The Twilight Platoon by laaseensLD The Twilight Platoon by laaseensLD
There was only war starting from 1939 to 1945 and there was nothing more the Germans feared from the Soviets than the section of snipers from the Twilight Platoon.

So here we have my first World War II picture with ponies in it, what a grand accomplishment. One interesting thing about this drawing, it took me so long (thanks to Skyrim) that you can see me improving my skills in this picture. I started with the buildings, went on to Twilight , then to Preobrazhenets [link] and finished with Spike. Also I hope that I came relatively close to replicating Preobraznets face, because with all that equipment it doesn't even look close to you, my good man, hope you can forgive me.

Anyway next time I will be drawing Fluttershy who will be lending a helping hand to the US First Army so that the invasion of Normandy is successful, so stay tuned.

Also don't forget to check out my Pony marine drawings.

The purple book - ''Wind And Gravitation''
The blue book - ''How to become a sniper''
The box - ''Love and tolerance''
On the brick wall - her kill count......it kinda speaks for itself.....

Indeed. Though ... for snipers, staying for so long in the same spot, and letting the barrel of their rifles sticking so much out of the building ...
What the hay did they learn in snipers' boot camp?

Possibly there is a battle going on further off screen, and they are covering the artillery position?

@~Shtebbie: Don't overlook the weapons that are being used. Twilight and the standing sniper are using a Mosin-Nagant rifle, Spike is next to a PPSh-41 sub-machine gun, and I believe the sitting sniper is holding an SVT-40, a Soviet rifle.

What's awesome to me is this is *kind* of accurate, their were female snipers in Stalingrad (I don't know about other engagements), and one of them had a ridiculous amount of kills for a sniper.
Many of them were officers.

So since Reznov is also Russian and he used to be a sniper, then he would be very proud to see this. ^^
