POTD: The M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle in Jordan

Going over the top with the U.S. Marines. In our Photo Of The Day, the show is performed by USMC Marines as they conduct fire and maneuver training on a fire team assault range in Jordan. They’re armed with the M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle made by Heckler & Koch, and it looks like a hot, dry day in the desert.

Move swift as the Wind and closely-formed as the Wood. Attack like the Fire and be still as the Mountain.” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Let’em Have It

A Marine with @5thMarReg, assigned to @SPMAGTF_CR_CC, fires his M27 Infantry Assault Rifle during a squad assault in Jordan. Marines rehearsed squad-level tactics to defeat a notional mechanized infantry unit and maintain readiness.

Thanks for visiting today, please come back tomorrow for more excellent photos from the World of firearms. You never know what’s next!

      @Kinetics I don't particularly like the sig gun or belt fed but I understand that other people do
