Snipers practice in Curacao

snipersWILLEMSTAD - Snipers of the so-called 25 Recce Sniper Troop are practicing their shooting skills right here in Curacao.

They do this by firing from a helicopter or on a floating target from a ship. No luxury, according to the Dutch Ministry of Defense.

“Because these Navy officers can really use these skills with their weapons. Especially during an anti-piracy mission or in the detection of drug offenders in the Caribbean,” the ministry said on its website. Shooting from a helicopter or from a vessel belongs to the shooting program for advanced students.
