Ready. Aim. Splat.
Looks like our friends, the Brits, have some pretty good snipers.
The plan for Operation Marlborough was simple: allow the three suspected bombers to leave the house and get into the street, then kill them with head shots from the four sniper teams. Each team was equipped with L115A .338 sniper rifles, capable of killing at up to 1,000 yards.... The SAS soldiers were told that it was vital that the three bombers would have to be killed simultaneously.... As the terrorists entered the street, a volley of shots rang out and the three insurgents slumped to the ground. Each terrorist had been killed by a single head shot...Go, read the whole thing. And raise a pint in honor of our allies.
