i took these with a canon powershot, they are just snap shots but thought that they might be interesting to you all. 1. this is what it looks like outside when you are in the middle of a sand storm, yes it is really this color outside. 2. this is the amount of sand that collects on the inside of the truck, no getting away from it! 3. this is the amount of accumulated sand on your face!! 4. a look through night vision optics on a MK-19, 40mm auto grenade launcher. never got to shoot it though. 5. this is what it looks like though thermal imaging, really fun to play with, you can find lots of critters running around at night, they dont require light.
