Two Brit snipers,

75 kills in 40 days. Longest 1430 meters(1564 yards), shortest 196 meters. And the latter was two guys on a motorcycle and took both out.

Article says they were using suppressors, which gave them a real advantage. Glad our guys new rifle has one issued as standard with it.

Snipers- one of the few cost-effective combat systems the military fields.

If we (the US) would field more teams, with the imaging capability to record their actions and their targets' actions, I think we could make more of an impact on local conditions. But then there be less troops on the ground needed, and can career officers score career points without the drones to implement their stellar mission upgrade policies on a unit rotation basis?
