VIDEO: See How One Sniper Took Out Six Taliban Terrorists With A Single Bullet From Over 850 Meters Away
Most of us thanks in part to the media, and of course to the blockbuster movie “American Sniper” have some sense of the extraordinary skill it takes to hit a target over 850 meters away.
It’s a skill that takes years to master, however not even the most skilled sniper could have imagined the event that was about to unfold as a British sniper drew a bead on his target an enemy combatant from his sniper’s nest in Southern Afghanistan.
And as he slowly squeezed off a round, little did he know that the target he was about to hit would blow up killing all six of the enemy.
Apparently the well placed round hit the vest of a suicide bomber which in turn detonated the explosives, call it luck or simply intervention from a higher authority.
