Pandemic (感染列島; Kansen rettô) is a 2009 Japanese Science-Fiction drama. The "videotape" look of the film is intentional as Takahisa Zeze shot the film completely with standard definition digital camcorders.
The following weapons were used in the film Pandemic:
Howa Type 89
Several JSDF soldiers can be seen armed with the Howa Type 89 rifle.
Howa Type 89 with integral bipod - 5.56x45mm. Currently in use by the Modern Japanese military.
A young Filipino boy opens fire with the Colt XM177.
Colt Model 609 aka U.S. Army's XM177E1- 5.56x45mm. This Carbine utilized the partial magazine fence, the tear drop forward assist, but kept the 10" barrel and Flash hider/Suppressor that did not have a grenade ring (a later feature on the E2 model).
