Welcome back to the Photo Of The Day! Here is the place where we honor outstanding photos and the person behind the camera. Above you’re looking at a German Army Sniper adjusting his scope during morning shooting rehearsals at the International Specialty Training Center’s (ISTC) Desert Sniper Course. The location is Chinchilla, Spain and the event took place earlier this year in July. Below you see a Dutch Special Forces sniper.
ISTC is a multinational education and training facility for tactical-level, advanced and specialized training of multinational special operations forces and similar units, employing the skills of multinational instructors and subject matter experts.
Below is another Dutch Special Forces sniper engaging targets downrange during morning shooting rehearsals.
An Italian Special Forces sniper team engages long-distance targets.

The location looks amazing for any sniper. Until the wind and mirage pick up during the day I guess.
