Hyena Road is a 2015 war drama written by, directed and starring Paul Gross (Passchendaele). Gross stars as Pete Mitchell, a Canadian military intelligence officer who recruits a team of snipers led by Ryan Sanders (Rossif Sutherland) in an effort to track down a mysterious Afghan fighter known as the Ghost. The film blends real footage shot by Gross in Afghanistan with action footage filmed in Canada and in Jordan.

The following weapons were used in the film Hyena Road:


Rifles / Carbines

McMillan TAC-50

Ryan Sanders (Rossif Sutherland) and Travis (Allan Hawco) use suppressed McMillan TAC-50 sniper rifles during their missions. The TAC-50, known as the C15 in Canadian service, is famous for having made one of the longest kill-shots in history at 2,430 meters (2,657 yd/1.509 miles) while being used in Afghanistan in 2002.

PGW Coyote

Hickey (David Richmond-Peck) uses a suppressed PGW Coyote when engaging some suspected booby traps early in the film. It is standing in for the PGW C14 Timberwolf, the Coyote is only used as a 7.62 NATO training rifle for the .338 Timberwolf and is not actually used in frontline combat. The C14 Timberwolf replaced the C3A1 formerly in use with the Canadian Armed Forces. The weapon used in this movie has a desert camouflage scheme. At 7:41 during the IED scene, Pete (Paul Gross) orders Hickey (David Richmond-Peck) "Hickey get the Coyote..."
