Comrade Anon, let me tell you story of my experience with AS VAL when I was Vympel.
Gun was heavy, like proper Russian rifle. Not that блядь of a rifle M4. Gun cannot be heard by terrorists when firing. Good Russian engineering.
In Vympel, I called my assigned AS VAL Aнacтacия. It mean Anastasia. Why? Because I secretly wish I were Czar, so I can drink Cristal.
Anyway, when I operating in Caucasus, I kill many terrorists with Aнacтacия. It was accurate and silent. It also mean when I consume my vodka ration and become happy and shoot Aнacтacия randomly into night, nobody knows.
It was good gun. Good Russian gun.
