UsesEdit

First constructed in 1963 by the Soviet Union, the Dragunov is widely used in Russia and a number of former Warsaw Pact countries. It is unique in that it was not meant for use by highly trained and specialized sniper teams, but for designated marksmen, spread in every basic infantry unit. Also, in order to fire effective API ammunition, its accuracy potential was downgraded slightly by shortening the twist rate, an uncommon priority in a pure sniper rifle. As a result, its precision, while still good, is not the best by sniper rifle standards. However its AK-47-like design allows it to be mass produced and durable, making it a favorite among undeveloped countries. It has been used in many conflicts in South-East Asia, Africa and the Middle East and has been updated by different nations like China and Iran.

In showEdit

In Green Beret vs SpetsnazEdit

The Dragunov and M24 were tested on multiple targets. The Dragunov missed its targets by at least an inch to either side, while the M24 hit all its targets right in the center. The M24 took the advantage due to its greater accuracy.

In Back for Blood Special (Spetsnaz vs IRA)Edit

This weapon was paired against the the IRA's HK G3. While both weapons had high kill ratios, the Dragunov was deemed faster and more accurate in terms of execution and given the edge.
