Abstract
In support of the $25 M Sniper System Project, the Directorate of Land Requirements 5 requested that a study be conducted to examine the most effective distribution of sniper support weapons within sniper teams in given situations. War games were conducted using Close Action Environment software with the aim of investigating and determining the effectiveness of a variety of sniper support weapons within sniper teams deployed for a target reduction operation in both rural and urban terrain. The objectives of this study were to: 1. Determine the optimal mix and distribution of sniper support weapon systems for a two-soldier sniper team; and 2. Determine the optimal mix and distribution of sniper support weapon systems for a four-soldier sniper detachment. The best combination for the four-soldier detachments was the C7/M203 (M203) paired with either the C7A2 or C9. The C9 was observed to increase in value as the terrain became more open. Logistic and training considerations would favour the M203 paired with the C7A2, while a demand for operations on open terrain suggest an M203 paired with a C9. The study could not support a conclusive recommendation for a two-soldier team.
