Welcome to back Photo Of The Day. Each day, we showcase at least one stunning image that captures the beauty of the world of firearms. Above you see a GRUFE (Special Forces Group of the Peruvian Air Force) Special Operations Defense member dry firing at a target with an FN SCAR-H rifle (with a Schmidt & Bender riflescope) from a FAP Bell 412 helicopter during a helo-borne sniper training mission in support of Resolute Sentinel 2024 at Punta Lobos Air Base, Peru, June 5, 2024.

This kind of training helps the GRUFE members improve firing their weapon systems from a moving aircraft, build coordination with their pilots and improve overall readiness.

A Peruvian Air Force BO 105 helicopter, piloted by Capt. Paul Reyes Ortiz and Capt. Arthur Moran Yucra, BO 105 pilots assigned to Air Group 3, flies in formation over Lima, Peru, to a training area during a helo-borne sniper training mission in support of Resolute Sentinel 2024.
