VKS (ВКС) is a Russian bullpup, straight-pull bolt-action, magazine-fed sniper rifle chambered for the 12.7×55mm STs-130 subsonic round. The weapon is also known by the name VSSK and the additional name Vykhlop (or, incorrectly, Vychlop), which comes from the development program. It was developed in around 2002 for the special force units of FSB.

The 12.7×55mm VKS silenced sniper rifle is intended for special operations that require silent firing and penetration much superior to that provided by 9×39mm VSS silenced sniper rifle. Typical targets for the VKS are combatants in heavy body armor or behind cover. The weapon uses an integral suppressor.

The special round has an overall length of 97 mm. The accuracy is claimed as 1 Minute of arc at a 100-meter range with precision bullets.

SC-130 (СЦ-130) - standard

SC-130U (СЦ-130У) - for training

SC-130PT (СЦ-130ПТ) - increased accuracy (59 gram bullet)

SC-130PT2 (СЦ-130ПТ2) - increased accuracy (solid bronze bullet)

SC-130VPS (СЦ-130ВПС) - increased penetration (76 gram bullet). Armour penetration : 16 mm of steel at 200 meters, or a heavy body armor at 100 meters.

Just so you all know this is from WIKIPEDIA, just like the other posts about the snipers!!! ;) 

This sniper is my favorite sniper, the sniper itself is so powerful and the thing I like most is the suppressor. Like the suppressor is so big. I heard that one shot just to break open the human skull., so it's not that powerful like the M93 Black Arrow. I wish they put this sniper in CoD. And admins I am sorry if I got carried away with the topics and the themes, forgive me if I was spamming or did something wrong. :d

There's the picture of the VKS.
