A new sniper weapons system has been developed in the Russian Federation
Army special forces, intelligence forces, and paratroopers will have new sniper weapons soon. Dmitry Rogozin spoke about this during his visit to the KBP Instrument Design Bureau in Tula, Interfax reported on Saturday.
Rogozin noted that these systems were built on the foundations of the developments made by the KBP under the leadership of Arkadiy Shipunov, who died on the 25th April. “If we do this, and we’ll do this rather quickly, you will find out about it, and you will be glad that Shipunov’s work lives on”, he said.
Rogozin did not say which weapons he was talking about specifically, and did not add any additional information.
Rogozin also said that the state defence budget may also include floating bulletproof vests. Approximately 1,500 of these bulletproof vests that perform a number of rescue functions are already in use by the coastal forces of the Navy, but the marines need approximately 5,500, according to General Major Alexander Kolpachenko.

Rogozin‘s a loudmouth. One of many.
You don’t need to be upset that our “army special forces, intelligence forces, and paratroopers will have new sniper weapons soon”. Unless you think that they’re going to be aimed at you personally, then you can get upset, obviously :)

It’s just I hear the phrase “in the near future, our xxx will receive new yyys”. I prefer a different phrase: “our xxx have receive 100% of the new yyys they needed.”
It’s just Rogozin doing PR

You’re saying it as though it’s a bad thing. In the West, they do nothing but PR.
It looks just like a plastic toy … there’s not even a trigger

I didn’t even notice – that means it’s just a model to demonstrate the scope’s effectiveness :-)
We’ll have everything one day, gents
