  • Chapter 8 - Tracking and Counter Tracking (16 pages)
    • When a sniper follows a trail, he builds a picture of the enemy in his mind by asking himself questions:
    • How many persons am I following?
    • What is their state of training?
    • How are they equipped?
    • Are they healthy?
    • What is their state of morale?
    • Do they know they are being followed?

  • To answer these questions, the sniper uses available indicators to track the enemy.
    • The sniper looks for signs that reveal an action occurred at a specific time and place.
      • For example, a footprint in soft sand is an excellent indicator, since a sniper can determine the specific time the person passed
  • By comparing indicators, the sniper obtains answers to his questions. For example -
    • A footprint and a waist-high scuff on a tree may indicate that an armed individual passed this way.
    • And how do you turn it on it's head so that those tracking you get totally the wrong idea about where, when and what you are!
