Starship Troopers 3: Marauder (2008)

Starship Troopers 3: Marauder is the 2008 DTV sequel to 1997's Starship Troopers. Casper Van Dien returns from the first film as Johnny Rico, the war hero now promoted to Colonel in the seemingly never-ending battle against a race of enormous bugs known as the Arachnids. In the film, Col. Rico and his squad of troopers are called into action by his old friend Gen. Dix Hauser (Boris Kodjoe) to rescue Starship Captain Lola Beck (Jolene Blalock) and her crew from a bug infested nightmare. In the second film Starship Troopers II, the decision was made to only use fictional non-firing weapons. However, in this film, real firearms were once again used and were housed in a futuristic shell. Because this film was made in South Africa, many of the weapons seen were of this country's origin.

The following weapons were used in the film Starship Troopers 3: Marauder:

Morita Mk. III (Vektor R5)

The primary weapon used by the Mobile Infantry in the film is the Morita Mk. III. The rifle bears a resemblance to the Objective Individual Combat Weapon, complete with "over-slung" grenade launcher and a long scope that ends in a flashlight(!). The weapon itself is actually a Vektor R5 assault rifle, a South African variant of the Galil assault rifle, housed in a very bulky looking gun mold. As a nod to Aliens and the M41A Pulse Rifle, it canonically chambers a 10x50mm caseless cartridge (although the M41A uses a smaller 10x24mm cartridge) and feeds from a 99-round magazine.
