This would degrade the enemy's ability and his will to fight. 40 Crew-served weapons Snipers are a very real threat to any crew-served weapon, such as anti-tank missiles and heavy machine guns, and their teams. These weapons can inflict severe damage on the snipers' friendly forces and as such are high on the snipers' list of targets to be located and destroyed. Most crew-served weapons have long range, so the weapon teams foolishly feel they are out of sniper range and safe from attack. They therefore never camouflage their positions.

Vehicle-mounted systems are mostly of the bolt-on variety and cannot be fired or re-loaded under armor, leaving the crews exposed to sniper attack in the same way that dismounted crews are. Support equipment The target list for the antimateriel sniper is almost endless, and the ability of an enemy, on the battlefield or in a city, to function when it keeps losing all its ancillary support machinery to accurate small arms fire is vastly reduced. For example, communications units are powered either by batteries or generator produced electricity, and the generators produce the power to run the battery chargers.

This in itself reduces the effectiveness of the vehicle and increases the attack potential of a ground-based enemy force, showing again how snipers can affect the balance of probability on the battlefield. 50caliber weapon and armor-piercing highexplosive or incendiary ammunition, lighter armored vehicles are now vulnerable to destruction, as discovered in both the first and second Gulf Wars, when Allied snipers utilized these weapons. Armored vehicle crews have a very stupid habit of sitting outside the protection of their vehicle, and many have recently paid the price by being hit by sniper fire.
