I was running around an “unidentified ” camp in central Iraq, working on some company tasks, when I noticed the tricked out M2 HB on this Hummer. Vortex style flash suppressor, and some sort of optics on top of the rear receiver (though they’re not that visible because of the shadows), a multi rail shroud over the heat shield on the rear of the barrel, with a “honkin big” dual beam (white and IR) light mounted, and the large cubish green box appears to be a II device or a FLIR………………maybe one of your more technically knowledgeable readers knows what/which it is? Looks to me like someone’s planning on accurately placing some big hurt in the dark on deserving bad guys…………………..and they’d rather not mess up their sight picture with unnecessary muzzle flash! Ouch!!
I wonder what John Browning back in the day would think about this picture.
