Gunnery Sergeant Carlos Norman Hathcock II was a USMC sniper with a service record of 93 confirmed kills and more than 300 probable kills during the Vietnam War. Hathcock's record and the extraordinary details of the missions he undertook made him a legend in the Marine Corps.
Hathcock also used a M2 HMG .50cal with scope to take out a Vietcong over 2,000m away, earning him the longest kill record, although this was broken in 2003 by a Canadian sniper and MacMillan TAC-50 rifle. He died in 1999 after suffering from Multiple Sclerosis.
