POTD: Swedish Sniper with PSG 90B Rifle

Category: Firearms

The Swedish Army is looking for a New Multi-Caliber Sniper Weapon System, until then they are using the Accuracy International AI AW (PSG 90B) in 7.62×51 mm. The riflescope is usually a Schmidt & Bender 3-12×50 PMII. The Swedish rifle is the Arctic Warfare version of the British L96A1, and it was adopted in 1990. Above you can see a sniper from Sweden aiming downrange during European Best Sniper Team Competition at Hohenfels, Germany.

Below you can see a sniper from Turkey in a similar position.

The 2021 European Best Sniper Team Competition is a U.S. Army Europe and Africa-directed, 7th Army Training Command hosted contest of skill that includes 8 participating NATO allies and partner nations at 7th ATC’s Hohenfels Training Area, August 8-14. The European Best Sniper Team Competition is designed to improve professionalism and enhance esprit de corps.
