They don't use rangefinders for that ?
Also the sound of the m107 is so different in arma2, its sad
is that Restrepo FOB ?
They do, but this is for registering the weapon. Making sure you know how its going to handle. And literally what he has is a sketch of the terrain. He will draw the terrain from different positions that he will take up when engaging. All he has to do is look at his terrain sketch and go "ok they are next to this rock outcropping thats 923 meters and I dialed in my rifle for this when registering" and he will be sighted in.
Also in places like that it helps with understanding the prevailing winds that might be blowing through the valley, how terrain affects it, etc.
Below is a terrain sketch (though this is one drawn up for a Forward Observer).
And yea the default sounds in A2 suck ass. Good sound mods fix that though and there are a shit ton of them, though I prefer ACEX_SM, since its part of the entire ACE package, which makes sniping about 1000% more fun and realistic.
