If you are playing your sniper as a Specialist Sniper then (as with the
in the SG rules book) he is "attached for administration purposes" to
squad and once detached becomes a fully independant figure. Mind you
day snipers will not be operating close to large groups of friendlies

If you are playing a squad with a trooper who just happens to be armed
a sniper rifle as his specialist weapon then he would be utilised as a
normal trooper would; he isn't a specially trained sniper and shouldn't
all the advantages of the Specialist Sniper.

In the games we've played snipers dominate the game too much and we will
only use them in specific scenarios.
