is a modern version of the SVD with a folding buttstock for airborne and special operations units.
The SVDSSVDS SNIPER RIFLE is designed to engage enemy personnel and other unarmored targets at ranges up to 800 m.
It features reliable gas-operated action with a short-stroke piston and gas regulator.
It is different from the SVD in having all wooden parts replaced with plastic ones, a folding skeletonized buttstock with a removable cheek riser to make using scopes easier, and a pistol grip that is no more an integral part of the buttstock.
Any type of 7,62x54R rounds can be used for firing the SVDS, but the best accuracy is achieved with special sniper cartridges.
Scopes or night-vision sights can be mounted on a side rail on the receiver.
The rifle has backup iron sights and a bayonet mount.
