    Andy old chum, I thought I move these pictures of GERMAN snipers to their own thread out of the ALLIED Snipers one.

    Deja Vu! Weren't these posted before?

    Regardless great pics Andy! I have respect for Snipers who "live" in some really "interesting" conditions for prolonged periods of time. Didn't Japanese snipers tie themselves to trees for days on end?

    This one appears to have a armoured shield in a prepared defensive position.

    I'm quite surprised at the lack of Italian and especially Japanese Sniper pictures on the net.

    Yes, both are difficult to find.
    The best I could do for a jap sniper was the photo below. The title stated that the soldier pictured was a sniper even though his possibly scoped rifle is partially obscured by the flag.

    Ref the Japanese Sniper shot:

    Yeah I saw that John but I tended to think it was unlikely having a bayonet fitted as they tend to have a dramatic effect on accuracy.

    Still a great shot though :)

    A sniper with a bayonet? That gives the saying "up close and personal" a whole new meaning!

    Hi Drew, its always a pleasure looking at these sniper rifles, from the right end that is:D
    I look at some of the German wepons and can not help thinking that they look quite advanced for when they where made especiallly later in the war (fg42 mp44 mg42), that is not to say that our wepons where dated, the bren and enfields where fine wepons too
