Defensive tactics against terror
For a bodyguard, the primary tactic against sniper attacks is defensive: avoid exposing the client to the risk of being fired upon. This means that the client should ideally be within an armored vehicle or a secure structure. As well, when the client moves between a vehicle and a building, the client must be moved quickly to minimize the time window in which a sniper could take a shot and use a flanking escort of the bodyguards to block the view of the sniper and any potential shot that the sniper may take. The use of offensive tactics against snipers will occur very rarely in a bodyguard context, because it is very difficult for bodyguards to attempt to locate and fire back at a distant, concealed, or camouflaged sniper, even if the bodyguards has a carbine rifle or scoped sniper rifle in the trunk of the car.
