Can you spot the two snipers hiding in the woods? Staff Sgt. Brian Moran, an Instructor at the U.S. Army Sniper Course, explains the role of snipers in military operations and shows us some of the techniques used to remain concealed to enemies.
A lot of people have the misconception that to be a good sniper, you have to be a good shooter. Shooting is only 20 percent of the course at the Army Sniper School. It takes a patient person, a disciplined person, a person who is used to working alone. In addition to marksmanship skills, the school instructs on detecting and stalking a target and estimating the range of a target.
The course also covers concealment and camouflage, as well as observation exercises.
The first U.S. Army Sniper School was initiated in 1955, right after the Korean War cease-fire. The present U.S. Army Sniper School was established at Fort Benning, Georgia, in 1987. The length of the school is 5 weeks. The Army National Guard Sniper School was established in 1993 at Camp Robinson Arkansas.
