Original – A Dazzler attached to a M240B machine gun during the Iraq War.
Reason
I think the file is high quality and provides encyclopedic value due to it being one of the few images of a Dazzler being used in the Iraq War; and it shows some detail in how gritty the environment was due to the light film of dirt and dust in the recesses of the Dazzler and M-240.

  • Oppose. It's not a particularly well composed photo IMO. It's an interesting subject, particularly the history of such devices, but I don't think this picture really makes you want to know more. It's difficult to tell what exactly we're looking at and to me, it would look more like a microphone than a weapon if not for the big red 'fire' button. Ðiliff «» (Talk) 09:13, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
