Trivia

The name for the fictitious homemade air rifle that serves as a stealth weapon is "Tihar," from the word тихо (tiho, quiet). Tihar means thus "something that quiets the enemy down." In much the same way, other Russian weapons have slang names, such as the VSS sniper rifle with a built-in suppressor, which is called Винторез (Vintorez, "thread cutter") since its accuracy and other characteristics are so excellent. Another example is the the OTs-21 subcompact pistol, known as Малыш (Malysh, kid, little boy).
