    Anyway, Pakomar, here's a picture of our Anti-Narcotics task force. They also use sniper rifles.

    For the record.

    In 0.50 cal, Pakistan Army has recently inducted the RANGEMASTER made by a manufacturer in UK. Barret is seldom used by the Army albeit SSG because of the complaint of this heavy recoil.

    In 7.62mm, Pakistan Army has the STEYR which was inducted in the 1990's and now the special forces truly like using the ACCURACY INTERNATIONAL (AI) which is quite a capable Sniper Rifle.

    The pics above posted by Bezerk show the Steyr Sniper Rifle (7.62mm)

    Indeed. Here's a picture of my friend holding a 7.62MM Steyr Sniper Rifle that I took myself last year at an Infantry training camp.

    Also,

    The 'shredded' suits worn by the snipers above are called GHILLE SUITS invented by an American Company in the 90's. These suits come is various camo types for all environmental conditions. Pakistan Army Ghillie Suits are however made locally.

    Does Pakistan army have a special sniper school? Do Special Forces and regulars have the same sniper training?
