Braddock: Missing in Action III (1988)

The following weapons were used in the film Braddock: Missing in Action III:



Heckler & Koch G3A4 with under-barrel 6 shot launcher

Colonel James Braddock (Chuck Norris) carries as his main weapon of the movie a Heckler & Koch G3A4 with a custom under-barrel 6-shot launcher. The weapon also has an auto-telescoping bayonet. The under-barrel launcher is similar to the one used by Poncho in Predator.

Colonel James Braddock (Chuck Norris) opens fire with the G3A4. Notice from the muzzle flare how the rifle barrel doesn't actually seem to be attached to the front of the weapon. This would be a good way for Braddock to catch a ricochet in the face. Also notice how the bore diameter of the grenade launcher (just above Norris' left hand) is far too small to fire any grenades.
