Sniper Training Program

  • A brief description of the snipers professional nature.
  • Sniping in general is fulfilling tactical, reconnaissance and fire missions by the sniper by moving to a position on a particular area of terrain to perform reconnaissance surveillance fire weapons (usually disguised), destruction of enemy personnel and the decommissioning of the elements (blocks) systems, control weapons, intelligence and communications opponent.
  • This specific nature of the activity is due to the fact that:
  • Destruction is the sniper’s most dangerous target and top-priority;
  • All movements are carried out in close proximity by the enemy – in his body, or on the battlefield;
  • all positions, the most suitable for surveillance and fire are usually either controlled by the enemy (are supervised and designed to cause fire damage), or are in places which are difficult to approach because of the nature of the terrain;
  • Execution of tactical reconnaissance, support and firing tasks is in direct link to the natural environment.

Basic operations:

  • These observations to determine the routes secretive movement detection, usually disguised infrastructure and weapon systems (elements or blocks of weapons control) of the enemy;
  • Send and receive information using radio communication, voice and visual signals;
  • Data preparation for shooting at the range defined by the terms of terrain and weather conditions;
  • Destruction dangerous and important targets by fire in accordance with the tactical situation while providing possible masking on the firing position;
  • Using software in masking and engineering equipment to monitor position and fire as possible to maintain combat effectiveness (life and security) in the face of strong enemy resistance and the impact of the environment.
    The workspace is a position located on a site area or building (construction), equipped with the engineering of anti-detection and fire, away from weather factors effects, adjusted for surveillance, fire and life support.


Sniper Training Program (Basic Course)


The aim of this training is to impart students with solid professional knowledge and skills and develop their special qualities needed to perform the sniping, reconnaissance and special missions and help them in their further improvement;

This training will help in developing themselves to become familiar with new weapons and military equipment, and provide them with the knowledge and skills in carrying out their maintenance and get ready for combat use, with the implementation of safety requirements.

The program is designed to train 5-7 people together. The Duration of the program is – 27 days by 6 hours per day.

Lesson 3. Lecture. The influence of external conditions on the muzzle velocity of the bullets and the trajectory of its flight. Standard conditions of
              shooting. The calculation of the corrections for deviation of actual shooting conditions than the standard conditions.

Lesson 4. Lecture. The influence of external and weapons forces on the shooter. Action shooters, leading to an increase of dispersion and a
               decrease in accuracy.

Lesson 5. Lecture. Wound ballistics. The effect of bullet ammunition on the human tissues and organs. The lethality of bullets on human beings.
            Internal organs injuries incompatible with life, and the projection of these organs in the human body. Gunshot injuries, causing instant       
             death, shock effect that leads to death or immobilization of the opponent.
