NATO Battle Group Lithuania posted some great images, perfect for our Photo Of The Day. We have the Heckler & Koch MP7 In Eastern Europe – NATO Battle Group Lithuania

The MP7 is the latest submachine gun adopted by the Norwegian Armed Forces, now operational across various departments in all military branches. Its compact design makes it particularly suitable for personnel operating in confined spaces, such as within vehicles. Additionally, the MP7 features Picatinny rails, allowing for the attachment of aiming devices, lights, and other accessories.

The German Heckler & Koch MP7 serves as the ideal Personal Defence Weapon (PDW) for different soldiers.
Our Norwegian and German partners in the #eFP Battlegroup Lithuania equip a portion of their troops with it. #WeAreNato
The MP7 utilizes a 4.6 mm x 30 calibre, weighing only 1.8 kg and measuring a minimum of 42 cm. Despite its compact size, it makes us #StrongerTogether and it delivers the necessary punch when needed.

Look! There’s a perfect place for a suppressor!

    Ah yes, the forbidden truck gun.

    Are they practicing a mag dump per tango? As I recall that's what it takes to take a person down with that round. Looks like single shots to me which seems useless.

      @DrGreenthumb28 I never said it was not useful or appropriate. It is entirely appropriate for some missions. I understand these were used on the bin Laden mission as I have read. I am not disputing the use of this caliber. My point is that one round (as they have said) is not taking down a target. It's several rounds or more.
