POTD: And I was in the Darkness and Darkness I Became

    Photo Of The Day – The title of today’s photo could refer to a song by Florence + Machine. Or, more likely, it could also have something to do with the fact that snipers like to hide in the dark under their ghillie suits.

    Look again, I get a feeling from The Nazgûls and The Lord Of The Rings

    This sniper is from the Dutch 11 Luchtmobiele Brigade (Airmobile Brigade). You can find their homepage here and their Instagram is available here.

    The fact that the Dutch Army uses the Barrett M82 / Barrett M107A1s is known to our readers, especially if you read Matthew’s article on the subject. The rifle uses the .50 BMG (12.7×99mm NATO) caliber and the action is semi-automatic.

    These great photos were taken by Hille James Combat Photographer.

    TFB’s POTD is now on our 7th year of bringing you high-quality photographs from the world of firearms every day.
