There's no counter called a sniper, but there is a card that's playable as an action called Sniper which will reduce the total Command Action Points of your opponent for that turn.

Jonathan,
We had played around with snipers, but found that they did not contribute enough to the overall "combined arms" battle to warrant a separate counter. Also, counters would give these units away. Snipers were prevalent enough though, that we felt they could affect the command and logistical structure (since snipers did target officers), so we added the sniper card that Scott mentioned.

Thank you very much gents, your game is on pre-order , cant wait as it looks like what Ive been looking for that will be simple yet a step up from Memoir '44 and it deals with the Ost Front which is a particular favorite of mine. All the best, Jonathan

A quick P.S. when people say the counters are 1 inch thick does this mean they are actually one inch tall (laying flat?) or are they one inch from top to bottom? TIA.

They are one inch in height and width. If they were one inch thick, I guess they'd be cubes, rather than counters!

Thickness-wise, I believe they are just slightly thicker than Carcassone tiles. If you look in the gallery there's a picture comparing the CoH counter to a Carcassone tile and an ASL counter.
