BritArmy | Super Sniper

3 05 2010

With all the doom and gloom peddled regarding Our Boys, nice to see that they are more than capable of breaking records.  Sniper Corporal Harrison took out two combatants at a range of 8,120ft!  That is over a mile and a half!

Craig Harrison from the Household Cavalry was using the Army’s most powerful sniper weapon, the British-built L115A3 Long Range Rifle whose optimal range is less than a mile.

‘We saw two insurgents running through its courtyard. They came forward carrying a machine gun and opened fire on the commander’s wagon.

‘Conditions were perfect, no wind, mild weather, clear visibility.

‘The first round hit a machine gunner in the stomach. He went straight down and didn’t move. The second insurgent grabbed the weapon and my second shot hit him in the side.’

The Man:The Gun:

Congratulations and wishing you all a happy return.
