ENGAGEMENT

OF MOVING TARGETS by SNIP1ER (US Army) 

Engaging moving targets not only requires the Sniper to determine the target distance and wind effects on the round, but he must also consider the lateral and speed angle of the target, the round's time of flight, and the placement of a proper lead to compensate for both. These added variables increase the chance of a miss. Therefore, the Sniper should engage moving targets when it is the only option.
