The Russian Ministry of Defense has released as series of pictures depicting a counter-sabotage “exercise” where terrorist frogmen attack one of their North Fleet submarines’ support infrastructure. Some of which are right out of your favorite over-the-top ‘80s action movie.
Guns up! The frogmen in the picture above are toting seldom-seen APS underwater assault rifles. They fire self-contained rocket-like 5.66mm X 120mm dart cartridges, 26 of which ares stuffed in those huge banana magazines. The only downside is that they have an effective range of about 50 yards, but they are probably far less accurate at even that range than a standard 5.45X30 Russian assault rifle cartridge.
