    What does this mean?

    Google Translate is failing with this: два чоповца

    I've tried чоповец in my dictionary - but it's not there either.

    It is from an article in a magazine. It may mean 'two guards' or perhaps something a bit more colloquial?

    If someone could help me with the stress as well that would be great

    спасибо

    Your theory is correct!

    Что такое Чоповец - Значение слова «Чоповец»

    Im guessing from the incredibly common act of capitalizing the first syllable, and from the words origin as an acronym, it is pronounced

    чóповец
