The best sniper shots in history

15
The sniper is an independent combat unit, whose tasks include the elimination of enemy commanders, the destruction of important single and group targets, as well as the fight against enemy snipers. Ideally, a sniper should be proficient in the art of shooting marks and the art of disguise.


The main tool of such a specialist - a rifle with a powerful optical sight. Modern optics allows you to "hit the apple" from a distance of several kilometers. However, it is not limited to a good sight. We can not ignore the external factors, such as the direction and strength of the wind, humidity, gravity of the Earth and even its rotation.

History knows a lot of extremely accurate long-range shots. However, today the world record belongs to Russian snipers. They managed to hit the target at a distance of almost 3500 meters.

    Common crap. (There is no place for a pro-Amerian idle talk on VO)
    Reminded: "10 sniper shots that changed the world" - "Modestly and tastefully" (17 moments)

    It seems that the examples cite the correct, but exclusively Anglo-Saxons in brave battles and rewards from the Queen of England, and ours certainly on the agricultural field and the target on the dunghill. negative

      There are snipers, well-aimed hunters and arrows - athletes. Lobaev is not a sniper, but a fan of entertaining shooting. Not even an athlete in this particular case.

      1. This indicates their effectiveness (large accounts of claims are accumulated).
      2. This speaks of their special value (offensively! Everyone is equal, but they are more even)

      What is their meanness? That they don’t even like their own? I do not agree with you.

        Since they are not mean .... They send. Require. And don't say a word. (looks like stockprap)

    And what are they mean? Under you that, excuse me, did the sniper toilet bowl split, or did you knock a spoon out of your mouth?
    The same soldiers as everyone else - they do their job.
    As for Lobaev and the guys who work together with him - well done, they do business and do it well. Good luck to them all and good luck!
    And thanks for the article and the video, it was interesting to watch and listen.

    Count how many wars they started after 1945 ... and then you will understand why brazenly Saxons ....
