This video is of Russian 2 man basic maneuvers being trained.
Very basic fire-and-maneuver stuff.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL5Fwflm ... r_embedded
A point of interest is that the one firing gives the order to the other guy to move.
"pashol" is yelled by the one that opens fire, telling the other guy roughly translated 'go'
They also seem to run serpentine between each fire position.

I don't know what they are doing when the AK is in the stand and the tiny target is moved around. Maybe Sasha can fill us in.

Pretty cool video, I also find it interesting we see alot of people using the AKS74U which we don't see as much anymore.

I noticed that too. But I wrote it off because I believe this is like boot camp. And you know how that is, new guys usually get crap the older guys don't want. Like basic in USA has M16A2s being used. And I'm sure you'll find some 16A1s even. I think in Poland the guys in basic get AKMs/AKMS' while the guys deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan were issued Beryls. Though, Pols sent to Israel had AKMS'

Of course, they could also be specialists. Perhaps RPG gunners, or assistant gunners, or AGS17 gunners or assistant gunners. Though I think it is not the best idea for the to practice with out their special kit. But When you're covering the basics I guess you only need the basic items.

That was very interesting to watch. I think the part with the tiny target and the braced/clamped weapon had something to do with zeroing the sights, or range estimation. I know on the M4/M16 series, you can zero your iron sights for 25 meters, and as the bullet rises and eventually falls over distance, you will have roughly the same point of impact at 300 meters as you do at 25. I have read in some field manuals of a sight picture exercise, to get troops used to seeing what a man sized target should look like through their sights with different sized targets.

Then again the training could have been something like "This is the furthest your weapon will reach. If your target is smaller than this, move closer!"

First part is a basic "get used to shooting" exercize. Tirgets are not standard, so it's means that precision is not a main goal of it but of coarce encoraged. AKSU isued to RPG gunner or drivers or sometimes radio operators. But because its a basics, those items are not needed to be issued for that day. Clamped AK used for zeroing, where second guy being told by first guy where he was aiming. Secong guy attached black target to the list, marks it and coralate that location to the center on paper marked with zero.
