    Ah

    isnt that sweet
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Pic in today's Irish Times shows a Turkish Army sniper team, said to be taking part in an operation in Northern Iraq. it's a three-man team: sniper, spotter, and a guy with an MP5, presumably providing local security.

    Thanks for posting the pics Fireplace. I had a look around and I couldn't find them.

    Yeah Muzzle, you're right, a HK33, sorry 'bout that. Any idea about the sniper rifle in the same picture?

    Finally got a look at some of the new sniper kit during the week.It all made by Arktis in the U.k.
    Kit consists of,
    Sniper ghillie vest.
    Sniper smock
    sniper waterproof jkt(t.i proof aswell)
    Sniper salopettes.

    Salopettes even have a dump flap at the rear! All the kit is very well thought out and expensive to boot.The salopettes are retailing for nearly 200 hundred stering alone.
    Heres a few photos of some of the kit in british dpm.All the issue stuff is in ip-dpm as per.

    Three times with three slight differences!
    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
    Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

    Thats not a rank epaulette.Its an attachment point for the sniper rifle sling for off hand firing positions,.It is mounted on each upper arm.Rank as normal when worn is mounted on the chest.Did ye also notice the "pit zips" and the roll away face veil mounted on the hood?Nice kit.

    Oh and furthur to my comments about the HK 417's .i am reliably informed that they are held by the IWW for isssue to whicever infantry unit gets to represent us at the international competition.ARW did this year and they had the new Augs so thats why we havent seen em yet.Or so i am told.Will try to confirm.:wink:

    Go figureHaving said that its not the first time this has been done .There are a number of Steyrs mounted with Elcan wildcat sights that are held by whichever unit is tasked with representing the DF at bisley each year.It was 4 bn last year i believe.Sights were procured in order to compete with the likes of the Susat sight on the SA-80 which has a greater magnification.

    yep it was
    The people of England have been led in Mesopotamia into a trap from which it will be hard to escape with dignity and honour. They have been tricked into it by a steady withholding of information. The Baghdad communiqués are belated, insincere, incomplete.....It is a disgrace to our imperial record, and may soon be too inflamed for any ordinary cure.We are to-day not far from a disaster.
