    POTD: The Eyes of German Army - Heckler & Koch G36 by Night

    Over the years, TFB’s POTD has gathered thousands of interesting images from around the world. If you’re interested in a special subject, you can use our search function. For instance, if you’re looking for photos of snipers just check here. Certain military units and countries can also be searched and found: the Green Berets can be found here and the U.S. Marines here. If you’re obsessed with the Kriss Vector, there are loads of images here (but never admit you are!). Today we have a set of pictures from the German Army.

    Here is the caption, machine translated from German.

    Remote scouts are the eyes of the army. They belong to the specialized forces of the army and operate deep in the enemy’s hinterland in order to obtain high-quality reconnaissance results there and to pass them on almost in real time. Undetected and as inconspicuous as possible, the remote scouts carry out this task. It is obvious that a lot of skill is required for such a demanding job. In the “Technology base camouflage and deception” in the Brandenburg town of Storkow, we were able to accompany prospective scouts from the Munster training center from the Army reconnaissance troop training area during training.

    Great picture of the Heckler & Koch G36s.
