Wikipedia

  1. Sniper

    A sniper is a military/paramilitary marksman who engages targets from positions of concealment or at distances exceeding the target's detection capabilities. Snipers generally have specialized training and are equipped with high-precision rifles and high-magnification optics, and often also serve as scouts/observers feeding tactical information back to their units or command headquarters. In addition to long-range and high-grade marksmanship, military snipers are trained in a variety of special operation techniques: detection, stalking, target range estimation methods, camouflage, field craft, infiltration, special reconnaissance and observation, surveillance and target acquisition.

  1. Sniper

    A sniper is a highly trained marksman who operates alone, in a pair, or with a sniper team to maintain close visual contact with the enemy and engage targets from concealed positions or distances exceeding the detection capabilities of enemy personnel. These sniper teams operate independently, with little combat asset support from their parent units. Snipers typically have highly selective and specialized training and use high-precision/special application rifles and optics, and often have sophisticated communication assets to feed valuable combat information back to their units. In addition to marksmanship, military snipers are trained in camouflage, field craft, infiltration, special reconnaissance and observation, surveillance and target acquisition. Snipers are especially effective when deployed within the terrain of urban warfare, or jungle warfare.

Examples of sniper in a Sentence

  1. Jerome Dunn:

    True to DARPA's mission, EXACTO has demonstrated what was once thought impossible: the continuous guidance of a small-caliber bullet to target, this live-fire demonstration from a standard rifle showed that EXACTO is able to hit moving and evading targets with extreme accuracy at sniper ranges unachievable with traditional rounds. Fitting EXACTO's guidance capabilities into a small .50-caliber size is a major breakthrough and opens the door to what could be possible in future guided projectiles across all calibers.

  2. Tim Gray:

    The mark of a good piece of art is when people can have different interpretations, so I think it's entirely possible that people on the right and the left will both vote for it. The popularity of 'American Sniper' is an indication that a lot of people like it, and that includes red states, blue states and Oscar voters. If anything, I think people in Hollywood are encouraged -- after the box office dropped in 2014 -- that a January movie can make this money.

  3. The First Lady:

    I had a chance to see 'American Sniper' this week on that long flight we took.

  5. Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Paris:

    He is walking out of the sheriff's station, and a sniper took a shot at him.
