You’re watching and reading TFB’s Photo Of The Day. Just above you look at U.S. Marines assigned to Bravo Company, Battalion Landing Team 1/5, 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, as they fire their M4 carbines at various surface threats. They’re based on the Amphibious Assault Ship USS Boxer. A word of warning from my side, never ever use barrel support, or you will get a large shift in impact. That’s why we have free-floating barrels, with handguards.

Below: A deck with a pretty expensive parking lot. The U.S. Marine Corps AH-1Z Viper is attached to Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 165 (Reinforced), 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, and is landing on the flight deck of the amphibious assault ship USS Boxer (LHD 4).
