An unidentified sniper from the elite Joint Task Force 2 made the shot from a distance of 3,540 meters using a U.S.-made McMillan Tac-50 rifle and Hornady 750 gr Amax ammo chambered in .50 BMG cartridge! :shocked:

The Canadian Armed Forces confirmed Thursday that a member of Joint Task Force 2 made the record-breaking shot, killing an Islamic State insurgent during an operation in Iraq within the last month.

 

The elite sniper was using a McMillan TAC-50 sniper rifle while firing from a high-rise during an operation that took place within the last month in Iraq. It took under 10 seconds to hit the target.

“The shot in question actually disrupted a Daesh [Islamic State] attack on Iraqi security forces,” said a military source.  “Instead of dropping a bomb that could potentially kill civilians in the area, it is a very precise application of force and because it was so far way, the bad guys didn’t have a clue what was happening.”

 

The military source said the JTF2 operation fell within the strictures of the government’s advise and assist mission.

“As stated multiple times in the past, members of the Canadian Special Operations Task Force do not accompany leading combat elements, but enable the Iraqi security forces who are in a tough combat mission,” the statement said.  “This takes the form of advice in planning their operations and assistance to defeat Daesh through the use of coalition resources.” The kill was independently verified by video camera and other data.

“Hard data on this. It isn’t an opinion. It isn’t an approximation. There is a second location with eyes on with all the right equipment to capture exactly what the shot was,” another military source said.

A military insider told The Globe: “This is an incredible feat. It is a world record that might never be equalled.”

 

The world record was previously held by British sniper Craig Harrison, who shot a Taliban gunner with a 338 Lapua Magnum rifle from 2,475 metres away in 2009.

Previously, Canadian Corporal Rob Furlong had set the world record in 2002 at 2,430 metres when he gunned down an Afghan insurgent carrying an RPK machine gun during Operation Anaconda.

Weeks before, Canadian Master Cpl. Arron Perry briefly held the world’s best sniper record after he fatally shot an insurgent at 2,310 metres during the same operation. Both soldiers were members of the 3rd Battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry.

U.S. Sergeant Bryan Kremer has the longest confirmed sniper kill shot by a U.S. soldier. He killed an Iraqi insurgent with his Barrett M82A1 rifle at 2,300 metres in 2004.

 

JTF2 special forces are primarily tasked with counterterrorism, sniper operations and hostage rescue. Much of the information about this elite organization is classified and not commented on by the government. The unit’s snipers and members of Canadian Special Operations Regiment, who are carrying out the main task of training Kurdish forces, have been operating in tough conditions in Iraq.

The Trudeau government pulled CF-18 fighter jets out of Iraq in 2016 but expanded the military mission, which will see the number of Canadian special forces trainers climb to 207 from 69 in an assist, train and advise mission. Canadian commandos are not supposed to be involved in direct combat, but are authorized to go up to the front lines on training missions with Kurdish Peshmerga fighters and to paint targets for coalition air strikes.

 

For operational security reasons, sources would not reveal the names of the elite Canadian sniper and his partner, nor the location where the action took place.

A sniper and his observer partner are often sent to remote and dangerous locations to hunt down insurgents while having to carry heavy equipment. Once they have located the target, snipers follow the same methodical approach before each shot. Breathe in, out, in, out, find a natural pause and then squeeze the trigger.

 

Canada has a reputation among Western military forces for the quality of its snipers, despite the small size of the Canadian Armed Forces compared to the United States and Britain.

“Canada has a world-class sniper system. It is not just a sniper. They work in pairs. There is an observer,” a military source said. “This is a skill set that only a very few people have.”

The skill of the JTF2 sniper in taking down an insurgent at 3,540 metres required math skills, great eyesight, precision of ammunition and firearms, and superb training.

“It is at the distance where you have to account not just for the ballistics of the round, which change over time and distance, you have to adjust for wind, and the wind would be swirling,” said a source with expertise in training Canadian special forces.

“You have to adjust for him firing from a higher location downward and as the round drops you have to account for that. And from that distance you actually have to account for the curvature of the Earth.”

Here's the simulation of the latest World Record for Longest Sniper Killshot (by Canadian Joint Task Force 2 Sniper):

 

3540 m shot by Joint Task Force 2 Sniper

 

 

The Canadian JTF2 sniper was shooting a McMillan TAC50 rifle (chambered in 12.7×99mm NATO cartridge & loaded with Hornady 750 gr AMAX ammo).

In this video, i only shot a steel target to demonstrate how the canadian sniper took the shot.

The shot happened in Iraq.

 

The in-game rifle is actually a CheyTac M200 Intervention (chambered in .408 CheyTac cartridge) but i modified the ballistics to exactly imitate the TAC50 & 12.7x99mm NATO cartridge. So yes, in this video i literally shot the exact same ammo like he did (Hornady 750 gr AMAX).

 

Here's the spec of his weapon:

Rifle = McMillan Tac50 (in .50 BMG / 12.7x99mm NATO)

Ammo = Hornady .50 cal 750 gr AMAX 

Ballistics Coefficient  = 1.05 (G1) / 0.523 (G7)

Muzzle Velocity = 825 mps / 2707 fps

Atmospheric Condition of Iraq (in this case Baghdad & Fallujah):

Altitude: 40 m above sea level

Air Pressure: 1005 hPa

Air Temperature: 30°C - 40°C

 

As you can see in my video, The Canadian Sniper had to deal with:

BULLET DROP = 83 MILIRADIAN

WIND DRIFT = 7 MILIRADIAN

 

He had to zoom out his scope and power it backdown to the smallest magnification (5x Mag) in order to be able to use the Mildot Reticle to hold above the target (Mildot Holdover) for Bullet Drop compensation.

In this simulator, I could only dial 30 Miliradian. It means i still got 53 Miliradian to hold above the target to compensate for all the bullet drop.

 

The projectile took 10 seconds to land on the target.

And yes i could barely see the target (It appeared as a tiny dot in my scope).

 

The Canadian Armed Force claimed that the sniper only took one shot to hit the ISIS.

So yeah i only took one shot to hit the steel target. It worked for me in Arma 3 (with ACE3 of course)! But this is just a simulation!

I don't think this shot is possible in real life.....

 

What do you guys think? Is this shot really possible in real life? Did the JTF2 Sniper really nail the shot?

please let me know your opinion ^_^

 

 

Good Shooting!

Let me share my other analysis & simulation of the previous world records for longest kill shot:

 

1600 m shot by Chief Petty Officer Chris Kyle (the American Sniper)

 

Chris Kyle was shooting a NSWC Crane MK13 mod 0 rifle (chambered in .300 Winchester Magnum cartridge & loaded with MK248 mod 0 ammo).

1130 m "Beach Balls" shot by Chief Petty Officer Chris Kyle (the American Sniper)

 

Chris Kyle was shooting a NSWC Crane MK13 mod 0 rifle (chambered in .300 Winchester Magnum cartridge & loaded with MK248 mod 0 ammo).

 

This is Chris Kyle's most bizarre killshots in his military career.

One day Chris Kyle saw some insurgents using 4 Beach Balls to get across a river without drowning. They had body armor and many weapons so it made them extremely heavy.

Chris Kyle shot all those Beach Balls so they all drowned to death.
