Work In Progress
The following weapons were used in the OVA Hellsing Ultimate:
Hellsing Arms .454 Casull
Alucard's signature weapon is the Hellsing Arms .454 Casull (unofficially known as the "Joshua"). This weapon is the first custom handgun made by Hellsing, and was specifically designed by Walter. It's essentially a very big semiautomatic pistol, with a length of 39cm. It's chambered for the mighty .454 Casull round, which finds use primarily in hunting large game, such as deer and bears. Of course, these bullets are special, being made out of silver obtained from melted holy relics, with an exploding property as well, making for a rather devastating cartridge against the legions of the night. The Casull is believed to be based upon the Colt 1911 (or its variants like the longslide), however it also bears a resemblance to early model Colt pistols. In some close ups, one may note that the hammer is never fully cocked, indicative of either a double action or fast-action mechanism similar to the Daewoo DP51. The lengthy barrel and slide gives this gun incredible accuracy, and the weight at the front of the gun makes the massive round significantly more controllable. Something this extreme suits Alucard perfectly.
In true anime fashion, despite the Casull only holding around 6-7 rounds in its magazine; Alucard never actually reloads the gun until he desires to. For example, during his fight against the ghouls in Cheddar village, he fires 18 rounds without reloading and even fires multiple shots with just one trigger pull. Another is during the fight against Luke Valentine where he fires an excess of 44 rounds without any implications that he is reloading. This has led to Kouto Hirano, the author, to joke that Alucard's weapons are actually "Schrodinger's guns", where the gun is fully loaded so long as the shooter thinks it is.
Trivia: During the flashbacks to World War II (specifically 1945) seen in much of the OVA's promotional material, Alucard is seen using this same weapon. This is anachronistic, as the .454 Casull round was developed in 1957.
Alucard's second handgun is the Jackal, which was also made especially for him. The Jackal was made by Walter after Alucard's first encounter with Anderson - in fact, it likely was specifically designed with him in mind, considering the phrase "'Jesus Christ is in Heaven Now'", a variation on a similar statement on Anderson's equipment, is engraved on the side. The Jackal has an overall length of 39cm (the same length as the Casull), is made from pure silver, and weighs 16kg. The slide covers the entire top frame, and there are thus no creases or lines on the top part of the gun, making room for the engraving. Obviously, no human could possibly use this gun without being blown away by it. The breech also faces the left, instead of the right, so it's more of a sister gun to the .454, though it's magazines can hold about the same amount of bullets that the Casull is capable of. The bullets are different as well, being a bigger 13mm, with blessed Macedonian silver casing, a reinforced core for armor penetration, a mercury explosive and each bullet being baptized. Compared to the Casull, the Jackal is distinctly lacking in terms of aesthetic features, and is devoid of any contours on the side or frame save for the grip. This suggests that Walter designed the weapon immediately after Alucard's encounter with Anderson and did not have time to improve its appearance. Much like the Casull pistol, the Jackal, despite only having a 6-round magazine, never needs to reload unless Alucard desires to.
This gun is of fantastic proportions. No 13mm round for a pistol was ever produced due to its size. A .50 alone would equal 12.7mm, meaning each bullet must be manufactured by Hellsing alone. It's curious as to how this weapon can weigh 16kg when a full size 7.62X51mm machine gun only weighs 11kg, the weight is probably necessary to control the 13mm rounds, though with a gun this heavy you could probably fire a .50cal BMG round and still have the same desired effect.
A SIG-Sauer P226 is seen in the hands of Seras during her time as a police officer. Integra also uses a P226 with a nickel finish as her sidearm as choice, stating that it is loaded with silver Heavy Explosive rounds. She later gives her handgun to Sir Penwood, a British navy commander and family friend, after his decision to hold his post in a hopeless effort to restore communications throughout the war, rather than evacuating. She however, uses it during the final episode, which implies that Integra has a spare P226.
Richard Hellsing uses an M1911A1 in a flashback.
A Browning Hi-Power was seen as the sidearm of a British officer in episode 5. Because of the black grips, it can be assumed it's a British L9A1.
Mauser C96 Carbine
Two Mauser C96 pistols are used by "The Captain". The normal pistol barrels have been replaced with meter-long carbine barrels, matching his tall stature.
A Beretta 92FS is seen in the hands of a round table council member. It is also seen in the hands of several ghouls in the Badrick hospital during episode 1.
Webley Mk VI
A Webley Mk VI revolver is used by round table council president Sir Hugh Irons in the OVA. He later gives his Webley pistol to Integra Hellsing after commanding her to execute her now undead soldiers as punishment for her ill-preparedness that led to the total massacre of her forces.
Sir Integra later uses a Webley pistol in the final episode, presumably the same one given to her by Sir Irons, after her P226 handgun ran out of ammo. She uses it in the final duel with the Major.
Single Action Army
Pip's sidearm of choice is a Single Action Army.
Pip uses a full-sized Glock pistol, most likely a Glock 17, with a suppressor in the OVA to assassinate the corrupt police officials working with Millennium.
Heinkel Wolfe uses two silver handguns with wooden grips as her main weapons. They do not bear any close resemblance to any particular gun, indicating that they were custom-made by Isacriot for her. They do however seem to be based on a hybrid of the Browning BDA and several 1911-based pistols or could be based on the Coonan Arms .357 Magnum.
In the OVA 10 the Major uses a chrome plated Luger P08 with black grips (which is handed by an automatic machine) in an attempt to execute a disobedient officer, who is later killed by his mates due to the Major's terrible accuracy, where he misses all 8 shots at close range.
During some flashbacks we can see the Major in 1945 with a Tokarev TT-33 being pointed to his head. It's used by a Russian officer who wounds the major in the streets of Berlin after his squad found him during the Soviet takeover of Berlin.There are also Red Army soldiers firing their TT's while celebrating their victory at the Brandenburg Gate. Strangely, the TT-33s have squared trigger guards.
The priests of Iscariot each use two handguns with a black finish. They are never given a good close-up and so it is hard to distinguish what type of handgun they are using. From the boxy frame and slide, however, one can assume that they are Glocks.
In OVA 5, a nazi officer is seen holding a Walther P38 on Vice Admiral Sir Penwood. In the last Ova the Major pulls out a Walther P38 while dueling with Integra. Just like the MP40, it appears to be upgraded,as it fires aproximately 13 rounds without reloading while an ordinary P38 would only hold 8 rounds.
Customized FN P90s
Yan Valentine wields a pair of heavily modified FN P90s. Both have part of the stock and thumb hole grip removed, with a more conventional pistol grip placed instead. Silencers has been added, along with an underbarrel laser sights. Of course, his eye sigil also adorns the side of the weapon. Both weapons also use sniper scopes instead of the P90's built-in reflex sight in the OVA, which is a very odd choice of optics for a submachine gun.
It is also an odd bit that Yan's P90s do not act like they are surppressed, as noted by the muzzle flash and the loud report of his weapons while firing.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
Both Hellsing members and London police officers are seen with H&K MP5A3s.
Heckler & Koch MP5K PDW
Yan Valentine's ghouls are all armed with H&K MP5K PDWs equipped with PVS-14 night vision scopes, suppressors, and jungle-style magazines although the ghouls using riot shields do not have the scope mount. This same setup was also seen in the hands of a few police officers.
Much like Yan's P90s, the suppressors mounted on the MP5s do not seem to have any effect on the weapon.
The Beretta PM12S was seen in OVA. It is possible that these are Taurus PM-12s (a licensed copy of the Beretta PM12S made in Brazil) since these are used by a Brazilian police SWAT team.
A Micro Uzi was see seen in the hands of a vampire teen in the OVA.
A police officer can be seen wielding an Uzi during the first episode of the OVA.
The Millennium Organization's army of Nazi vampires are largely equipped with MP40s.They appear to be modernized,as they have a higher rate of fire and extended mags(they fire more than 32 rounds without reloading).
In the Major's flashbacks, we can also see Red Army soldiers using PPSh-41's.
A M1928 Thompson can be seen in Alucard's dream sequence at the beginning of the 5th OVA. The entire dream revolves around films based on Frederick Forsythe novels. The Thompson is seen during a reference to The Fourth Protocol.
Seras's Rifle (Hellsing Anti-Midians 13.7mm)
This unnamed rifle was used by Seras before she was given the Hallconnen. She also used it with a drum magazine later on in the TV series and OVA. This weapon is clearly manufactured by the Hellsing organization for anti-vampire combat, though it is uncertain who was intended to wield it before Seras joined. The stock engraving reads "Anti-Midians" and gives the caliber of the round as a massive 13.7mm.
Cut-Down M1 Garands
Luke Valentine's weapon of choice is a pair of sawn-off M1 Garand rifles. In the television series, both the stock and barrel/fore-end have been cut down, effectively turning these rifles into high-caliber pistols. In the OVA, only the barrel and fore-end have been cut, and the stock has been left intact.
Colt Model 733
Colt Model 733s are carried by Hellsing members in the OVA.
Several M16A2 rifles are used by Brazilian solders/officers in an (unsuccessful) attempt to kill Anderson.
Mosin Nagant M38 Carbine
Three Red Army soldiers are beating the Major in WW2 with Mosin Nagant rifles. The barrel lengths are suggesting M38's.
Traitorous British soldiers in the OVA are seen wielding L85A1 service rifles. Another is seen in the hands of a member of the Wild Geese during Zorin's assault.
Norinco Type 84S
Two members of the Wild Geese in the OVA are armed with Norinco Type 84S rifles.
Most of the Wild Geese in the OVA are armed with AK-74 rifles. It is also the preferred weapon of Pip Bernadotte, the captain of the Wild Geese mercenaries.
Several members of the Wild Geese use AKS-74U rifles while working for the Hellsing Organization.
Several of the Nazi vampires in the OVA are armed with Sturmgewehr 44s.
The Nazi vampires are seen with Kar 98ks.
Papal Knights' Rifles (Modified PTRS-41's)
The Papal Knights of the Vatican's 9th airborne crusade use custom, long-barreled heavy rifles which are specifically designed to kill vampires, as their main weapons. They strongly reassemble PTRS-41 AT rifles. However, they're magazine fed, unlike the original rifle, and have different muzzle brakes. The main attachments are large bayonets and halberds.
- TRIVIA:The rifles curiously have a very weak firing sound despite their large caliber, somewhat resembling that of muskets.
Rip Van Winkle's Magic Flintlock Musket (Jezail Musket)
Obersturmführer Rip Van Winkle uses a Jezail musket which fires magic bullets. The magic bullets are capable of fully penetrating a target, changing trajectory during the flight and repeatedly hitting all the targets, expiring only after all of the targets are neutralized. Because of her magic musket, she sees herself like Kaspar from Carl Maria von Weber's Der Freischütz, and is seen singing part of the opera while shooting down a group of jets attempting to attack the aircraft carrier she has highjacked.
Heckler & Koch PSG-1
A H&K PSG-1 is used by a Brazilian police sniper team.
Day of the Jackal Sniper Rifle
In OVA 9 Heinkel takes an SVD Dragunov from one of his comrades to take revenge for the death of Yumie. It is seen with medical bandage round the wooden handguard and with a cross hanged by the iron sights.
Seras Victoria and several Millenium soldiers are seen with MG42s during OVA 10.
Seras Victoria gets this fictional cannon later in the series. This is the weapon that Walter gives Seras in episode 5, "Brotherhood" and the OVA shows the same scene as well, in the 2nd episode. This weapon's name is rendered as "Hallconnen" but actually pronounced "Harkonnen" and is a reference to the primary antagonists of the novel Dune, House Harkonnen (the spelling discrepancy is the result of trying to fit the word into the Japanese syllabic writing system). The cannon is almost hilariously oversized, but Seras soon handles it like a normal rifle because of her strength as a vampire. Walter says that it uses depleted uranium shells, and high explosive rounds. The Harkonnen fires 30mm cannon shells.
This is effectively an artillery piece scaled down to so a person can hold it like a rifle, which Seras does from time to time. It operates using a traditional breech-action system.
Manville Projectile Launcher
Mk 47 Mod 0 Grenade Launcher
The Mk 47 Mod 0 Grenade Launcher is used by the Wild Geese to defend Hellsing manor against Millennium's forces with devastating effect.
Millennium's army of Nazi vampires in the OVA makes liberal use of a multitude of Panzerfaust launchers.
Several Nazi vampires carry Panzerschrecks during the attack on London.
A CIWS Phalanx on the deck of the captured British aircraft carrier is used against Alucard's Blackbird in the OVA.
The Harkonnen II is a fictional weapons system consisting of a pair 30mm automatic cannons coupled with an incredibly large ammunition supply. Seras uses these weapons to barrage Zorin's zeppelin with an overwhelming display of firepower. The ammunition containers are detachable, and Seras is seen using Harkonnen II without them, though she quickly runs out of ammo.Trivia:they're both belt and magaszine fed.When they're first seen,they're belt fed.In OVA 10,however she loads them with mags.They also appear to be locked breech recoil operated,as the barrel moves when it fires and it has no gas tube.
Described as a "Wide area saturation, high explosive incendiary grenade launcher", the Vladimir is a set of fictional muzzle-fired grenades that are part of the Harkonnen II weapon system. Seras uses these to deliver the final blow to Zorin's zeppelin.
When Seras Victoria was ordered by Integra Hellsing to kill the Major behind a wall of highly resistant bulletproof glass that even the Harkonnen could not breach with multiple shots; she resorts to tearing out one of the Deux Ex Machina's 88mm flak guns, which succeeds in one shot.
Wall of Guns
Seen in the first episode of the OVA. It consists of
- a Sig P226
- an AK-74
- an M16 with the three-pronged compensator [drawn upside down]
- an M1911
- an M16 with the birdcage compensator
- a Colt Python
- Franchi LM57
- Sten MkII
- Lee-Enfield No4 (With bayonet attached)
Near the end of the wall of guns several muzzle-loading muskets, one with a bayonet attached, can be seen.
And all these were pointed at Alucard, but were still not enough firepower to take down one of the most powerful vampires in existence.
