New Dominion Tank Police (1993)

New Dominion Tank Police is a 6 part OVA based on the 1985 manga series Dominion: Tank Police written by Masamune Shirow (creator of Ghost in the Shell, Black Magic M-66 and Appleseed).

The following weapons were used in the OVA New Dominion Tank Police:


Safari Arms M1911

"the Castigator"

Charles Brenten (whose last name is a reference to the Bren Ten pistol) uses a custom 8 inch, stainless steel Colt Python revolver known as "The Castigator". It boast a wide range of custom features, including custom frame contours, texturing on the front of the trigger-guard, a custom barrel weight and compensator, and a ring hammer. Oddly, the revolver is drawn as being built from a Smith & Wesson Model 66 during the opening credits, as denoted by the S&W-style cylinder release.

Unidentified Handguns

The criminal in the first episode uses an unidentified handgun to hold a restaurant owner hostage.


An M1911-esque pistol and the grip of a revolver can be seen in the bag of confiscated weapons in the police office.


This reoccurring design is first seen in Act 1, where it is outfitted with a sound suppressor, and then is featured more prominently in Act 4. The design draws heavily from the S&W 39 series pistols.

"I'm sorry, ladies, but I'm afraid I'm gonna' hafta' terminate your engagement." The criminal aims his handgun at the Puma sisters.

Members of the Newport Police Department are armed with an unidentified type of revolver.

Submachine Guns


Leona Ozaki's weapon of choice is a MAC-11 submachine gun chambered for .380 ACP/9mm Short. She occasionally uses non-lethal "stun rounds" (likely rubber bullets) to subdue criminals. Another MAC-11 is seen during Act 2 in the hands of a criminal during a flashback sequence.

Seburo MN-23

Nam is seen cleaning several Seburo MN-23 rifles. Another MN-23 makes a brief appearance in Act 4 in the hands of a criminal. The MN-23 was originally designed by Masamune Shirow as a commissioned design for Poseidon.co.jp (a manufacturer of replica resin kits of anime and manga weapons) as a cosmetic upgrade for the then-new electric airsoft version of the FAMAS assault rifle produced by Tokyo Marui. The original "backstory" of the gun specifies that it was intended as a less-than-lethal police riot control weapon, but since then has been used on multiple occasions (usually in adaptations of Shirow's manga) as a 5.56x45mm assault rifle. New Dominion Tank Police is the first instance of the MN-23 making an appearance as an actual assault rifle as opposed to a riot-control weapon.
