Islamic State has released a promotional video that’s meant to showcase the achievements of their sniper team. But at the end of the day, all it showcases are impressive video editing skills of their computer graphic artists, with sniper effectiveness being debatable at best.
Most of the sniper shots shown were taken from a significant distance from the target. The cameras could not zoom in well enough to show whether the target was actually hit, and if hit, whether the hit was fatal, or just injured the target.
Take a look and let me know what you think. Keep in mind that live sniper kills are never easy to capture on camera in good enough detail to safely determine if the shot was effective or not.
