Photo Of The Day and we have a pleasant mixture of firearms from various NATO countries taken at the NATO enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group Latvia. Above you have a great image of the SA80 A2 Individual Weapon, with a trigger-happy British soldier.
SA80 is the designation for a revolutionary family of assault weapons. On its introduction, it proved so accurate that the Army marksmanship tests had to be redesigned.
SA80 A2 comprises the Individual Weapon (IW) and the Light Support Weapon (LSW).
These are the British Army’s standard combat weapons. Made by Heckler and Koch, they fire NATO standard 5.56 x 45mm ammunition.
Participating in field exercises alongside our NATO partners deployed throughout the Baltics is one of the ways we demonstrate our determination and ability to act as one against any aggression.
