Afghan marksmanship

Discussion in 'Afghanistan' started by Kromeriz, Dec 12, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Interesting article. Interesting to see a Mosin Nagant in the photo, I wonder how often these are encountered?
  2. Excellent article. Too many lazy journalists simply drivel on about some Kipling-era myth of the godlike marksmanship of the Afghan (or other) shooter.
  3. On Herrick 12, every bloody day.
  4. Really? I'd no idea that these were so prevalent in Afghanistan. Any idea as to the origin of them? Supplied to the Afghan communists in the 80s perhaps?
  5. Anything old and Russian is pretty prolific. We had a few in the AO. One was used daily against our balloon. Until we killed the shit out of the firer.
