Please help me increase my collection of vintage photos of operators with MP5s.
I'll accept other cold war subguns, especially any MPL/MPKs.
>>37568304Is that an FN MAG? The fuck were these guys doing?
>>37568315Yes, an L7A2 GPMGhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Force_Research_Unit
>>37568337>North IrelandAh, alright.
this legit looks like a photo shoot
>>37568727I love that picture. There's something about the color gradient and texture that makes me feel like it should be some framed renaissance artwork.
Hoping for someone with a collection.
>you were born too late to be a Mp5 operatorWhy do I even live?
>>37573992How will we live through the AR15pocalypse?
>>37573902I love the ghetto-rigged tacticool in this pic. What are those foregrips borrowed from? I was thinking FAL but they're not quite right.
>>37576084Proprietary I think?
>>37570417That is some pre-Panama Ranger Battalion shit.
>>37577739I wish I had more of those guys in particular, I really dig it.
Not vintage but cool.
>>37578228Anything is fine, really. I prefer MP5SDs.
Russian FSKN with all western shit... because why not.
>>37578228What's with the rubber band?
>>37568727>>37568720Pics are shots from when UKSF stormed the Iranian Embassy in 1980.SF deployed after x1 hostage was executed & many days of negotiations.Good job...56 rooms cleared/task accomplished in 11 minutes.There are numerous books/films/accounts/documentaries/photos of ‘Op Nimrod’....The best known film,based on this event is ‘Who Dares Wins’ starring Lewis Collins (since deceased)
>>37568054Pretty sure this is Delta in that brief period where they dumped the grease guns but haven't received MP5s yet.
>>37582957Wish I had more of it, there's very little with the MPLs save for the 1972 Disco Danceoff at Munich.
only have this one saved
SEALs were still using suppressed MP5s in OIF
>>37571274this guys face...
>>37584469>Etna asked him where he was going, to which he replied he was "going hunting, hunting for humans."Holy shit.
>>37568018A operator with a uru
>>37585907>Sawed off shotgun>TigerstripeHot.
>>37582597Uh, no shit. Did you think this was obscure?
>>37580494I imagine it's so when he drops his mag he doesn't lose it
>>37573992I'd rather be a pre-MP5 operator, might be because of overexposure to them in vidya and movies but i like MP5s less than cold war folding stock smgs (ie:M12s, MPKs, grease guns, M50s, full-size uzis and swedish Ks).
>>37573992>Born just in time to be a P90 operator
>>37585907Italian commando frogman in 1973
>>37586098what optic is that?
>>37586466No idea to be honest.
Bump for you. Mines not old but I love it.
>>37568586I dig the tactical hose clamp attachment method.
>>37578709Socially awkward operator.
>>37585907>2005This is 100% LARPing
>>37586896Maybe it's the time it was colorized or posted ?
Does anyone have pics of people using the old mp5s with waffle mags ?
>>37570417Who are these guys? Looks like army patches. Maybe SF or Delta?
>>37586962>ITS AN HONOR TO BE HELD IN YOUR IRON GRIP BOSS!
>>37587165Army Rangers according to >>37577739
>>37568658>>37571274>>37572980>>37578715>>37578734>>37585514>>37586105/k/ as fuck
>>37586935Nah, looks a lot like airsoft, probably a mil-sim event or some shit
>>37568727This one too, the secret service guy's pose looks straight out of a action movie poster.
>>37590640>>37590659>>37590670>>37590681>>37590696>>37590707>>37590756that's all i got
>>37590978Thanks anon.>>37590696Feels kind of weird seeing anyone professional actually use an uzi.
>>37570417>>37571026Why did SEALs look so much cooler than Rangers and SF did at the same era.
>>37592743There's only like one training operation on some container ship where they're wearing that gear sadly.
>>37578772Night as well carry a 416 with all that weight.
>>37594270I think Euro police still get subguns for political/budget reasons. The entire US for example has came to the conclusion they're obsolete.
>>37568010> walking off the heli, aiming at the fucking sky
>>37594584Propably aiming at the bridge of the ship which is high up
Not an MP5, but rad.
>>37590978I love the tactical doggo
>>37595618>Pointman gets an SD and an absolutely massive fucking knoifGot a real solid snake here.
>>37568010what kind of shotgun is that?
>>37597289>zero trigger disciplineI guess they just wanted it minimize reaction time and gave a damn about potential ND's.
>>37597319> playing with empty propsits OK, they have no mags.
>>37568304Bunch of weak cucks who deserved to die.
>>37597357No mags but often experienced military guys will just fall into muscle memory regarding how they handle their weapon, so it implies they often just have their finger on the trigger. They could be just trying to look cool, of course.
>>37597298I like how they have three different models.>>37597390How in the fuck did that happen?
>>37595618Like most units with black tactical gear, they recently switched over to the "US army larp camo" aesthethic; and now only wear black uniforms at night ((because they were to hot during daytime according to some sources).
>>37598873they could use some light green or tan, even at night idk
>>37568010>You will never be point man operating with a pump shotgun and a fucking fire axe.
>>37599625I think grey would be better, it's the most similar to the original color and would provide concealment in urban environments unlike green or tan.
>>37600485Agreed, a uniform color distinct from the nation's military, but still effective in its intended environment. I always cringe when I see cops in fucking multicam.
>>37601780What makes cringe is that these cops are most of the times SWAT or similar units raiding buildings, if they were marshalls chasing a guy in the middle of nowhere it would make sense.
>>37602209Exactly, and it also shows the mentality of the men in uniform. Pic related is from the Boston bombing aftermath. They're chasing one guy with a pistol who's wounded, but they're dressed up like they're Rangers deploying to the middle east or something. I get the body armor, helmets and rifle, but why the fuck do they have night vision? Why the PEQ and FDE suppressor on the officer's carbine? They're not there to protect and serve, they're there to play soldier.>The police are meant to protect and serve the public. The military is supposed to destroy the enemies of the state. This is why the two must never be confused.
>>37598873What are these guns, AR10s ?
>>37602379I could understand supressors if they were raiding a but there is no reason to have a surpressor if you are just standing guard on the street.Also are the guys in the pic part of a special unit or are they just cops ?
>>37602644There's never not a good reason to have a suppressor my dude. No reason Officer Bubba shouldn't have one. IR markers are another story.
>>37591354>>37590696I agree, I don't like how ghetto niggers are appropriating white gun culture. The MAC10 and Uzi are symbols of my people.
>>37568304Second guy from the left...Is he dual wield in an MP5K and an HK53???>War pigs intensifies
>>37592743>>37587165>>37577739They're wearing 82nd abn patches. This pic was most likely taken in the era before SSI-FWTS (combat patch) was a thing, so if i were a betting man, i'd say these guys were division LRRP.
>>37583687does this count? again, Delta
>>37575503Walt Disney says: "EEEEEEEELIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNN!!!"
Simpler times when a smaller caliber sufficed
>>37608802That makes no sense.
>>37568010Fat, Lazy Gamer is too much of a snowflake to use a search engine
>>37586105I’ve always wondered if that pistol drop panel was a DIY.
>>37608826A simpler time when body armor was far less common and thus pistol rounds were adequate for most CQB situations.
>>37605024>>37606530could someone tell me why some military men used beanie even when it seems to be in a not cold climate?
>>37610475Probably just for the meme. Some of them can be rolled up balaclavas, don't think either of those are though.
>>37610475iirc it's something about wool absorbing your sweat or whateveralso covering your head prevents all kinds of nasty shit from getting in your hair as an added bonus
>>37586105Those shoes tho
>>37610512>>37610725cool, thanks for answering
>>37588078>not posting the edit
>>37590707Weird thread protector
>>37612082Not a BFA or something?
>>37568315*desire to operate intensifies*
>>37598541tons of good reaction pics
>>37602209those guys look fine thoughall grey, no NVGs, POLICE is obvious as fuck and easily visible
>>37612308That’s what I thought at first but there’s a hole at least .38 in dia, a BFA shouldn’t have a hole that large in the end. I thought maybe a weird comp too but there doesn’t seem to be any porting in the top.
>>37585999Stop pissing on him. I didn't know.
>>37587019Did they really train them to hip fire?
>>37612082Might be a muzzle brake.
