Photo Of The Day – Here you get an insight into what firearms, optics, uniforms and equipment soldiers from various units use. In this case (above) we have a rifleman from the U.S. Marine Corps as he participates in military operations in urban terrain (MOUT). This happened during the Supersquad 2020 Competition at the Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California in August 2020. The competition tests the Marines’ skills and determines which is the best squad within 1st MARDIV, and I’m sure that the units that don’t win get to hear it for the rest of the year.
In the picture above you can clearly see Heckler & Koch on the lower. The rifle also has a riflescope from Leupold and a suppressor. Can you guess the name?
The carbine below is made by Colt. Looks like a very hot day.
