MOSCOW, October 8 (Itar-Tass) - State Duma member Frants Klintsevich, deputy chairman of the Duma's Defence Committee, believes it is not advisable to use paintball for training of soldiers.
"I am flatly against the proposal," he told Itar-Tass.
American commandoes began to use paintball for training 30 years ago, and it has become clear that the game does not give right skills because it differs from real shooting - lower speed of fire and less loud shots, Klintsevich noted.
The legislator believes that if to use something like this, then strikeball would be better. In this game, guns look similar to real models and fire six-mm and eight-mm plastic balls.
All the same, it is better not to be enthusiastic about it, since results of such training and using skills in real fighting will be negative, Klintsevich said.
The proposal to introduce paintball in the Russian Armed Forces was made on Monday by Alexander Kanshin, chairman of the Public Chamber commission on national security and social and economic conditions of life of servicemen, members of their families and veterans.
