In my team we've been experimenting with large sniper teams lately. A two man-team must flee or die if compromised at under 20metres. So we got one sniper team-leader ( he is the best long range shooter) 2ic (second best LRS) 2security-dudes with m4 and or m249. If we are a six man-team we divide into two groups who fire simultaneously at one or two targets.

We pack alot of gear for this.
Scout sniper observation telescope
binoculars
puxing/cobra
Ghillie and or green clothing for woodland areas
Water in bottles and camelback
sketchkit with calculator
bodyarmour
ammo: m4:6-10 mag m9:2-4 mag m40:20-40 rounds
flashlight
sniperdatabook (what is this them?)
paracord
ducttape
slope doper (In process of making/buying one)
gps
knife
tripod with gunrest
compass
map
urban hide kit (what's in this, different webpages says different things)
screen (a rather large piece of mosquito net, I see out they don't see in)
Dark/black clothing fore use in shadows inside buildings.
sticks for the screen
sleeping-roll

All this goes into a backpack, some things are grout equipment. Ontopof all this comes sleeping bag, food, a change of clothes, kitchen etc.

Us forces i Iraq and A-stan use a similar setup. I was wondering what you guys think about it.
We've had some sucess, when two enemy players yell Hit! when no sound is heard is fun :)

well i did read in a book that in VietNam some sniper teams took a security team with them but it was only 2 extra men and only on Rare op's , but if this works for you n your team , go for it ! i prefer to have jsut me n a spotter with my Tear near by but they only know the general loc of our hide.

Similar to spook, I like to role with only my spotter. Just because we are mobile and quick, and less likely to be seen since there are only two of us. If we get compromised, our team is radioed in and can give us some backup and fire support. But most of the time, if need be, we just high tale it out of there, and relocate to a better spot.

However, I am not disagreeing with your style derf, I think its pretty cool. I just have a different preference ;)

Ed Kugler in Vietnam used to go out with 5 or 6 team they called themselves the Rogues. "Dead Center"

And when it comes to Iraq they are using those Security teams to do room sweeps and are not worried as much about being stealthy or counter sniper fire; to the same degree we as airsofters are. As far as sniping is concerned i would focus on vietnam and earlier information, because in our mordern wars there is a large inbalance of skill that doesn't translate well in airsoft.

But it's all personal Preferance

You got a good point t-penguin, after I wrote the fist post we have changed to squad with or without attached sniperteam (me an my spotter) we still carry alot of the list inkluding our m4.
It's no big deal to use a dragbag once you've gotten used to it.
