After I posted a photo of a German Soldier’s MP7 taken Afghanistan, readers emailed in more photos of the MP7 in Afghanistan. The first shows an MP7 being used by a
Viking Norwegian IEDD/EOD specialist. The MP7′s very low recoil, high rate of fire and penetration make it the ideal weapon for a IED specialist, much better than the Beretta M9 we saw used in the Hurt Locker movie. The second photo is of two Bundeswehr soldiers in Afghanistan. The solider on the right is carrying the standard H&K G36.
[ Many thanks to Mathias, Mike & Kjetil for emailing me the photos. ]
