Re: Designated Shooter
Someone else can give more info on this but I know Russia fields a designated marksman with each squad(I think it's each squad). That's what the Dragunov is, not a sniper rifle, but a DMR, designated marksman rifle.
And I have also read about certain US troops being issued with an M-14 DMR.

If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government --and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws. -- Edward Abbey in Abbey's Road, p.39 (Plume, 1979)
