Members of a sniper team with the 1st Battalion, Royal Irish Regiment (1 R IRISH), take a knee while on the move toward their target during a training exercise. British sniper teams are comprised of two men: a shooter, usually armed with an L115A3 long-range rifle, and a spotter, armed in the picture with an L85A2 assault rifle. The spotter is in overall control of the team. His role includes target selection, providing environmental and shooting information to the shooter, such as windage, distance, air density, angle of the shot.
