Snipers have different meanings in different battlefields. In recent years, the reason why snipers who attracted much attention in the cold war period can rise to the surface again and get the attention of many strategists shows a truth that catching thieves first catches the king. Therefore, the surface significance of the sniper is to attack effective forces. In a deeper sense, the purpose of the sniper is to suppress the enemy’s attack and momentum, attack the enemy’s key guiding people and weapons, cause chaos and fear, so as to curb the enemy’s combat effectiveness.
The origin of modern snipers can be traced back to the American War of independence. At that time, there was a team of experienced shooters in the American militia. The members of this team are experienced shooters. They use rifled front loaded Rifles (this rifle is called Kentucky rifle) and lead bullets wrapped in deer skin and soaked in oil to shoot British officers at a circular distance of more than 400 meters on the battlefield.
