POTD: Modern Swedish Vikings in US Bayous

    Modern Swedish Vikings in US Bayous

    Photo Of The Day and we have some Modern Swedish Vikings in the bayou around the Stennis Space Center in Hancock County, Mississippi (United States). This is a NAVY partnership between the countries, and they are in fact a Swedish special boat unit training on the location.

    It seems they kept the Minigun warm. Looks like a lot of fun. Not sure if being a boat gunner beats being a door gunner? What’s your take if you were looking for a job?

    Both day and night…

    All of the previous POTD pictures with soldiers from Sweden and the USA together have been from Swedish soil: “U.S. Marines in Arvidsjaur, Sweden“, “U.S. Army Special Forces Train With Swedish Home Guard” and “U.S. Special Forces with Swedish Ak 4B Rifles“.
