White House Down is a 2013 action film directed by Roland Emmerich and stars Channing Tatum as John Cale, a Capitol Police Officer and failed Secret Service applicant who finds himself trapped after heavily armed mercenaries seize the White House. He then proceeds to find President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx) and the two try to find a way to thwart the terrorists. The film was released in the U.S. on June 28, 2013, a mere three months following the release of the similarly-themed Olympus Has Fallen.


The following weapons were used in the film White House Down:

Handguns

John Cale (Channing Tatum) uses a Glock 19 pistol as his sidearm while serving as the bodyguard of Speaker of the House Eli Raphaelson (Richard Jenkins).

Beretta 92FS

Special Agent Martin Walker (James Woods) uses a Beretta 92FS as his main weapon throughout the film, despite the official sidearm of the Secret Service being the SIG-Sauer P229. A few of the Secret Service Uniformed Division officers are also armed with Berettas, which the mercenaries use to seize control of the White House.

Springfield Armory XD-45 Tactical

Cale uses a Springfield Armory XD-45 Tactical taken from Vadim (Anatoly Zinoviev) for much of the movie. He later gives it to President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx) to protect himself while they flee through the White House catacombs.

SIG-Sauer P250 Compact

The SIG-Sauer P250 Compact appears to be the pistol used by Emil Stenz (Jason Clarke) and some of his henchmen during the initial takeover of the White House. John Cale (Channing Tatum) retrieves a SIG-Sauer P250 Compact with a threaded barrel from a fallen Secret Service agent (again, a weapon not used by the real USSS). He uses the P250 until he is able to acquire a Brügger & Thomet APC9 submachine gun.

Submachine Guns

Brügger & Thomet APC9

The Brügger & Thomet APC9 is used by several of the mercenaries who seize the White House, including Stenz and Killick (Kevin Rankin). The submachine gun seen is fitted with a tan upper receiver, an EOTech XPS2 sight, tactical light and suppressor. Cale uses one after seizing it from Ritter (Andreas Apergis) early in the film.

A couple of Heckler & Koch MP5SD submachine guns can be seen in the White House armory. Although the mercenaries are seen grabbing the MP5SDs, in a continuity error they turn into MP5A3s with suppressors when they are fired.

Other

M26 Hand Grenade

President Sawyer (Jamie Foxx) uses what appears to be an M26 hand grenade as a distraction when he is confronted by Walker and Stenz at the White House pool. Grenades are later used during a fight between Stenz and Cale (Channing Tatum).

FGM-148 Javelin

The mercenaries use a FGM-148 Javelin to fend off attacking helicopters. While the Javelin is designed as an anti-tank weapon, it uses an IR (heat-seeking) guidance system like those used on air-to-air missiles, allowing it to easily engage helicopters. The launcher in the film is erroneously depicted as a standard hard-launch missile launcher, instead of a soft-launch (where the missile is pneumatically ejected a safe distance and then ignites its motor).

Stenz attempts to fire the Javelin as Cale tackles him.

RPG-7

A mercenary fires an RPG-7 at an advancing M1 Abrams during a chase between the mercenaries and Cale as he and the President attempt to flee using the Presidential Limousine. In reality, an RPG-7 with a PG-7VM rocket will do next to nothing to an M1 Abrams tank, especially from the front. Furthermore, the RPG-7 is notoriously inaccurate at any distance beyond nearly point-blank range, making the odds of scoring an effective hit even more improbable.

Custom RPG-7 (mockup)

While being chased in the Presidential limousine, President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx) takes out a custom rocket launcher which resembles an Airtronic RPG-7. This particular launcher appears to be actually an RPG-7D paratrooper model fitted with an M4-style stock and RIS rails. The type used is distinguishable from the standard RPG-7 by its takedown feature and the safety latch extension that is visible under the launch tube to prevent the sear from functioning when the launcher is in two pieces. Two separate rocket types can be seen being used with this weapon; the PG-7VM and the larger PG-7VL, but this launcher is fitted with a chromed warhead. The chrome is most likely for pure design and and to attract the audience, as chromed warheads have no beneficial value and too costly to be standard issue.

President Sawyer aims the launcher. The normal RPG-7 weighs 17.3 kg (37.7 lb) loaded, making it extremely difficult to aim it outside a car window during a high-speed car chase, further implying that this is a prop.

White House Armory

The armory at the White House stores several pistols, rifles, and submachine guns.
