sniper rifles, ballistic rifle and camouflage on the ground.
Sections on sniper tactics in combat conditions are compiled taking into account the experience of snipers of the Great Patriotic War, the Afghan campaign, as well as the actions of snipers in modern hot spots in the CIS and Europe. Sections on the theory of small sniper weapons, ammunition and weapon repair can expand the technical horizons of a practical sniper and explain the reasons for misses associated with the operation of the weapon and improper care of it.
The book The Art of Sniper is intended for training snipers directly in units and subunits, in counter-terrorism units, law enforcement agencies and for hunter-traders.
