    MOD: OPSEC. No one is to post details of the locations of ANY part of this competition until after DFPO do so.
    Ignore this. instant ban. No second chance. There is a resurgent nationalist terror threat out there.They wouldn't give a second thought to taking out DF members alongside UKAF members. It has taken years of hard work and building of trust to get the DoD and higher to agree to this event. It can all be swept away in a nano second because of an incident.
    Think before you post.

    Interesting that they're using the Steyr as a spotter rifle. Also the subdued 7BN flash
    I knew a simple soldier boy.....
    Who grinned at life in empty joy,
    Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
    And whistled early with the lark.

    In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
    With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
    He put a bullet through his brain.
    And no one spoke of him again.

    You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
    Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
    Sneak home and pray you'll never know
    The hell where youth and laughter go.
