I am not sure about the terrain but looking at the videos I do feel that atleast couple of the pigs can be taken by 2 different snipers. Please do correct me if I am wrong!
The terrain in the video is just a depiction. Moreover, it was a fast moving situation in an area with boulders and nullahs. Snipers don't work well in such environments.
For those wondering about the song at the end of the video, its the Assam Regiment's regimental song. Its a song about a WWII soldier named Badlu Ram who died but the QM forgot to strike his name off the listing of living soldiers and continued to draw rations for him. Sometime later the Japanese laid a siege (must be the one which culminated in the Battle of Imphal) cutting off all supplies and the extra rations drawn in Badlu Ram's name then came in handy and ensured that the troops didn't starve and managed to fend off the siege.
