Diplomatic Siege (also known as Enemy of My Enemy) is a 1999 American production filmed in Romania. In the United States embassy in Bucharest, Romania, Steve Mitchell (Peter Weller) and Erica Long (Daryl Hannah) are pressed to disarm a nuclear bomb left over from the Cold War that's in countdown mode. Serbian terrorists take over the embassy and threaten to kill one hostage every hour if the US does not release their colonel being held for trial at the Hague for war crimes. Meanwhile at the Hague a disgruntled Croatian guard kills the Serbian colonel for massacring his family, so US has to find an impersonator to fool the terrorists in negotiations. Gen. Buck Swain (Tom Berenger) arrives in Bucharest with a US anti-terrorist squad to retake the embassy. And there's a mole on the embassy staff.

The following weapons were used in the film Diplomatic Siege:


M1911A1 pistol

CIA agents and some terrorists in the film use M1911A1 pistols.

SIG-Sauer P228

A bodyguard is armed with what appears to be a SIG-Sauer P228 pistol, judging by its trigger guard. It could also be an early model P229, which was introduced a few years before this film was made. However, the pistol is obviously an airsoft replica, because real SIG P228/P229s are compact designs with short slides and barrels that fit flush with the muzzle. This pistol was previously misidentified as the similar-looking Zastava CZ99, but the distinctive SIG hammer and thick trigger make this impossible.

Beretta 92F

Terrorist Dushan (Mihai Baranga) holds a Beretta 92F pistol.

Unidentified revolver

Submachine guns


Members of the US Special Forces in the film are seen using MP40 submachine guns. Since the film was produced in Bosnia-Herzegovina, the SMG was most likely the closest to a western-looking firearm that the armorers could find that actually could be fired (the M16's seen earlier were replicas).

Arsenal Shipka

Steve Mitchell (Peter Weller) is also seen firing a Bulgarian Arsenal Shipka submachine gun.

M16 Rifle (MGC Replica)

Some of the US Special Forces commanded by General Buck Swain (Tom Berenger) are armed with what appear to be M16 rifles. Closer inspection makes these rifles out to be MGC replicas.
