An American marksman looks for enemy activity along the hilltops near Dur Baba District , Afghanistan The main difference between a marksman and a normal sniper is that a marksman is usually considered an organic part of a fireteam of soldiers, whereas regular snipers tend to work alone or with other snipers.

The History Of Sniping And Sharpshooting

Out of Nowhere - Ebook

By Earl J. Hess Lawrence: University Press of Kansas, It is commonly believed that the introduction of the rifled musket on a mass scale revolutionized warfare during the American Civil War but that the generals failed to appreciate its real impact and blindly continued to employ outmoded tactics, until when losses drove both armies to dig in and fight from entrenchments. Earl Hess challenges this conclusion, arguing that many of the assumptions about the rifled musket's impact on the war either do not hold up under careful study or are exaggerated. His evidence is impressive and persuasive. Hess builds the context of his case with a brief but adequate survey of the history of the smoothbore and rifled musket heritage before the Civil War.

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. The verb "to snipe" originated in the s among soldiers in British India in reference to shooting snipes , which was considered an extremely challenging game bird for hunters due to its alertness, camouflaging color and erratic flight behavior. Snipe hunters therefore needed to be stealthy in addition to being good trackers and marksmen. The agent noun "sniper" appears by the s. Different countries use different military doctrines regarding snipers in military units , settings, and tactics. Generally, a sniper's primary function in modern warfare is to provide detailed surveillance from a concealed position and, if necessary, to reduce the enemy's combat ability by neutralizing high-value targets especially officers and other key personnel and in the process pinning down and demoralizing the enemy.

Ты говоришь, что наше дерьмовое правительство исходит из высших интересов людей. Но что будет, если какое-нибудь будущее правительство станет вести себя. Ведь эта технология - на вечные времена.

 - Бринкерхофф посмотрел на нее осуждающе.  - Дай парню передохнуть. Ни для кого не было секретом, что Мидж Милкен недолюбливала Тревора Стратмора. Стратмор придумал хитроумный ход, чтобы приспособить Попрыгунчика к нуждам агентства, но его схватили за руку. Несмотря ни на что, АН Б это стоило больших денег.

Вы же сказали… - Мы к нему пальцем не притронулись, - успокоил ее Стратмор.

Он начал подписывать свои записки Любовь без воска, Дэвид. Таких посланий она получила больше двух десятков. И все был подписаны одинаково: Любовь без воска. Она просила его открыть скрытый смысл этих слов, но Дэвид отказывался и только улыбался: Из нас двоих ты криптограф.

Одно различие от природы, другое - рукотворное. Плутоний впервые был открыт… - Число, - напомнил Джабба.  - Нам нужно число. Сьюзан еще раз перечитала послание Танкадо. Главная разница между элементами… разница между… нужно найти число… - Подождите! - сказала .
