Best Defense is a 1984 comedy starring Dudley Moore as an engineer involved in the design of a targeting system for an advanced US military tank and whose decisions affect the actual use of the vehicle in battle seen two years later. Eddie Murphy co-stars as the US tank commander who tries to overcome the system's failings while in combat. The film is somewhat notable for depicting an Iraqi invasion of Kuwait seven years prior to the actual Gulf War.
The following weapons were used in the film Best Defense:
M16A1 rifles fitted with 30 round "curved" magazines are the rifles carried by Kuwaiti troops. Lt. T.M Landry (Eddie Murphy) uses an M16A1 after his Browning M2 malfunctions. Government agents also are armed with the rifle.
