    36 Sniper teams from 19 countries gathered to see who was best (PHOTOS+ VIDEO)
    The Europe Best Sniper Team Competition being held this week is like the World Cup of military marksmanship, but with tougher competitors.

    Held at the U.S. 7th Army’s Grafenwoehr Training Area in Bavaria for the past week, according to the Army the event tests “marksmanship skills, physical prowess, and mental agility while engaging in team-building competition.”

    In all some 36 teams from 17 NATO countries — Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, United Kingdom and the U.S — joined by heavily armed and Russia-adjacent neutrals Finland and Sweden, faced off in a set of professional skill tests.

    Besides the sometimes-wild camo schemes (have you seen Belgium’s jigsaw pattern?), there is a ton of really nice hardware on display.
