Cool, man!

Unfortunately, that rifle is probably useless against the frontal hull of a Tiger. He'd have to beVERY lose to puncture 100 mm of solid steel.

you know, if everyone could be crazy in a war, i dont really think they are going to take a Tank head on ,even with a rifle like this.  

even, flanking would be much greater idea, and aim down for the exposed mobiles parts to cripple it.

extondude Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2012
If i recall the US didn't use anti-tank rifles during ww2, the british and the british commonwealth used the BOYS anti-tank rifle and the soviets had the PTRD and the PTRS

Sorry man, a ww2 soldier with a barret Shit the tiger resist also the sherman, and that man is a tank hunter? Beautifull work, but he can't be a tank hunter.

Looks like a Team Fortress franchise relation...
TempleGuardian Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2012
I think, to hunt the Tiger-tank you need more than a rifle. The canon of the Sherman (I mean not the Firefly) was bigger than it, but useless again the Tiger.

I need this gun! for ma teachers!
NikitaTarsov Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
Yeah - WW2 uniform, funky googles and an M82(called after the year of designing - 1982) is freaky.
It was btw the first american ATR, russians used some kind of ATRīs in WW2, but this was more a cannon with a bipod......WW2 tanks can be killed by a .50 HMG(and M82 uses the same ammo as this most known BMG .50 just with more power and precision)

m82 in ww2??

oh boy, this guy has ALOT of tank hunting to do then !

What "Tiger Hunter"? From this Tanks bounced a lot of Sherman Ammo off... Most of them had technical defects, or they caved in, because they were too heavy. A hit from that Thing wouldnīt be heared inside the Tiger. But nice Paint and Picture!
TempleGuardian Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2012
Tiger Hunter is from a mission while or soon after D-day. Behind the shore of the Normandy were a lot of big hedges, where nothing could enter or leave the roads. And on those roads the German tanks moved. At first it was bad for the allies, but soon they began to hide and do surprise attackes with bazookas. And the nickname of it was "Tiger-Hunting".

Hunting real tanks with that peashooter?

BTW, if that isn't a Barrett than I'm not Jargastanzl Vug.

Looks good, could you make a tutorial of this? :)

What anti-tank rifle is that?
i don`t know it
CzechBiohazard Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awesome! :D
ZzVinniezZ Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
forgot the scope for his Sniper XD
Kuroch Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2010
You can use this custom Barrett with an iron sight!
Matt2010 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2010
Great piece of work, I love the mixture of old and new. "Tiger hunter" though?

Maybe more like "Kubelwagen hunter" with a .50 rifle. ;)
crowhitewolf Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
you could had made the PTRS anti tank rifle,not modern Barret...
DansTonCulJeSuis Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2010
I don't think so, the PTRS-41 is a Soviet weapon. And I think it's a very nice idea to modify a Barrett and make it more "World War 2 style".

Anyways, the pic is great. ^^
soundwave3591 Featured By Owner May 9, 2010
that's an M82 Barret Sniper Rifle w/o the scope!
protagionist Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2009
it looks great but i think the mag looks way bigger than a 12.7mm i reckon its more like 25mm but still cool
Nolo84 Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Some serious anachronism you've got going on here. :)

Nice,I think there's something wrong with his right shoulder....

But,It Still Nice^^
technoborg Featured By Owner May 9, 2009

Nicklaus725 Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2009
it's a mix of the two ages you know the alternate history stuff
MacArther Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2009  Student Writer
Awesome! I love the mix of modern (Barret .50 sniper) with the "old war" feel of World War Two!
graffitixx94 Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2009

WelderFace Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist

i wondered if it was a Barret too for a sec(wtf) but i remember those other clunkers like the Boys Mk.1 and such. i wouldn't want to try it on a Tiger for damn sure. anyway very nice work, have to check out the rest of your gallery.

A .50 caliber high velocity rifle might be able to pierce the top turret armor. A tiger (pre-1944) mounted an inch of armor on the top of the turret. If you used an AP round, you might be able to pierce an inch of steel, but probably only at a range of 800 yards or closer, a difficult task, for sure.
warman707 Featured By Owner May 4, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Very true. Although the anti tank rifle could pierce early war tanks armor, the thicker they got the harder it was to take out a tank. But there were other ways of taking out a tank with the anti tank rifle.

One way was to hit key joints and spaces on the tank to make it imobile. Like the point were the turret and tank body met. Shooting there would stop the turret from turning. Then they would shoot the treads to basically render the tank useless. haha!

I'm sure you knew all this already, but once I start on a subject I tend to carry on. haha!

Perfectly all right! Hahaha, I'm a history teacher... We ALL ramble. XD

Ahh being a history buff is a gift and a curse. haha! :D

XD You said it, buddy! Sure lends itself to interesting situations from time to time, too!
