During a siege in the Russian front?
I remember they said something about a German and Russian sniper having something of a standoff. Couldn't tell much more about it without looking it up, but I do remember very high kill counts being mentioned
On a WWII documentary I was watching. Sorry
Wasn't there a film about this with Ed Harris?
Wasn't it a chick instead of a dude?
I think I heard it was anyway.
No, I didn't.
The best I heard of was Carlos Hathcock, from the Vietnam era. He didn't have such high numbers, though. He once saw an enemy sniper's scope flash, and fired a snap shot from memory at the flash; when they found the guy, the bullet had gone gone down the length of the scope and into his eye. I suppose his legend isn't just built on shooting skill, but on hunting skill, being able to sneak into enemy territory alone to assassinate a difficult and important target.
A couple of years ago, a team of Canadian snipers set a new distance record on a kill in Afghanistan, 2430m, according to Google, and that record has since been broken.
Yes, I saw the story on that guy. He was crazy. I heard they finally shot him in the head, but he lived, healed up and was back in the war again, and died of old age at like age 89 or something crazy.
Shouldn't the best be the one doing it from the greatest distance?
The amount of victims depends on enemy soldiers being in the wrong place. It sounds more like the enemy's record for having the most soldiers killed by the same sniper. Actually five per day doesn't really sound that much in a war either... but my picture of war might be a little off due to movies and games.
That is nothing,I am not on record but won`t say anything more.Shot 800 dummies in 2 days.
If that is true, by goodness that dude has made skills!
