Because scientists are still conducting research on the functional capabilities of the P-41 Long-range Cannons these soldiers wield, the military has not yet officially assigned these troopers to specific units. Rather, these snipers function as testers, marching alongside small engineering squads who monitor the rifles' performance. Originally intending to develop a small canon, developers succeeded in reducing the size of the weapon such that it could function as a portable piece of equipment. What they created was a sniper rifle capable of picking off a defenseless opponent from far outside the field of battle with a single shot. The imperial army has yet to sanction the device, but researchers hope to rename the P-41 such that its title more accurately reflects its function.
sniper is a highly trained marksman who operates alone, in a pair, or with a sniper team to maintain close visual contact with the enemy and engage targets from concealed positions or distances exceeding the detection capabilities of enemy personnel.A
