Default Absolutely Nuts: Russian Military Training Video Shows Intense Shooting Tactics

I love this training concept!

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/03/17/absolutely-nuts-russian-military-training-video-shows-intense-shooting-tactics/

A tactical weapons expert interviewed Russian military operators and filmed some of their insane training techniques — including shooting each other in the chest.

The video captured slow-motion video of bullets whizzing by the trainers’ heads and entering bulletproof vests as the participants are wearing them.

Interesting and instructive. This one's for real. The handgun used by Andry looks like the Grach ("Rook"), a Russian-made Glock derivative. (Glock-fanboy-bashers, take a mental note)

As the host indicated, these practitioners are more disposable than their US counterparts. The least of their future troubles will be a permanent hearing loss.

Russians were always nuts when it came to training in the military doesn't necessarily mean squat though when faced with our lean green machines in the army and marines and our flyboys and navy guys we would destroy them in conventional warfare and unconventional warfare only problem is nukes

I didn't understand the whole shoot at the ground while pushing the guys back. I know these are Russians and all, but for real the guy was shooting his firearm at the ground while looking up at the other guy. He could have hit someone or feet!!

It is good to remember also, this is not a private video shoot. I have no doubt it was sanctioned, if not initiated, by the KGB. There is no way Larry Vickers could just invite himself to a Russian Spetznaz practice. This is sophisticated propaganda, with a touch of intimidation. Nobody wants to tussle with a crazy guy, right? It caught attention, we are discussing it - mission accomplished.

No matter how well conditioned physically, they are mentally conditioned by their society to act in their own best interest. The post Soviet Russian society is cut throat, the weak don't survive. Everyone for themselves.

So far, when it came to real counterterrorist operations, the results were mediocre. The incidents are well known.
