    Reportedly one of our Sniper team has killed a Tango Foxtrot* at a distance of 2000+ meters, which is over a mile. Team included a Sniper armed with the Accuracy International Arctic Warfare Sniper Rifle and the Spotter with standard software aids and scope. The KIA was confirmed when his body was recovered and range confirmed through recovery and software. Our boys have started to use Lapua rounds, so i think this is whats paying off.

    Tango Foxtrot = Taliban Fighter

    I doubt if the video footage will be released even if it has been recorded. because the JUI and Jamat Islami will use it to propaganda against our military via the foul mouths of Hamid Mir and his family of journalists.

    shame we will only have to live with words

    Also with the takfiri pigs all around the country, retaliation is a real, current and present danger, regarding the kill, regular "take down" of tango foxtrots are made in excess of 500 meters.

    Also have noticed a lot of US vernacular and abbreviation entering forces every day speech - speaks to the close co-operation between us, even though on the surface there has been bad blood.

    Good work by our snipers. I hope they continue the good work and continue sending the Taliban to jahanam. Death to the TTP. Long live Pakistan as a secular and united nation.

    Boys have to be careful, or that bitch asma jahangari will be on the case, little chance these will get uploaded, this is a command from on high, fire and brimstone if you are found doing it.

    I can confirm that PA has tested more Lapua platforms like Trovelo, latest AI AW and a brand new AI rifle, simply called AXMC the multi calibre AXMC, a .338 Lap Mag which can be reconfigured to .300 Win Mag or.308 Win in minutes simply by changing the barrel, bolt and magazine/insert.
