Overview

INTRODUCTION
The sniper has special abilities, training and equipment. His job is to deliver
discriminatory highly accurate rifle fire against enemy targets, which cannot be engaged
successfully by the rifleman because of range, size, location, fleeting nature, or visibility.

Sniping requires the development of basic infantry skills to a high degree of perfection. A sniper's training incorporates a wide variety of subjects designed to increase his value as a force multiplier and to ensure his survival on the battlefield. The art of sniping requires learning and repetitiously practicing these skills until mastered. A sniper must be highly trained in long-range rifle marksmanship and field craft skills to ensure maximum effective engagements with minimum risk.
