The world's longest-range sniper rifle was deployed in Ukraine

The weapon, which can hit the target at a distance of more than 2 kilometers, was deployed near Kyiv.

The “super long-range” Sumrak sniper rifle was used for the first time by Russian soldiers in Ukraine, the Russian news agency TASSZ reported citing a security source. The snipers belonging to the special units have already used the weapon near Kyiv and in the Kharkiv region of eastern Ukraine, but “rarely” because they did not always manage to find suitable terrain, the source said. No official confirmation of the information has been received – added the news agency. According to the manufacturer, the SVLK-14S Sumrak, a single-shot bolt-action weapon designed by the Russian company Lobaev Arms in 2012, can effectively hit targets at a distance of up to 2,700 meters.In 2020, the British Daily Mirror newspaper described the 10 kilogram Sumrak as “the world’s deadliest sniper rifle”, noting that it has nearly twice the range of the British Army’s L115A3 sniper rifle.Yury Shinichkin, chief engineer of the manufacturing company, told the newspaper: “This weapon is made piece by piece, just like a Ferrari or Porsche, for people who appreciate high-precision weapons, as well as for professional snipers”.A 408-inch Cheyenne Tactical shoots a bullet out of the barrel at 900 meters per second, almost three times the speed of sound.According to Sinichkin, no bulletproof vest protects against it. In 2017, a bullet fired from Sumrak traveled 4,210 meters before hitting a target at a shooting range in Russia, which is said to be a world record.
