The following weapons were used in the series The Brink:

Assault Rifles


AK-47s are seen in the hands of Pakistani military personnel throughout the season, which is incorrect since they are armed with license-made G3A3 as their standard rifle. If the soldiers are required to use AK-type rifles, the Pakistani Army issues the Chinese Norinco Type 56 instead of the genuine AK-47. A few are seen with Dotari tribesmen and "Taliban" militants in the middle of "Sticky Wicket".

A few pro-Unity Party demonstrators are firing AKMs in protest marches throughout "Pilot". One Pakistani soldier is seen guarding the outskirts of a Pakistani Army prison at the start of "Half-Cocked". The AKM is a non-standard weapon in the Pakistani military like the AK-47. Some of the Dotari tribesmen in "Tweet, Tweet, Tweet" and in "Sicky Wicket" use AKMs. Pakistani soldiers and "Taliban" militants at the end of "Sticky Wicket" are armed with AKMs. Eritrean guerrilla fighters are armed with AKMs at the end of "There Will Be Consequences".

Zastava M70B1

Zastava M70B1s are seen with Pakistani tribesmen near the end of "I'll Never Be Batman". The Zastava is an unlikely choice for Pakistani tribesmen as they are capable for producing their own AK rifles, but the M70B1 is possibly used as a replacement for AK rifles made in the Khyber Pass. Lieutenant Commander Zeke "Z-Pak" Tilson (Pablo Schreiber) and Lieutenant Glenn "Jammer" Taylor (Eric Ladin) take them from the disarmed tribesmen at the start of "Swim, Shmuley, Swim".
