To be a sniper, you are classified as infantry assett, as you know women cannot be Inf. like I said regarding Engineers, you will have to ask them, but I doubt it .

Correct, EOD have the rifles but don't do the sniper course, just a fam on the rifle, as wimmin can be EOD trained it's possible they could handle the very large weapons :roll:

I'd learn the basic marksmanship principles and learning how to shoot before worrying about wanting to become a sniper.

As Blobmeister said, you have to spend something like 2/3 years in an infantry unit before you can specialize as a sniper. As females can't join the infantry I don't think you are able to become a sniper.

Thank fcuk, I've seen some of them shoot. Low flying aircraft beware.

thats good, that what i want to do!
does that include officers?
i beleive as a sniper you are more about intelligence gathering but Officers do make a very good target and are high up the list of points on your score sheet :D

Most soldier career paths are open to males and females. The exceptions to this are the Household Cavalry, the Royal Armoured Corps and the Infantry, these roles are male only.

and a sniper is a infantry unit and you can also be a sniper in the household cavalry

No you cannot. I believe you may be trained on a sniper rifle for RE bomb disposal, you would have 2 ask the Engineers.
Unless you think out of the box.....

However, although this has not been tried yet....

What if aj2608 were to pass AACC, then she (could be he) would then be classed as an infantry asset and technically i presume open to attend all the courses her fellow males would be allowed to. There have been a few case of All Arms Ranks passing the RM Snipers course. (Only a few mind, but still a few) Don't sniff so quickly, there have been a few female passes
wether who are entitled to wear the green beret and dagger....

Even after passing the AACC, the said female had a caveat of 'not in the combat role' endorsed on her records, this was stating when in the press at the time.

We had female snipers in 49 as Sluggy said, absolute nails they were. Brenda was a first class shot. aj2608 if you can send a phot i will see if we have a ghillie suit that will fit you

Girls can't shoot, end of story

The Russians love their female snipers. Pop a line off to old Vlad Putin he'll give you a job to do. 8O
FFS is this person going to lead men? Thats the sort of daft question I'd expect from a 12 year old Army Cadet. :evil:
