The prime unit in Russia is considered to be the FSB Alpha Group. The Alpha group shooting drills are insane and they aren’t even similar to their Western counterparts like Delta Force or Seal Team 6. The shooting drills are expected to build up your confidence, improve your marksmanship, to connect you to the tool, in this particular situation the gun you use. But, it’s not meant to have you injured or even killed. In the part of the training of Special Operations Forces, Russian training differentiates than as it is used by Special Operations Forces in Western countries.
Here you can see unconventional training drills, or I could call it insane and dangerous drills. You will see operators shooting at each other with live ammunition, rolling towards tanks, ducking while being shoot at from machine guns. But, still, it is hard to explain until you saw it by yourself.
Russian Alpha Group shooting drills
They actually shoot real ammo at each other, hope their body armor holds, and the guy that got hit returns fire within inches of the guys that shot him into the paper targets behind the shooters. They also push the trainee and yell while he’s moving and shooting and they even discharge live rounds next to his ear or behind him while he is practicing his drills. You really got to know what you are doing.
