Photo Of The Day: Right above is a German soldier engaging long-range targets in the middle of the night. He’s using a Remington Mk 21 Precision Sniper Rifle at the International Specialty Training Center (ISTC) Alpine Sniper Course, in Hochfilzen training area, Austria. The Alpine Sniper Course went on for two weeks and was designed to teach and train sniper teams the necessary skills to operate in mountainous terrain.
The photographer Sgt. Patrik Orcutt is highly skilled and we’ve seen many top-quality photos from him, and we hope he keeps them coming. Here he really caught the moment with what’s left of the muzzle flash. As you can see, the rifle is equipped with a lot of interesting gadgets, like LRD, Thermal clip-on and suppressor.
Below we see a Turkish Special Forces Sniper. He’s also using the Remington Mk 21 Sniper Rifle.
