    The most successful snipers in general were the soviet women. I don't know what they used for a symbol. Sickle and tampon?

    The all time best was a Finn.

    Soviet and Finnish symbols would be a little bit better

    Looks more like a couple of lightning bolts portrayed through the use of graphic drawing to me.

    All PC BS aside - this SS symbol has got to be intimidating as hell to the enemy
    Personally I would have went with your basic skull and crossbones on a nice background of USMC red

    Ok, so the Waffen-SS used Runic script; they also used the skull and crossbones (Totenkopf). The SS also died in 1945-to young people today, that's ancient history, so how come an organization defunct for over 65 years gets an all time exclusive on the use of a script and a symbol that have both seen considerable use before and since? Much ado about nothing.
