International Army Sniper Competition: Top Sniper

The role of the sniper has never been more important than on the modern battlefield. From the urban combat in the streets of Iraq to the mountaintop assaults of Afghanistan, the need for precision rifle fire is critical to mission success.

But now you don't need to head to the frontlines to see the world's best snipers in action, we've got them right here on the American Heroes Channel.

Every year the Sniper School at Fort Benning, Georgia invites the most elite sniper teams in the world to compete in a week-long competition to determine which two man team is the best. Although this is a competition, for many soldiers it will be the most realistic training they will ever receive.

The American Heroes Channel will take you into the world of modern sniping and behind the rifles to experience combat competition like never before.
