— In-game description
The OTs-03 is a marksman rifle featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It is available for use by Glaz. As a weapon exclusive to its Operator, the weapon comes with an irremovable Flip Sight by default.
The SVU (also known as the OTs-03) is a bullpup semi-automatic sniper rifle manufactured by the KBP Instrument Design Bureau that chambers the 7.62x54mmR round. The SVU is essentially an SVD Dragunov built in a bullpup configuration.
In-game, the OTs-03 is a high-powered marksman rifle with medium recoil. With a high damage model, the OTs-03 is, however, held back by its small magazine size and impacting mobility.
The Flip Sight gadget enables a significant zoom to take on long-range targets. It includes distinctive thermal vision capabilities that highlight enemy operators in bright yellow. It can also see through smoke, provided Glaz stays stationary for a couple seconds.
The rifle benefits immensely from the Muzzle Brake, which makes the gun considerably easier to control when fully magnified. Recoil is still considerable at the intended long ranges though.
The gun is capable of piercing the Bulletproof Windows on the Presidential Plane.
