Censor.NET reports citing the State Border Service's press center.
As reported, this is how advanced assault groups, tasked with taking control from sea of strategically important objects (ports, waterworks, etc.) should act. An 8-strong assault group, wearing ultralight gear (wet suit, fins, mask), had to drop from a helicopter, stealthily get to a defined object using solely their sub-aqua skills and no special scuba equipment, and neutralize a watch crew without making noise. Apart from a diving knife, the trainees may count on their combat techniques in order to quickly destroy the enemy, leaving it no chance to call for help.
The assault team commander congratulated his fighters on their first air experience and noted that the participation in such a large-scale exercise will significantly upgrade their skills and expand the scope of the unit's application.
