Tigergirl Sniper by Artraccoon Tigergirl Sniper by Artraccoon
A commission for "Goliath" at A-Kon, to his specs.

This Tigergirl is wearing Vietnam War era camo pattern on a modern style outfit( the camo pattern is also known as "tiger stripe")
Her sniper rifle is a 20mm, and is purely my own contrivance.

Ok I just have to ask. What is she shooting at? I mean is it a vehicle or is it something alive?

I'd imagine that it's a vehicle, 20mm would be a bit much for person...maybe good for a large creature. Usually 20mm rifles are used against material targets, but no doubt in history someone has used them on somebody.

Since this was a commission piece the details as to target would lay with "Goliath".

I really like the detail given to the outfit and weaponry. That camo pattern fits her so well. :)

Thank you...it might have seemed cheesy, but I had to use Vietnam era "Tiger Stripe cammo" on this piece.

The colors of the cammo contrasted nicely with her fur and hair, yet held the military mood well.

The weapon was a contrivance using parts from various other real world large sniper rifles and some custom parts of my own design. The mechanics of it should work though.

It's very nice!

The one suggestion I would have made was to eliminate the spots where you can see the background under her right leg.

It makes it seem like she's not putting any weight on that rock.

I also would have preferred the gun design if the barrel were on top, which would have given the breech block more room to maneuver. I'm no expert, though...

Almost all armies, before and during World War II, experimented with 20mm or slightly larger anti-armor, shoulder fired rifles. The recoil must have been astronomical. Your weapon is an excellent design, I'd like to see more of it.

Your young lady sniper is outstanding. I'd really like to see more of her.

Great artwork.

That rifle seems realistic to me. Anti-material/anti-armor rather than sniper, but still realistic. Similar in concept to the South African Mechem NTW-20 (available as a 20x110mm anti-tank cannon or as a 14.5x114mm anti-tank rifle).

It is a pretty mean gun, I'm glad it looks right.

Strange thing is that even when I come up with such a contrived weapon, I do try to consider how it's mechanics will work.

Thank you, I had to keep to a "modern military" look as per the client's request, but he also wanted my design style.

Yeah, the weapon looks pretty brutal...I'm glad that it does...nothing worse than a wimpy gun design.

Now that's what I call an Anti-tank rifle.

It would've done well during the "Golden Age" of AT rifles(1935-1942).

Nowadays it'd be considered a "anti-material" rifle.
Still would be used against light AFVs like scout cars(random thought note: why do keep seeing it used on poor old BRDMs?) and APCs.

It would be a lot of fun to fire a 20mm rifle, but ammo would soooo expensive!
And I'd hope the rifle gets braced well, or it would beat the hell out of your shoulder( firing my 30.06 for an hour at the range does that to me!).

The rifle is almost pure fiction, with parts from several real world weapons being referenced.

If I recall correctly, almost all anti-tank rifles are recoilless. Otherwise the kick would break bones.

You may be confusing "Recoiless rifles" with old anti-tank rifles.
Trust me there's plenty of recoil from an AT rifle. Sure the frame, spring, and gas tube suck up some recoil, but ahh...just some.

I've fired an old Boys AT rifle and that thing had a fearsome kick( even anchored well), and I've seen an mighty Lathi 20mm be fired...yikes!!
Still...the Artraccoon dreams of somehow getting a Solothurn S18-1000 20mm.
My buddy wants either a Soviet PTRD or a PTRS AT rifle.
