Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5K

The main weapon of FBI Special Agent Janet Mayes (Jennifer Garner) is the Heckler & Koch MP5K. She uses it to dispatch several terrorists who kidnapped Adam Leavitt (Jason Bateman) during the apartment shootout. The MP5K is also carried by the Prince's bodyguards, as well as Colonel Faris Al-Ghazi (Ashraf Barhom) when he escorts the FBI team from the airport. Saudi Special Security Forces also carry this gun during their assault on the terrorist hideout. This is a standard MP5K fitted with a PDW stock.

Heckler & Koch HK91A2 rifles are the main weapons of FBI Special Agents Ronald Fleury (Jamie Foxx) and Grant Sykes (Chris Cooper). The HK91s are converted to resemble the Heckler & Koch G3SG/1 and is therefore fitted with a folding bipod, and converted to full-auto. Fleury uses it mainly during the freeway attack.
