Spetsnaz GRU. Entrenching Shovel in Close Combat.

A hand-to-hand combat can break out in the conditions of limited visibility (at night, in smoke conditions an so on), in a forest, destroyed buildings, trenches, underground communications and constructions and etc. As a rule, during such engagements hostile soldiers outnumber a Spetsnaz reconnaissance/sabotage team, therefore the hand-to-hand combat with several enemies is an important element in training a fighter of the Spetsnaz...
