The following weapons were used in the second season of the television series Ultimate Force:

Contents


Handguns

SIG-Sauer P226

The SIG-Sauer P226 is the preferred sidearm of Red Troop and is used throughout the series. It is frequently seen holstered whenever the team are wearing their counter terrorist gear, but is normally only used for undercover work.

SIG-Sauer P226 - 9x19mm
Cpl. Jamie Dow (Jamie Draven) is armed with a P226 when he first boards the boat in "Communication" (Episode 2.1). This is in fact a continuity error, as after this point the gun changes to a P225.
Caroline is given a SIG-Sauer P226 by Jem in "Communication" (Episode 2.1).
Cpt. Caroline Walshe (Alex Reid) holds the P226 in "Communication" (Episode 2.1).
Cpl. Ricky Mann (Danny Sapani) fires his P226 in "Mad Dogs" (Episode 2.2).
SSgt. Henry 'Henno' Garvie (Ross Kemp) chambers his P226 in "Wannabes" (Episode 2.3)
Jamie uses a P226 fitted with a suppressor to snatch a cult member in "What in the Name of God" (Episode 2.5).
Sgt. Pete Twamley (Tony Curran) holds his P226 in "What in the Name of God" (Episode 2.5).
Cpl. Louis Hoffman (Christopher Fox) aims his P226 from the rear foot-well of a jeep whilst abducting Mick Mo in "Dead is Forever" (Episode 2.6).

SIG-Sauer P225

Jamie (Jamie Draven) can be seen using SIG-Sauer P225 as his sidearm in several episodes, even though this pistol is a dated design with a smaller magazine capacity than the P226s and P228s which Red Troop usually uses on the show. The use of this pistol in "Communication" (Episode 2.1) is rife with continuity errors. Firstly, Jamie can be seen holding the pistol below decks on the boat when earlier he was using a larger P226 whilst climbing aboard. Secondly, Henno (Ross Kemp) draws a P225 from his holster and clears it at the end of the episode, despite the fact that he was previously using the similar, but more modern, P228.

SIG-Sauer P225 - 9x19mm
Jamie uses a P225 whilst moving around the lower deck of the ship.
Henno unloads a P225 at the end of the episode. This can be differentiated from the P228 he was using early by the horned trigger guard.
Jamie again uses a P225 in "Wannabes" (Episode 2.3) whilst threatening Suzi Brown (Flora Montgomery)

SIG-Sauer P228

In some episodes, the smaller SIG-Sauer P228 are used by Red Troop.

SIG-Sauer P228 - 9x19mm
Henno (Ross Kemp) can be seen with a P228 whilst hiding below decks in "Communication" (Episode 2.1). In a continuity error, this pistol later changes to a P225.
SSgt. Henry 'Henno' Garvie (Ross Kemp) fires his P228 in "Mad Dogs" (Episode 2.2).
Henno and Jamie (Jamie Draven) can both be seen using P228s at the shooting range in "Mad Dogs" (Episode 2.2). Ricky (Danny Sapani) is also using a pistol at the range, however he is armed with a P226, as referenced by its longer barrel and horned trigger guard.
Cpl. Jamie Dow (Jamie Draven) fires his P228 in "Mad Dogs" (Episode 2.2).

Beretta 92

In "Dead is Forever" (Episode 2.6) one of the rebels, uses what appears to be an original Beretta 92 during a mock execution and a ransom video. This particular gun features plain grip panels, and a stepped slide (it narrows in thickness just ahead of the chamber) indicating that it is one of the first 1000 or so pistols made before the design was changed to the familiar profile.

Beretta 92, early model with unbranded grip panels and stepped slide - 9x19mm
The lack of safety on the right side of the frame indicates that this is an original Beretta 92. Also visible in this shot is the "step" on the side of the slide where it narrows just past the chamber.
During the ransom video it is just possible to see frame mounted safety, as well as the butt mounted magazine release confirming this is a Beretta 92, as opposed to a very early Taurus PT92.

Beretta 92FS

In "Dead is Forever" (Episode 2.6) one of the rebels can briefly be seen with a Beretta 92FS. This is not the Beretta 92 seen being used at other points in the episode, as noted by the finger step on the trigger guard.

CZ 75B

One of the rebels in "Dead is Forever" uses a CZ 75B during a mock execution. The weapon misfires, prompting the user to say "Damn these cheep Czechoslovakian weapons."

CZ 75B - 9x19mm
The rebel aims at blindfolded Dempsey (Miles Anderson) with his CZ 75B.

Heckler & Koch USP

Heckler & Koch USP pistols are seen in some episodes, usually in the hands of the antagonists.

Heckler & Koch USP - 9x19mm
USPs feature prominently in "Communication" (Episode 2.1) where they are used by the French special forces. In this picture, the leader of the French soldiers, LeMaison (François Guétary), re-holsters his USP after shooting the terrorist leader.
Lacompte (Pascal Langdale) aiming his USP as the French seize the ship.
LeMaison aiming his USP at the innocent captain as he forces him to continue to England.
UF 201 58.jpg
Mick Mo (Dorian Healy) uses a USP as he abducts Dempsey (Miles Anderson) and Nicky Strong (Emily Joyce) in "Dead is Forever" (Episode 2.6).
Louis (Christopher Fox) checks his USP is loaded as they approach a checkpoint. This is a continuity error, as he was previously seen with a SIG-Sauer P226, although it is possible this is the weapon he confiscated from Mick Mo, although why he would be using it instead of his own pistol is unclear.

Smith & Wesson Model 60

Several of the terrorists on the boat in "Communication" (Episode 2.1) can be seen using Smith & Wesson Model 60 snub nose revolvers.

Smith & Wesson Model 686

The cult leader Omega (Conor Mullen) in "What in the Name of God" (Episode 2.5) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 686 with a 4" barrel.

Smith & Wesson Model 686, 4" Barrel - .357 Magnum

Walther P99

A Walther P99 can briefly be seen in "The List" (Episode 2.4) as the pistol being used by the sleeper assassin Levi (Simon Gregor).

Walther P99 - 9x19mm
The P99 can be seen laying on the seat, along with his target instructions. From the proprietary accessory rail visible in this shot, along with the fact that this episode was shot in 2003, this pistol is an original pre-2004 model as opposed to the "Quick Action".

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

The standard-issue weapons for the SAS unit Red Troop in the TV show are Heckler & Koch MP5A3 submachine guns, which are always seen with Surefire fore ends and tactical flashlights as well as the SEF-style lower receiver. These weapons are typically used in Red Troop's domestic hostage rescue missions. The other SAS unit, Blue Troop, also use identical weapons, as do many Metropolitan Police SO19 (now CO19) officers throughout the show.

Heckler & Koch MP5KA1

Heckler & Koch MP5KA1 submachine guns are used by a number of the French special forces soldiers in "Communication" (Episode 2.1). The MP5KA1 is a version of the original MP5K designed for concealed carry (it lacks the H&K dioptre sights in order to avoid getting snagged on clothing when being drawn quickly from beneath a jacket).

Henno (Ross Kemp) surveys the damage after the fire-fight. An MP5KA1 can be seen at his feet in the hands of a dead soldier.

Heckler & Koch MP5SD3

Red Troop also makes use of the suppressed Heckler & Koch MP5SD3 in "What in the Name of God" (Episode 2.5) when Red Troop invades the stronghold of a Christian cult terrorist group to capture their leader.

IMI Mini Uzi

The IMI Mini Uzi machine pistol appears in several episodes being used by the bad guys..

Mini Uzi - 9x19mm
One of the French soldiers in "Communication" (Episode 2.1) gets shot in the head whilst aiming his Mini Uzi. Note the device attached to the butt stock of the weapon which creates the blood splatter from the bullet hit, which is visible as he falls to the side.
Another French soldier carries a Mini Uzi with a laser sight clamped under the barrel.

PPSh-41

A PPSh-41 can be seen briefly in the hands of one of the Georgian soldiers in Episode 2.6, "Dead is Forever".

Assault Rifles

AKM

AKMs are a common weapon used by terrorists on the show.

AKM - 7.62x39mm
Several AKMs are used by the cult members in "What in the Name of God" (Episode 2.5). This particular rifle is fitted with a telescopic sight.
AKMs are one of the weapons used by the rebels in "Death is Forever" (Episode 2.6).
SPOILER: Henno (Ross Kemp) uses an AKM, taken from the dead body of the rebel pictured above, when he kills Capt. Ian Macalwain (Richard Armitage).

AKS-74U

One of the French special forces soldiers can be briefly seen with an AKS-74U in "Communication" (Episode 2.1).

AKS-74U - 5.45x39mm
One of the soldiers can be seen picking up the rifle from an armoury when the dead body of one of the soldiers is discovered. It is possible that this weapon was supposed to belong to the terrorists who were previously in control of the ship, as all other weapons used by the French soldiers are "Western".

Colt AR-15 Sporter-1

Colt AR-15 Sporter-1s are seen frequently on the show in the hands of Red troop as a stand in for M16s. They can be recognised as Sporter-1s by their screw type pivot rather than push pin pivot, which is visible in some shots. The rifle is particular prevalent in "Dead is Forever" (Episode 2.6) where it is the source of continuity errors where Henno (Ross Kemp) and Jamie (Jamie Draven) switch between using SP1s and M16A2s throughout the episode.

Colt AR-15 Sporter-1 (SP1) - 5.56x45mm
Henno (Ross Kemp) looking through the British CWS night sight of his SP1, also fitted with a Cobray CM203. Although it looks like he has the lens cap in place so wouldn't be able to see anything, the lens cap actually has a whole in the centre which restricts the light the sight lets in to allow it to function in daylight.
Jamie's SP1 has quadrant sights fitted to the carry handle. Also visible in the bottom right of this shot is the large screw headed pivot pin which is indicative of the Colt Sporter-1 rifles.
UF 206 60.jpg
Henno attempts to clear a jam by cycling the charging handle, but you can see that the weapon jams again. This weapon is apparently in need of some serious cleaning.
Jamie firing his SP1.

Colt CAR-15

CAR-15s are a common weapon used by Red troop, and can be seen used by multiple characters in "Dead is Forever" (Episode 2.6). These CAR-15s are most likely either mock-ups or commercial copies, as the flash hiders are too long for E1 rifles, but lack the grenade ring found on later E2 rifles.

Commercial CAR-15 semiautomatic Rifle - 5.56x45mm.
Caroline (Alex Reid) carries a CAR-15 while operating as Red Troop's radio operator in "Dead is Forever" (Episode 2.6). During night scenes, it is fitted with some variety of image intensifier on the carry handle.

Colt M16A1

Some of the cult members in "What in the Name of God" (Episode 2.5) use unmodified M16A1s.

Colt M16A1 (with M16A2 hand guards)

Red troop make use of M16A1s fitted with A2 type handguards on several occasions for oversees missions where more range is required.

Sniper Rifles

Accuracy International Arctic Warfare

Whenever Red Troop requires sniper support, the snipers are typically armed with Accuracy International Arctic Warfare rifles in 7.62x51mm NATO, with the majority of the main characters using one at one point or another. This rifle was used by the British army, under the designation of L118A1.

L7 GPMG

Being the standard machine gun of the British Army, the L7 GPMG is used on multiple occasions by the SAS on the show. It is also occasionally used by terrorists on the show.

British L7A2 GPMG - 7.62x51mm
A GPMG can briefly be seen in the background mounted an a Land Rover in "Communication" (Episode 2.1).
The cult in "What in the Name of God" (Episode 2.5) have a tripod mounted GPMG for perimeter defence. It is destroyed with a LAW before it can be used however.

RPD

An RPD can briefly be seen in the hands of a Georgian soldier in "Dead is Forever" (Episode 2.6).

RPD Light Machine Gun - 7.62x39mm
The front waving soldier is armed with an RPD.

Shotguns

Remington 870 Police Folder

Some of the Metropolitan Police SO19 (now CO19) officers that appear at the end of "Communication" (Episode 2.1) carry what appears to be Remington 870 Police Folders with extended magazine tubes.

Remington 870 Police Folder with extended magazine tube - 12 gauge
The officers on the far right and far left appear to be armed with 870s. Although they are never clearly shown, they are pump action shotguns with full length magazine tubes and top folding stocks, and it would make sense that the armourers from the show would use existing guns from their inventory.

Heavy Weapons

Cobray CM203

Red Troop's M16s and CAR-15s are often fitted with Cobray CM203 37mm flare launchers to stand in for 40mm M203 grenade launchers.

M16A1 with Cobray CM203 launcher - 37mm
