|“||The OTs-03 SVU also known as Sniper Rifle Shortened is a bullpup configuration of the SVD sniper rifle. The SVU was developed to meet the needs of the security forces of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, such as OMON. A special muzzle brake was added that could absorb up to 40% of the recoil energy and an elastic butt stock with lamellar spring was non-rigidly attached to the receiver. The acoustics of the rifle were also improved by adding a sound suppressor. The other main improvements made to the SVU over the SVD include replacement of the butt stock, pistol grip, trigger and the mounting for the sight; and shortening the barrel by 100 mm achieved perfect balance for the weapon.||”|
|— Item Description|
The SVU-AS is a Sniper Rifle.
The SVU-AS is a unique fully-automatic sniper rifle. The gun has extremely low damage for a sniper weapon, often times requiring a third shot to kill enemies; the accuracy when aiming is also very poor, and bullets will often spread beyond the center of the scope during longer, sustained bursts. This is offset by an extremely high rate of fire and large magazine capacity, with its tactical capabilities rivaling that of an assault rifle.
It has features two unique attachments; the SVU-AS Bipod (Released) which reduces recoil and sway whilst prone; and the SVU-AS Bipod (Collapsed) which reduces spread while not prone and decreases both the select and deselect duration.
