    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    The metal tube, theres no problem with that. but the problem is, that is not very interesting to have just the tube
    Ill give another example, deact mortars, deact grenades are equally not allowed.

    Auwere is part of the Narva Battlefield, Ida Virumaa , Estonia. The sniper shield would have been built into a trench or bunker system allowing the sniper to work at head height.
