On December 1944, Himmler had issue an order to step up the use of sniper among the German armed forces. To answer the call, soldiers from both the Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS had signed up and received sniper training. Our impression, SS-Sturmmann "Helmut Thorvald" signed up immediately and quickly earned his “marksman 1st Class” badge in the sniper school. Helmut was issued with a converted Kar 98K rifle with a high turret mount 4 power Kahles telescopic sight.
Helmut quickly earned his Scharfschutzenabzeichen (Snipers’ badge, 2nd class) and advancing to the next level with confirmed 60 enemies’ elimination.
Helmut was also issued with a pair of M44 trouser made with newly designed SS-Leibermuster pattern, which had less signature when viewed through infrared night vision optics. A camouflage facemask in SS-Eichenlaubmuster pattern is also worn to help him blend in more with the environment at the Kustrin bridgehead at the outskirts of Berlin.
