Counter-terrorism sniper training in ‘the west’.

terrorist and major criminal operations in Australia’s capital cities. This required experienced members to make these transitions quickly and effectively. It also required a level of maturity, as you could be sneaking into a village under NVGs one day, and 48 hours later you were in the Melbourne CBD on another, highly visible task. During later articles I will describe what it was like and some of the ordeals we faced during these operations. I will be restricted on some information due to the Commonwealth Secrecy Act, but I will be able to explain some skills and personal experiences.

I will also write articles on the latest weapons, equipment, ammunition and specific sniper training. I will do my best to accurately portray the work and the type of men who actually conducted the operations. I will try to capture the human side as well – the humor, the personal sacrifice, and the pain that came with both arduous activities and the injuries we sustained on the job. I look forward to sharing all this with you and for you to get an insight into our world. See you in March 2017.
