This 5 day course will focus on rural terrain operations, combined which the urban operation tactics taught in the Level 1 course.

 

Each marksman will be taught and tested on field craft skills, medium range shooting, urban assault sniper team tactics, observation and intelligence gathering. Snipers will also make urban assaults as entry team members and will work close with fellow team snipers during this exercise.

All construction materials and camouflage will be provided for this exercise except for the base uniform preferred by the sniper.
