"Sniper's work is not just about getting into position, making a shot and that's it. Sometimes one shot can be awaited for more than a day. We take everything with us - sleeping bags, ammunition, weapons, surveillance devices: binoculars, range-finders, weather stations, food rations," says a marine sniper with call sign Tatarin.
A spotter, the second number in a sniper pair, has no less work.
"I have to measure everything - air pressure, air temperature, its humidity, the direction and speed of the wind. Everything counts, up to gunpowder temperature in a shell. You have to secure the sniper's safety," says marine with call sign Riko.
