Example text

38 Modern radar systems can be damaged by high-impact ammunition; they are usually located away from frontline troops, and so are vulnerable to sustained sniper attack. By removing a radar, a sniper team may in fact remove a much larger asset, such as missile or gun systems. The Scud mobile ballistic missile launcher has been the archetypical target: the missile is only effective if it leaves the launcher and for that to happen the crew must program it, and this leaves the missile vulnerable. Removing the crew or damaging the computer suite area will leave the missile exactly what it is in this picture, a museum piece.

They therefore never camouflage their positions. This makes them very easy to locate for a trained sniper observer with a powerful optic. The weapons are slow-moving and cumbersome, and the crews become fatigued and lazy, adopting sloppy drills. Vehicle-mounted systems are mostly of the bolt-on variety and cannot be fired or re-loaded under armor, leaving the crews exposed to sniper attack in the same way that dismounted crews are. Support equipment The target list for the antimateriel sniper is almost endless, and the ability of an enemy, on the battlefield or in a city, to function when it keeps losing all its ancillary support machinery to accurate small arms fire is vastly reduced.

However, his chances of success would rely not so much on divine 46 intervention but on the sniper's overall knowledge and understanding of the target's capabilities and equipment, as well as its routine and staffing levels. If the same problem had been presented to the sniper of World War II, he would have had little success against a warship above the level of killing crew members. The reason for this lies within the overall concept of warship design and weaponry of the time, rather than with his ability to consider a warship as a target.
