    POTD: French Snipers with PGM Hécate II

    TFB’s Photo Of The Day is where you can discover the world of firearms through a camera lens. Every day we run a new theme, selected pictures, a short story and credit to the person behind the lens. Today we have some HOT images of French snipers and spotters from the 35e régiment d’infanterie.

    – 4th company – Last week as part of an operational preparation, The Scorpions were present in Mourmelon to carry out shootings and various exercises.

    “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
    – Ansel Adams

    These look like state-of-the-art Hensoldt spotters. I wish I had one.
