Hot Shots! Part Deux
Hot Shots! Part Deux (French for "Part Two") is the 1993 sequel to Hot Shots! (1991). Charlie Sheen returns as Topper Harley, who is asked to join a rescue team to get back his former commanding officer who was caught behind enemy lines. Also returning from the first film are Valeria Golino and Lloyd Bridges. While the first film was chiefly a parody of Top Gun, the sequel was mostly a parody of the Rambo films (the cast even includes Rambo co-star Richard Crenna).
The following weapons were used in the film Hot Shots! Part Deux:
Topper Harley (Charlie Sheen) uses the M60E3 during the mission.

As he speaks to Ramada, Topper holds the M60E3. Note the dummy rounds.

Browning M2HB machine guns are dual-mounted on the bow of the Apocalypse Now PBR carrying "Captain Willard" (an uncredited Martin Sheen). Another single M2 is mounted in the stern of the PBR. These are likely just mock-ups.

M16 style rifle
In some scenes, the rifle carried by Rabinowitz appears to have a forward assist like on a Colt AR-15A2 Sporter II and the same model of fake M203 used in Predator and Scarface.

World IMFDB Exclusive: Screen used Faux M203 Launcher on M16A1 with quadrant and front ladder sight - 5.56x45mm. This is verified screen used from the film Scarface
. Two 30-round magazines have been taped together with black gaffer's tape to emulate the way Tony Montana loaded his weapon in the film. What is interesting is that the tape in the movie does really appear to be motion picture gaffer's tape, which would only be common on... a movie set.

and its 1965 film adaption.

Grenades are seen on the crate along with other weapons.
Custom Oerlikon 20mm Cannon
The Iraqi Boat Captain (Gregory Sierra) is seen firing an Oerlikon 20mm Cannon mounted on the Iraqi ship. In order to make the weapon more menacing, two drum magazines attached together to make a saddle drum are mounted on the weapon instead of the usual single magazine. While there are left-handed 20mm Oerlikon drums, these are rarer than right-handed drums, and so the saddle drum is made from two right-handed drums with the one on the left mounted backwards.

Oerlikon mounts a saddle drum magazine, seemingly made by simply attaching two regular drums together. The drum to the right is backwards as a result.
The Boat Captain fires the cannon.
M47 Dragon Anti-Tank Guided Missile Launcher
An M47 Dragon is seen carried by the team. Rabinowitz is seen taking up the launcher while at the prison compound. This particular launcher is missing the optical sight and bipod: in other words, it is an expended launch tube. An actual M47 would not be used as a plain shoulder fired launcher with no other means of support, and could not be fired at all without a sighting unit attached since the trigger is on the right-hand side of the sight (of course, this can be overlooked given the way the launcher is actually used in the film).

Anti-Tank Guided Missile Launcher. Note the shape of the foam rubber base compared to the image above: this is blown apart when the missile is fired, showing this to be a spent tube.
Aiming the launcher. The folding sights mounted on the original sight bracket are a nice bit of prop work, and do a very good job of looking like they actually belong on the weapon. They appear to have been inspired by the folding sight of the Hotchkiss-Brandt SARPAC rocket launcher, a rather obscure 70s-era French attempt to produce a rival to the American M72 LAW
The Iraqi sailor shoots with a fake missile built to look like an RPG-type launcher.

Saddam (Jerry Haleva) tries to shoot down a helicopter with what appears to be an RPG-7. This is likely a mock-up similar to the ones seen in Rambo: First Blood Part II and Red Dawn.
