Canadian Snipers in Afghanistan video attached –

Canadian Sniper wiping out Taliban Snipers in
These video shots are not made through the
shooter's telescopic sight. They are made looking
through the spotter's scope. The spotter lies right
next to the sniper and helps the sniper to find and
home in on the target.
The sniper is using a 50-calibre rifle. A 50 cal. round
is about 7-8 inches long and the casing is about an
inch in diameter. The bullet itself is one-half inch in
diameter and roughly one and one-half inches long.
Pay close attention to the beginning of the video. A
Taliban is laying on top of the peak in front of you...
when you hear the shot fired.... watch what happens.
The sniper is also about a half-mile away or more.
A Canadian sniper in Afghanistan has been confirmed
as hitting an enemy soldier at a range of 2,310 meters
(7565 ft/1.43 miles), the longest recorded and
confirmed sniper shot in history. The previous record
of 2,250 meters (7369 ft/1.4 miles) was set by US
Marine sniper Carlos Hathcock in Vietnam in 1967.
The Canadian sniper was at an altitude of 8,500 feet
and the target, across a valley, was at 9,000 feet.
Canadian sniper units often operated in support of
US infantry units, which were grateful for their help.
The record lasted only one day, until a second
Canadian sniper hit an enemy soldier at 2,400 meters
(7860 feet/1.48 miles). The Canadian snipers fire
special 50-calibre McMillan tactical rifles, which are
bolt-action weapons with five-round magazines.
The Canadian snipers were the only Canadian troops
operating without helmets or flak jackets as they had
too much other equipment to carry. Each three-man
team has one sniper rifle.

|This video was taken inside the cockpit of an A-10 by the pilot.
It is a night view.
What you see is from 9700 feet away (almost two miles).
Four terrorists are walking along a street with no clue that
someone is watching them........ from almost 2 miles away.
The A-10 fired a 30 mm cannon WITHOUT injuring the dog nearby
who escaped unharmed.
You can see the gun camera shake a bit as the pilot fires; then
count about 4 seconds for the rounds to travel 2 miles. Every tenth
round is a tracer, so the bullets you actually see are every tenth;
they are getting hit with hundreds of rounds, but the dog is
Muzzle velocity on the 30mm cannon is 2430 feet per second. The
result is that four fewer guys won't be blowing up women and
The dog, in the upper right, just safely gets the hell out of there.
