Iron Man is the 2008 feature film adaptation of the Marvel comic book series. Robert Downey, Jr. stars as Tony Stark, the CEO of a major weapons manufacturer who is seriously wounded in an ambush in Afghanistan and is captured by enemy fighters. While being held hostage and being kept alive by an improvised reactor placed near his heart, Stark uses his expertise to assemble a massive armored suit that he uses against his captors. Upon his rescue, he refines his armored suit design for use against those opposing forces intent on doing evil in the world. The film, which was directed by Jon Favreau (Cowboys & Aliens) is part of "Phase One" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that includes The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger and culiminated in 2012's The Avengers. The film would spawn two sequels: 2010's Iron Man 2 and 2013's Iron Man 3.
The following weapons were used in the film Iron Man:
The S.H.I.E.L.D. agents including Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) accompanying Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) to arrest Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) are armed with Glock 17s.
Heckler & Koch USP45
Members of the Ten Rings including Abu Bakaar (Sayed Badreya) carry the Heckler & Koch USP pistols in the .45 ACP variant as their main sidearms, which these pistols are made by Stark Industries. When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) escapes from their camp using the Mark I suit, one insurgent tires to kill him by shooting him in the head with his USP, only to have the bullet ricochet off the armor and kill him instead.
Heckler & Koch UMP45
Several Teng Rings insurgents are armed with Stark Industries-made Heckler & Koch UMP45s, fitted with C-More red dot sights and Surefire Tactical vertical grips.
In the beginning of the film, United States Air Force Airmen in Afghanistan accompanying Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) are seen armed with M4A1 carbines fitted with Insight Technologies ISM-V scopes (optics designed originally for the Heckler & Koch XM8 rifles) and KAC foregrips. Some of Raza's Ten Rings fighters carry M4A1s fitted with C-More and/or Trijicon ACOG scopes, foregrips and AN/PEQ-2 designators and fire at the Mark I Iron Man suit. USAF Pararescue Jumpers accompanying Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes (Terrence Howard) carry M4A1 carbines when picking up Tony after his escape. Upon Tony Stark return to the United States, airport security also carry M4s. In a deleted scene, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) attempts to use an USAF Airman's M4A1 Carbine, but finds out that it's jammed. The M4A1 used by Robert Downey Jr. in the deleted scene was actually an airsoft weapon due to his ineligibility to wield real firearms on movie sets. One of Raza's men wields a M4A1 with a M26 Modular Accessory Shotgun System (MASS) underbarrel bolt action shotgun and a Magpul M93 Modular buttstock as they hold Tony captive. The image seen here is a heavily edited clip that is included on the U.S. version of the trailer. The M4A1 with M26 MASS is put in to replace another shot of the weapon that is pointed at Tony Starks' head. This is because the MPAA won't allow trailers to show any weapons to pointed at a person, even if that's how the final cut shows it. This seems to be a fairly common practice as evidenced in the trailers for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Cop Out. Some of Obadiah Stane's (Jeff Bridges) men are seen armed with M4A1 carbines fitted with M203 grenade launchers.
Heckler & Koch G36KV
Most of the Ten Rings insurgents carry Heckler & Koch G36KV carbines with various attachments, sold to them by Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) on behalf of Stark Industries.
Heckler & Koch G36C
Several insurgents of the Ten Rings use the Heckler & Koch G36C. During the escape from the Ten Rings' camp, Yinsen (Shaun Toub) grabs a G36C dropped by one of the insurgents and runs towards after them while firing wildly, trying to divert attention from Stark until the Mark I suit is powered up and he can use it to fight his way out.
Heckler & Koch G36K with AG36
Raza (Faran Tahir) is seen with a H&K G36K fitted with a Heckler & Koch AG36 grenade launcher, which he fires at Stark in the prototype Iron Man armor, but misses and is knocked out by Stark's missile instead. Erroneously the grenade fired is shown traveling like a rocket, with a flame trail and a perfectly horizontal trajectory. Grenades are not rocket propelled and travel in an arc.
SIG SG 552
One of Raza's men is seen armed with a SIG SG 552 with tactical outfitting.
IMI Galil MAR
One of Raza's men is seen armed with a IMI Galil MAR, the most compact version of the Galil assault rifle.
M203 Grenade Launcher
Obadiah Stane's (Jeff Bridges) men are seen with M203 grenade launchers mounted onto their M4A1 carbines.
When Stark is giving his presentation of the Jericho missile, a row of M249E2 SAWs are seen on a table.
USAF Airmen in Afghanistan are sen manning FN M240B machine guns mounted on top of their Humvees.
Both Ten Rings fighters and USAF Airmen in Afghanistan can be seen using the Browning M2HB 50-caliber machine gun. The Ten Rings fighters place the machine guns in their camp, with the USAF Airmen have them mounted on top of their Humvees. Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes (Terrence Howard) is seen firing a Browning M2 machine gun from atop of Humvee in a deleted scene.
FN GAU-21 Aircraft Machine Gun
An FN GAU-21 Aircraft Machine Gun is seen mounted on the HH-60 Pave Hawk that locates Tony.
An F-22 Raptor is seen opening fire on Iron Man with its 20mm M61A2 Vulcan Cannon.
FGM-148 Javelin (Prop)
Prop FGM-148 Javelin missile launchers can be seen in the Ten Rings' camp.
BGM-71 TOW missile launchers can be seen in the Ten Rings' camp.
Armored Suit Weapons
The Iron Man Mark I suit, which Stark assembles while in captivity, is armed with two primary weapons:
Two flamethrowers are mounted in each arm of the Mark I suit.
A rocket launcher is also mounted in the left arm.
During the end credits, a blueprint drawing featuring the Iron Man Mark II suit that would become the War Machine is seen with an M134 Minigun mounted on the shoulder.
The Iron Man Mark III suit (the primary suit used by Stark) carries energy repulsor weapons and other launchers.
Forearm Rocket Launcher
A rocket launcher is mounted in the Mark III's right arm.
Multiple Projectile Launcher
The Mark III is also fitted with two small-caliber multi-barrel projectile launchers in the shoulders. This system is possibly based on the Metal Storm weapon systems.
The "Iron Monger" suit that is secretly assembled by Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) carries several massive weapons:
A six-barreled Gatling-type gun (which appears to be based in part on the 30mm General Electric GAU-8/A Avenger weapons system mounted on the A-10 Warthog) is mounted in the right arm.
Rotary Rocket Launcher
A rotary rocket launcher is mounted underneath the left arm.
Shoulder Rocket Launcher
A massive rocket launcher with a laser sight is mounted in the shoulder.
