A British Army sharp shooter has told how he killed five Taliban soldiers in 28 seconds - in a desperate bid to protect a British patrol that the insurgents were preparing to ambush.
The enemy targets were more than a mile away when the sniper, a corporal serving with 4 Rifles, got the all clear to take them out.
The corporal - who has 37 confirmed kills in just four months in the war zone - said that he and his spotter were set up in an old fort in Haji Alem, in the Nad-e Ali district of Helmand province.

They spotted the Taliban soldiers getting ready to attack a British foot patrol.
The sniper, who has not been named for security reasons, was using the L115A3 long-range rifle, which has an effective range of 1,100 metres.

I think a Brit also holds the record for the longest snipe kill ever.

Sometimes you come across shooters who are almost magical and Godlike with their ability to make a bullet go exactly where they want even in unbelievable situations. Ive seen it with my own eyes. This guy sounds like one of those. Carlos Hathcock and Vasily Zaitsev would be also.

Simo Hahya got a few hundred kills with a sub machine gun too

Soviets gave him the nickname White Death

after the war he recovered from his injury and lived his life simple as hell and enjoyed hunting frequently, when asked about how he feels about the war, and he responded hay I just did what i hada do, war is war..

oh and 2nd, although I do respect his accomplishment because I sure as hell couldn't do it. There was a Marine Sniper in Vietnam who had 16 kills in 30 seconds at night using crude night vision. I'd like to see him accomplish that before he goes around trying to act like a hardass.

Edit: was actually http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chuck_Mawhinney 16 shots 16 kills.

I think, I cant remember. Its either Carlos Hathcock or Chuck MaWhinney. All I'm trying to say is that although it still is impressive to get 5 kills in 30 seconds. What's more impressive and legendary is the guys like Chuck Mawhinney who got 16 snipes in 30 seconds using crude night vision and The White Death with 500 snipes using nothing more than a bolt action rifle.

I really doubt that. Even with a semi-automatic sniper instead of a bolt-action he still has to reload at least once.

the m14 isn't a sniper rifle, and that was 16 kills in less than a minute. he made it sound like he dropped 16 people in 30 seconds with an m40. they were less than 100 yards away. that's not really sniping.

This just makes me think of the movie inglorious basterds. The pride the germans took in killing so many allied forces by that sniper is likely looked at by us the same way the taliban would see this event.

you're right, we should stop every time we fight a battle, get in a circle with the surviving prisoners, and sing kumbaya. we should start shooting stun rounds instead of hollow tips because human life is too precious to waste. one thing i've learned about this world is that human life is anything but precious - humans are ****ing ****. when it comes to protecting the humans that aren't ****ty from the lowest of the low, there's no room for bleeding hearts like yours.

It's hellafied marksmanship and nerves of steal. You have to drop a lot of them fast enough to cause his friends to stop advancing and take a defensive posture or your dead. Try hitting a target in pitch black night at 100 yards with those old scopes and 'night vision' and you'll understand.

Why does rough men need to stand ready do do violence?
because there is a counter of other rough men standing to do violence
If there were not rough men doing violence, there would be no need for rough men :D

BTW, i would gladly fight for peace, such as in WWII
But rather than being in the frontlines, i rather stay back and be a general or create new technologies that could save the lives of those who i support

agree 100%, but it also destroyed the lives of many :D

Did you see the other Brit sniper that just got the world record for sniping kills? 2 confirmed kills at over 1.5 miles. Took 3 seconds for the bullet to reach the target. Impressive stuff.
