DRAGUNOV SVD

The Dragunov sniper rifle SVD (Snayperskaya Vintovka Dragunova, literally "Dragunov's sniper rifle") is a semi-automatic sniper rifle/designated marksman rifle chambered in 7.62×54mmR and developed in the Soviet Union. The Dragunov was designed as a squad support weapon, since according to Soviet and Soviet-derived military doctrines the long-range engagement ability was lost to ordinary troops when submachine guns and assault rifles (which are optimized for close-range and medium-range, rapid-fire combat) were adopted. For that reason it was originally named "Dragunov's Semi-Automatic Rifle". Since 1963 the Dragunov has become the standard squad support weapon of several countries, including those of the former Warsaw Pact.
