved out a sheaf purpose perfectly visible sparks.
Granatomotchik was made to fire, the assistant helped him load the gun and was preparing to fire a shot after an imaginary enemy automatic weapons.
Shot RPG rather loud, the instructor encouraged to observe close ears and open your mouth.
After it came to an RPG grenade grenade. There were also inert grenades.
First, personnel fired at a distance of 170-220 meters, emphasizing the butt machine with grenade launcher on the shoulder.
Later, the instructor has shown how it is possible to shoot from under-barrel grenade launcher canopy emphasizing a rifle butt into the ground or snow. This shooting is useful if you need to hit the target, shelters, for example, the terrain or throw VOG for the house, for example. Notice how under the influence of recoil butt goes back smorzshegosya, heavy compacted snow.
The last stage of the school day - granatometanie. The goal flew RGN grenades. RGN - offensive hand grenade, antipersonnel fragmentation shock remote. It is designed to engage manpower in the battle. The radius of destruction by grenade fragments - 15 meters, the radius of possible defeat - 35 meters.
Special mention deserve the actions of the crew of traffic police in charge of wiring column OMON evening through a standard plug on the Ring Road. Cleverly, carefully, to say politely, to overtake stationary vehicles of angry citizens, it is, of course, the skill needed. And, of course, looked surprisingly citizens instantly pulled from beneath the clothes mobile phones and get to the photo-shooting video OMON convoy of cars. Curiosity, apparently!
