Snipers from the 2nd Commando Regiment (2 Cdo Regt) travelled to Canberra to practice advanced sniper techniques and stalking skills at Majura Range on 9 April 2014. The training covered the tactical aspects of sniper training with a focus on stalking skills.

The stalking activity included initial patrolling, reconnaissance of the target, development of firing positions, and engaging the enemy. The sniper teams had to achieve all of this without being detected by enemy spotters. Depending on firing positions, snipers engaged their target at ranges up to 900 metres.

2 Cdo Regt is a Special Operations Commando unit under direct command of Special Operations Headquarters (SOHQ). 2 Cdo Regt maintains an integral ability to conduct discriminate offensive Special Operations within complex environments. 2 Cdo Regt is a scalable organisation capable of operating from Team to Commando Company Group level.
