POTD: Mk 14 Enhanced Battle Rifle

    Enhanced Battle Rifle M14

    Photo Of The Day: TFB’s favorite shots (pun intended) served on a daily basis. We don’t think you have seen today’s selection before, taken on the flight deck of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) during a live-fire exercise, in January 2022. We have an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician who fires an M14 Enhanced Battle Rifle. The rifle was originally built for use with units like the Navy SEALS and Delta Force within the United States Special Operations Command.

    The Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group is on a scheduled deployment in the U.S. Sixth Fleet area of operations in support of naval operations to maintain maritime stability and security, and defend U.S., allied and partner interests in Europe and Africa.

    The Mk 14 Enhanced Battle Rifle (EBR) is still in service, here with the Sage Chassis System.
