anti sniper

Λουντιμία Παυλιτσένκο. Υπολοχαγός και η κορυφαία ελεύθερη σκοπευτής του Κόκκινου Στράτου που σκότωσε 309 ναζιστικά σκουπίδια. • αυτό για όσους λένε “και οι φασίστες άνθρωποι ειναι” ή “μορφώστε τους ναζί”.

Supposed photo of at least one “Armagh Sniper”, nicknamed either “Goldfinger” or “Terminator”, armed with one of the dreaded Barrett M82 .50 caliber rifles that were smuggled into Ireland in 1986.

“What’s special about the Barrett is the huge kinetic energy… The bullet can just walk through a flak jacket. South Armagh was the prime place to use such weapon because of the availability of Brits. They came to dread it and that was part of its effectiveness.”  —Unidentified member of the South Armagh Brigade sniper teams

ok what the hell is the discussion/discourse about the m98 and black widow between you and @garrus-vakkarian what even are those

the M98-Widow and the Black Widow are anti-materiel sniper rifles that are featured in the Mass Effect series. @garrus-vakkarian likes the M98W, whereas I like the BW. (She also prefers the BW, if we’re going to get into technicalities, however).

Anyway the point is that the BW is overall better than the M98W but @garrus-vakkarian refuses to accept it. The point is that I’m right and she’s wrong and she hates that.
