In the middle and late stages of World War II, tank battles often occurred, and it is not an exaggeration to say that it was the key to the success or failure of the war. In the beginning, tanks had many disadvantages, for example, slow driving speed, small artillery, and short range. However, with the development of science and technology and continuous improvement and improvement, the current tank has become one of the most threatening weapons. It is also a heavy weapon with the most natural enemies in land combat.

A Sniper is Strong

Tanks are known as mobile steel fortresses on the battlefield. They are easy to defend and difficult to attack. With the advancement of the military industry, the protective performance of tanks is improving daily. The tanks we see have multiple doors and windows, but they are all tightly closed when fighting. Yes, so many weapons can only attack the tank’s exterior but cannot hit the soldiers inside. Generally, bombs are used to destroy tanks, but they must be powerful enough to set them on fire.

A Sniper is Strong

Someone once raised the question, why not let snipers deal with tanks? We all know that a sniper has good marksmanship and can often kill a target with a single blow. However, if a sniper is allowed to deal with a tank, he can only shoot the barrel of the tank, ignite it, and let it explode from the inside by itself, which is very difficult. First of all, the tank’s gun barrel is in an upward state when fired, and it is not fixed at a level. Even if a sniper hits every shot, hitting the gun barrel in an unstable state is difficult.

Furthermore, even if the sniper hits the barrel, it is only a “skin trauma” to the barrel, and it will not break the barrel at all, because the plate is very thick. In this way, the sniper will expose his position, and the sniper will be more dangerous. The long-distance and large-scale strafing of tanks is a fatal injury to snipers. If they are discovered and run a little slower, they will be bombarded by tanks.

Therefore, the sniper has good marksmanship and strong latent ability but is also helpless against some hard-shelled and well-closed device weapons. As far as tanks are concerned, they are extremely strong, and strafing their armor cannot penetrate it, just like scratching an itch. The only thing that can penetrate is the tank’s periscope. But this will not cause fatal damage to the tank.

On the contrary, it will expose its position, so whether it is shooting the tank barrel or the periscope, it will eventually be discovered by the opponent and fall into the cover of artillery fire. So snipers dare not hit tanks.
