First seen in the early 1960s, the Druganov SVD is a gas-operated sniping rifle in service with the states of the former U.S.S.R. and Warsaw Pact. Although based on the AK assault rifles, the SVD was a new design from the ground up, and it has a reputation for extreme accuracy. It is fitted with a 4x scope that has limited passive IR capability, mounted on the left side of the weapon. Most other scopes will not fit on the weapon without some modification, but there are iron sights.
