Naked Army figurine: Sniper

This Naked Army figurine depicts an Australian Regular Army Sniper returning from an overwatch task in Uruzgan Province, Southern Afghanistan.

His equipment is a mix of issued and non-issued webbing and has been constructed to be practical & comfortable, with enough ammunition & food to sustain him on the battlefield for at least 24 hours.

The weapon he carries is the SR25, also known as the MK11 Mod 0. He has removed the standard issued Leopold scope and replaced it with the Schmidt & Bender scope, enabling him to effectively engage targets out to and beyond 800 metres. He wears his custom designed yowie hood which he would have modified to suit the surrounding vegetation and terrain.
