    What does it take to lie in a hide site for days, covered in shrubbery, waiting to take the perfect shot?
    Enter the mind of a sniper. Far from being just sharpshooters, snipers are also reconnaissance experts, trained observers who can blend in with their environment and gather data on targets. Should they need to, they can use their precision rifles to take long-range shots. This kind of missions require superhuman patience, concentration and a keen eye for detail.
    A Norwegian sniper assigned to the NATO multinational battlegroup Lithuania takes us inside his mindset when he’s on the job. While in Lithuania, he’s learning how to integrate with his other NATO Allies through joint training.
    From moving into position to preparing camouflage, going without food or rest in all conditions, we take a look at what it means to be a sniper. Filmed in Rukla, Lithuania, a Norwegian sniper working in a two-man team at the multinational battlegroup talks us through the skills needed to succeed in the role.
