From the development of night vision goggles to military thermal imaging camera technology, the army now has a clearer method for how to strengthen night operations. And this undoubtedly puts the sniper in an awkward position. Because the detection range of many infrared night vision devices is several kilometers, and the longest sniper kill record in the world is 3450 meters. Using a TAC-50 heavy sniper rifle, a Canadian special soldier shot and killed an enemy 3450 meters away in the Iraq War. The bullet flew for 10 seconds. And this distance is the distance that can be detected by military thermal imaging camera, so if a sniper conducted a "decapitation strike" operation, would he be exposed in advance?
First of all, the first thing a qualified sniper must learn is how to disguise himself, and camouflage and terrain camouflage are both methods to avoid enemy detection. The sniper has a special Geely suit. This Geely suit is mixed with special materials, and the color is generally chosen to be close to the combat environment to effectively shield infrared detection. Especially now there are even more powerful camouflage nets that can effectively defend against infrared and thermal detection.
The cloth wrapped around the sniper rifle is also for stealth treatment for the sniper rifle. Don't underestimate this cloth. This cloth can not only integrate the sniper rifle with the environment, but also prevent the reflection of the gun from being detected. Finally, it can also absorb the temperature of the gun when shooting.
There is also a way for snipers to avoid military thermal imaging camera. For example, the protagonist in a TV show is covered with mud to reduce the body's heat to a certain extent and avoid the possibility of being discovered. Moreover, factors such as weather and environment will cause difficulties for military thermal imaging camera technology.
Therefore, in our view, the development of military thermal imaging camera technology is a spur to the development of snipers, and they complement each other. In the future battlefield, both will become terrible evils for the enemy.
