SEAL Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden
SEAL Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden is a 2012 dramatization of the raid by US Navy SEALs on Bin Laden's compound in 2011. Unlike the similarly-themed Zero Dark Thirty, this film focuses primarily on the mission itself and its participants. Originally titled Code Name: Geronimo, the film was directed by John Stockwell and premiered in 2012 in the US on the National Geographic channel on November 4 and on Netflix on November 5.
The following weapons were used in the film SEAL Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden:
Heckler & Koch HK416
The majority of the US Navy SEALs in the film are armed with Heckler & Koch HK416 carbines, notably seen during training as well as the actual raid on Bin Laden's compound. The rifles are fitted with suppressors, EOTech sights and AN/PEQ-15 ATPIALs. Judging by the receiver markings, some of the HK416s used in the film are actually 416 uppers fitted to standard M4A1 lower receiver units. Among the SEALs who are seen using the HK416 include Cherry (Anson Mount), Stunner (Cam Gigandet), Mule (Xzibit) and the Lieutenant Commander (Robert Knepper).
A Taliban fighter inside bin Laden's compound can be seen firing what looks like an AKM right after the commencement of the raid.
Bin Laden's son Khalid fires an AKMS at the Navy SEALS during the raid. In an alternate version of the film, an AKMS-type rifle is seen on an undercover video and is determined to be the same custom AK rifle that was once carried by bin Laden.
An AKMSU, distinguishable from the AKS-74U by its ribbed 7.62x39mm magazine, can be seen being loaded up for use by Osama bin Laden following the commencement of the raid. The weapon is apparently meant to stand in for the AKS-74U that Bin Laden frequently wielded in real-life propaganda videos filmed prior to the 9/11 attacks, though this is an inaccuracy as the weapon recovered from Bin Laden's bedroom was actually a Russian-made AKMS with counterfeit Chinese markings.
Al-Qaeda fighters in bin Laden's Pakistan compound can be seen carrying Type 56-1 rifles with under-folding stocks and Bakelite magazines. Taliban shooters in Afghanistan also use the Type 56-1 in an ambush.
Springfield Armory M1A SOCOM 16
What appears to be a Springfield Armory M1A SOCOM 16 is used by a sniper to take out a fighter in bin Laden's compound.
Benelli M4 Super 90
SIG-Sauer P226 E2
The SIG-Sauer P226 E2 is the sidearm carried by many of the SEALs in the film. During the preparation for the raid, one SEAL is seen checking his SIG, where the "E2" is readily visible on the slide.
Reck Miami 92F
One of the CIA agents watching bin Laden's compound wields what appears to be a Reck Miami 92F blank-firing pistol with a chopped barrel similar to that of a Beretta 92FS Centurion. The revealed upper slide and the distinctive offset slide markings near the front of the slide shows that this is likely a Reck Miami 92F, rather than Beretta Cougar Inox as previously thought.
Beretta 8000 Cougar
A Beretta 8000 Cougar is seen in the hands of a CIA agent.
FN Mk 48 Mod 0
An M134 Minigun is briefly seen during the intro sequence. It can be recognized as an M134 and not a USAF GAU-17/A by its flash-hider, which is not slotted.
M240D Machine Gun
Black Hawk helicopters are seen with M240D machine guns in door mounts.
M230 Chain Gun
AH-64 Apaches mounted with 30mm M230 Chain Guns are also seen in the film.
M84 Stun Grenade
M84 stun grenades are used by the SEALs during the raid.
