In my day in 4eme esc, the "tireur d'elite" was actually the new guy if he could shoot or not never came into consideration, simple fact on the orbat we had 1 bolt action per section and some one had to carry it !!. The fact that we had VAB HOT'S 15 tonne APC'S with a missile rack on top, 4 missiles in the rack and another 8 in the vehicule, Hot missiles = 4Km in 17 Sec wire guided 3 VAB'S in a section/ group, plus a MILAN post, seriously wtf would we do with a bolt action. but the morale of the Legion is " Don't ask questions just do the job your given" oh I forgot to mention each VAB had a Browning 1/2 inch as well. each FAMAS can launch grenades, and if it goes tits up, each legionnaire has his opal ( 3 inch knife for making your casse croute) and would willingly show you the Camerone spirit..
