The deadliest weapon in combat is not just a weapon of any sought; It can be one soldier or a pair of soldiers, it’s the lone sniper/ sniper team.

A sniper is a marksman or qualified specialist who operates alone or with a sniper team (Shooter/ Observer) to maintain close visual contact with the enemy and engage targets from concealed positions or distances exceeding the detection capabilities of enemy personnel. These sniper teams operate independently from the main body of their military units, with little support.

In addition to marksmanship and long range shooting capabilities, military snipers are trained in camouflage, field craft, infiltration, special reconnaissance and observation, surveillance and target acquisition.
