M82 Barrett .50 Calibre Sniper Rifle

In this video, we get an introduction to the Barrett M82 .50 Sniper Rifle. This is a serious piece of hardware. It is designed for disabling vehicles with pinpoint accuracy. If used on personnel, the results are devastating. The Provisional IRA were said to have used the Barrett during their war against British forces in the Occupied Six Counties (OSC). 

A sniper is a nightmare for military personnel. But when that sniper is using a weapon that is accurate to slightly over one mile, then that nightmare becomes more intense. The British soldiers stationed in South Armagh during the conflict were under severe psychological stress because of the success of an IRA sniper who was nicknamed One-shot Paddy. Snipers are one of the most effect soldiers in any war, and the Barrett greatly increases those capabilities. Meet the tool in this presentation to better understand what is out there.
