Photo Of The Day and we hope you’re having a fantastic day! The Korps Mariniers, or Royal Netherlands Marine Corps, is the amphibious infantry component of the Royal Netherlands Navy. Established in 1665, the Korps Mariniers is one of the oldest marine corps in the world. They use both the Colt Canada C7 and the Colt Canada C8 as individual weapons and of course the FN MAG general-purpose machine gun.

Here they can be seen in Mahlwinkel, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. Did you know that Mahlwinkel used to host the EuroBigGame Series, one of Europe’s largest paintball tournaments? The expansive playfield, set on a former Russian army base, attracted a lot of Paintballers from across the globe twice a year.
