DANISH INTERNATIONAL SNIPER COMPETITION 2021 (DISC 2021) GET STARTED!
Summer is upon us and it’s time again for the 2nd Brigade’s annual sniper competition after cancellation in 2020. A total of 18 teams are participating this year, three of which are foreign (Estonia, Holland and Norway ). This year, all of the Army’s combat troop regiments offer dancing with teams from the Royal Life Guard, the Gardehus Regiment, the Jutland Dragon Regiment and the Schleswig Foot Regiment with the XIII Light Infantry Battalion and specially invited participants.
All participants have on arrival on Monday been able to present a negative Coronatest and were subsequently also vaccinated. There is a great focus from the brigade on the risk of infection, where just a single infection can lead to cancellation of the competition.
The first official day of the program in Jægerspris was mainly about the teams having the opportunity to land, register and prepare. After an initial briefing for the competition, including the program and all the moving parts behind it, the teams spent most of the afternoon shooting their sniper rifles and spotter weapons in preparation for the competition’s actual start on Tuesday, with 600 points at stake.
The competition activities run from Tuesday to Thursday and culminate on Thursday evening in the prize-giving and closing event.
Good luck to all the participating teams and good fight out there!
There’s a variety of firearms here, for instance, the Colt Canada C20 DMR and sniper rifles from Accuracy International. The new C20 is replacing the HK 417S.
This looks easy until you realize you need to hit inside each black dot.
The Colt Canada C20 Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR), suppressed. Typically a Schmidt & Bender 3-20×50 PMII in a Spuhr mount is used.
