Djibouti Snipers by MilitaryPhotos Djibouti Snipers by MilitaryPhotos
James Frank

Marines from 2nd Reconnaissance Platoon, Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, utilize snipers skills, fast-roping, and small arms fire while doing sustainment training in Djibouti. The 24th MEU remains as one of the most expedient units and rapid-response force ready to perform a full scale of missions ranging from humanitarian relief to full-scale combat operations.

Is that some new kind of heat gear? I hope they make it in multicam. I guess gillie suits are just to hot for the middle east then.

They wear overwhites, simply oversprayed with camo paints and some fine meshed netting.

Seems that an guy on snipershide was inspired with an old WWII image about an test in the US with wide clothing and handpainted camouflage.

Check Snipershide, the guy was from Holland and did test several spray and handpaint camo items in his freetime.

His whole psycho'l idea has written there, really amazing but after reading that post, it's so logical.
