Welcome to TFB’s own Photo Of The Day. As the name implies, this page is dedicated to rare and unique pics which are updated daily. Behind the Heckler & Koch 40mm Grenade Machine Gun (GMG) we have British Army Pte. Warren from Poacher Troop waiting for a firing order. With a weight of almost 30 kilograms, the GMGs are usually mounted to a vehicle.
The location is the Bemowo Piskie Training Area, Poland, and the images are from last September 2021.
Poacher Troop’s mission is to scout where the enemy is and then delay them with speed and lethality, enabling Battle Group Poland to be prepared to respond in a time of crisis.
