        Great shot.

        Whoopsie, Boss. I don't think we got the right cammo nets for this kinda thing.

              Fine, now show us a pic of the arty battery in the snow. Green nets in the middle of a snowy field make fine targets.

                The camo nets have two sides, one for summer, one for winter, the winter side is lighter and white ribbons are usually weaved into the nets during winter. It's rare to have totally white fields even in winter.

                  "But sir what about camoflauge?"

                  "Meh, just throw some camnets over'em and we'll be fine."

                      The dandelions tend to close their flowerheads during the night, so early in the morning fog it might not look that yellow at all



                      Also, while the camo net can be seen it's still difficult to conclude what's under it, atleast in theory.

                        Your pic of the infantry does not support that claim.

                        I've spent enough time in the field during winter that I can't buy into that claim.

                        All pic and vids of the Winter War in Finland and Russia does not support that claim.

                        Just this past winter snow covered the fields and forest down here from Dec into late March early April.

                          The pic was taken at a shooting range and in an exceptionally snowy winter.

                          Snow only covers nice flat fields with a totally white blanket. Any decent vegetation will ruin that, especially after the first windy day.

                          Something like this



                          A decently set up camo net can hide equipment in such an enviorment. By the way, such wide and open spaces are quite rare in Estonia.

                            So you still use the AK-4? Damn nice weapon especially for sharpshooting, a bit heavy my dad tells me.

                              In this situation would it not make more sense to put the Guns near the tree line which might allow them to pass clump of trees or bushes. Notice I said might.
