Unidentified Firearms

Screenshots added. Have at 'em. Note that most of the scenes featuring guns weren't actually shot in Italy or Sicily. So the "Italian" soldiers and cops are probably using American guns. - Kooshmeister

Various Guns

United States Marines (or what are supposed to be Marines, in-story) bail out of Calder's helicopter when it lands to capture the Ymir. They carry a multitude of weapons. The shot of them actually exiting the helicopter appears to be wartime stock footage.

A bazooka of some kind.
What appears to be a two-legged machine gun with legs folded.

Nice work Kooshmeister

But try to stem back the sarcastic commentary. We've gone on a crusade to excise IMFDB of all of that. Thanks. MoviePropMaster2008 19:24, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

I apologize, I just sometimes try and inject a little too much goofiness I guess. - Kooshmeister

Id'ing guns

If you take a look at the Band of Brothers page, that should help you id some of the rifles. --Ben41 00:39, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Uh, yeah. Thanks Ben41. I was flabbergasted at some of the confusion regarding some "cough" "cough" very well known firearms .. *cough!* but your suggestions keeps us from being tempted to make fun .... LOL! ;) MoviePropMaster2008 00:56, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
Sorry but most American WWII-era weapons look alike to me, especially the rifles which is what the majority of the stock footage soldiers are carrying above. Nevertheless, I'll take a look. - Kooshmeister
They all look alike? Are you kidding? ;) LOL! I hear the screams of the COD players echoing in the hallways. I don't know where you are from, but you must not be an American, I suppose. I understand non-Americans not knowing American weapons, especially classic ones! ;) MoviePropMaster2008 01:29, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
I was born in Augusta, Georgia, although I spent my early childhood in Germany in Oberammergau due to my father being a NATO officer. I understand this could be taken to mean I should know about American guns due to my father being in the military, but whatever. - Kooshmeister

Not a bazooka

The weapon being used in the screen caps is not, I believe, a American bazooka but rather a German panzerschreck. The sheild is the most apparent give away. But in the third screen cap, a view from behind the gunner and the weapon, notice how the shoulder rest also looks like the type on the panzerschreck, and there is no bell shaped flange on the muzzle like the picture of the M9 bazooka has (but the panzerschreck does not).

Panzerschreck 88mm with rocket

other long guns

While many of the Italian troops are carrying M1 Garands, some of the background Italian soldiers in the battle in the Roman ruins are carrying what appear to be Carcano 91/41 long rifles. --Carl N. Brown 23:40, 23 June 2012 (CDT)
