The unique weapon that they claim can do the job is produced by Lobaev Arms, located in the town of Tarusa in western Russia's Kaluga Oblast. Head of the company Nikolay Lobaev says that their unique rifle is called the SVLK-14 Sumrak (Twilight) and is able to hit targets over 3 kilometres (1.86 miles) away.
He said: "Last year we successfully shot a target 3,400 meters (3,718 yards) away. Since then, we have implemented a number of innovations including making the barrel longer and the bullet slightly heavier. Hopefully, this year we will be able to set a new record." Nikolay Lobaev and his team now hope to hit a target at 4,200 meters (4,593 yards).
