U.S. Army Special Operations Target Interdiction Course : Sniper Training and Employment. SOTIC is the “other” US Army sniper course, but the one for special operations and unconventional warfare soldiers. SOTIC has actually been around longer then the standard US Army sniper school, having been established in the early 1980s, and it has been through a series of reorganizations now to where there are different levels of Special Operations sniper training. Some are even conducted at the various groups. This book is the US Army training manual for the older SOTIC from the 1990s and it isn’t the best “reading” but its packed full of info. The Amazon version has the same material, but is larger format with nicer and higher quality cover and pages.
