So I Recognized the Soldier from the Cover Art


Recommended Posts

So a while ago I made this post in the CM: Afghanistan forum showing that the cover art from that game was based off of a picture of a US Marine being barely missed by enemy fire.

 

Well, a friend of mine linked me a post on reddit that has the SAW gunner that the CM: Shock Force cover art was based on. Apparently it is a picture of a 1st Armored Division soldier in Ramadi, Iraq sometime in 2006.

 

Here is the original picture and the cover art side-by-side.

I find this very interesting!

I wonder where the line is drawn regarding copyright infringement.

But I guess they asked the permission of the reddit poster.

Best regards

If you look at the Wikipedia page, it says the image is public domain.
