POTD: Norwegian Special Operation Commando – Door Gunner

    Norwegian Special Operation Commandos (NORSOC) don’t always ride in helicopters, but when they do they ride the Bell 412 SP with a Minigun on the side. That’s the topic for our Photo Of The Day. Their standard firearms are Colt Canada C8SFW, C8CQB or the Heckler & Koch HK416.

    Here we can see one of their door gunners, in a Bell from the 339 Special Operation Aviation Squadron. There appears to be one on the other side as well.
