Strike Back - Season 3 (also known as Strike Back: Vengeance or Strike Back: Cinemax Season 2) once again stars Philip Winchester as Sergeant Michael Stonebridge and Sullivan Stapleton as Sergeant Damien Scott, who work for a top secret British intelligence unit known as Section 20.

The following weapons were used in Season 3 of the television series Strike Back:



Beretta 92FS

The Beretta 92FS is used by many of the antagonists throughout the series, including Conrad Knox (Charles Dance), his lieutenant Karl Matlock (Vincent Regan) and various mercenaries and criminals. South African Police Service (SAPS) officers in episodes 7-10 also use the Beretta 92FS.

Heckler & Koch HK33 (Customized)

SAS trainees who are being instructed by Stonebridge in Episode 1, including Craig Hanson's brother Jake, are armed with Heckler & Koch HK33 rifles. The rifles have been extensively modified by series armorer Hire Arms, with a chopped down barrel similar in length to the HK33KA3, vented South African G3 handguards and a different trigger group than a factory HK33.

The rifles are seen in both unmodified form and in a tactical configuration with UTG quad rail mounts and CAA railed handguards, as well as various optical sights, Surefire tactical lights, and three prong flash hiders.

The Vektor R4 is occasionally seen in the hands of Knox's mercenaries. Dalton uses a scoped R4 in episode 8 to provide sniper cover during Section 20's raid of a mercenary camp, with a short 10-round magazine. Some R4s in the series have carry handles and lack lightening cuts, which are not features of the standard R4.

Unidentified AICS rifle

Matlock gives Kohl a custom sniper rifle in an Accuracy International Chassis System (AICS) as a gift in episode 3. She uses the rifle on several occasions, including in Algeria in episode 4 and during the stadium battle in episode 5. The action inside the chassis is not a Remington Model 700 as would regularly be mounted in an AICS, as identified by the polygonal rather than round profile of the action. Based on the length of the magazine, it appears that this rifle is chambered in a magnum caliber such as .338 Lapua Magnum. The rifle is fitted with a suppressor, Harris bipod and has dark earth furniture giving it the appearance of the British Army L115A3 variant of the Accuracy International Arctic Warfare Magnum.

Genuine Accuracy International L115A3 for comparison - .338 Lapua Magnum
Kohl inspects the rifle. Note the cut-out for the bolt handle which is semi circular. Typically on an AICS this cut-out is square and made from a separate piece of black polymer, suggesting that this stock may actually be from a genuine Accuracy International rifle which has had a different action inserted.
Kohl looks through the rifle's scope. Visible in this shot is polygonal shape of the rifles action. Also note that the sight rail bridges over the ejection port as opposed to on Accuracy International rifles where the top of the action is closed.
Kohl prepares to fire.

Modified AR-15 Sniper Rifle

A modified M16 sniper rifle is used by Scott and Sgt. Baxter in episode 6. The rifle is a custom weapon built by armorer Hire Arms on a M16 SP1 upper receiver that has had its carry handle replaced by a picatinny rail. It also features an ACOG scope with killflash filter, a railed handguard, foregrip bipod, Magpul P-Mags and a Magpul PRS stock.

Armalite AR-10SB Target with Magpul PRS stock & PMag, Leupold Mark 4 scope, and Harris bipod - 7.62x51mm NATO. While the weapon in Strike Back is chambered for 5.56mm, its configuration is similar to this AR-10.
