Best Sniper Competition

2019 Edition – 2nd edition

Asso Sion created the Best Sniper compeition ! Are you capable to survive in hostile territory and accomplish your mission ?

You will be able to measure yourself against other long distance shooting specialists and campaigners!

The Best Sniper competition is a 2-day military competition on the Hongrin military field. It is based on the 4th generation sniping. It requires a very good physical condition, excellent health and good knowledge of infantry.

The sniper differs from the marksman mainly in their respective doctrine. Snipers are highly valuable because of their specialization (tactical knowledge, survival, transmission, special equipement, long-range shooting, etc.), for missions of several hours up to several days in completely isolated environments, while marksmen belongs to an infantry squad. They do not usually use the same caliber nor the same type of weapon.

The Best Sniper competition will compete patrols of two men. Patrols will have to make various raids to distinguish themselves in the following domains:
– Camouflage and approach with ghillie, backpack and all the necessary mission
– Recognition and observation (with OPFOR)
– Middle range shooting (TIFLU) on goals between 500 and 700m (4th generation snipping)
– Pistol self defense

This year 2019 will be the second public edition where competitors come from Europe and beyond.

Foreigners must take part of the preliminary modules (pistol training, distance shooting, and more.) on Thursday 5th of September.

Competition lead by a career NCO and is Sniper certified from Isone (Switzerland).
