It’s kind of hard to see what’s going on in this Photo Of The Day, but that’s how snipers like it. You are looking at a sniper from the Marinejegerkommandoen (MJK) / Norwegian Naval Special Operation Commando during an exercise and training. You can see the muzzle flash from his Heckler & Koch HK417 and you can just barely make out his Schmidt & Bender riflescope, and some of the rubber bands around it. Bottom-right you can see the dangerous end of the spotter’s firearm, most likely a suppressed Colt C8 carbine.
The motto of the Norwegian Marinejegerkommandoen (MJK) is “Prepare for tomorrow’s threats, today”.
Each day a different image from the World of firearms. We call this POTD, short for Photo Of The Day, and it’s our daily article series where we go to great lengths trying to find the most interesting pictures for you out there.
