Pakistan Army wins international sniping competition


Pakistan Army soldiers have won an international sniping and shooting competition in Beijing, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Thursday.


According to an ISPR statement, the team representing Pakistan Army secured first position in all individual and team events.

In July, a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) C-130 Hercules transport aircraft won the Concours D’ Elegance trophy at the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) Show 2016 at Royal Air Force Base Fair Ford in the United Kingdom.


More than 200 aircraft from 50 countries participated in the competition, with the Pakistani contingent stealing the show and winning the trophy.

Last year, a team of Pakistan Army won the gold medal in the premier patrolling event of the British Army - Exercise Cambrian Patrol - beating around 140 teams from armies across the globe.
