This week's series is on submachine guns, which combines the automatic fire of a machine gun with the cartridge of a pistol.
- FN P90: NATO wanted a new type of personal defense weapon, and they received the P90, a sub machine gun for the future.
- Knight's PDW: Highly mobile and portable for stealth operations, the Knight's PDW is a reliable compact system
- Heckler & Koch MP7: Smaller than a conventional submachine gun, the MP7 A1 is capable of rifle-like effectiveness.
- Uzi: The Uzi is a family of Israeli open bolt, blowback-operated submachine guns.
- Magpul FMG9 The Magpul FMG-9 is a prototype for a new generation of folding submachine guns
- Heckler & Koch G36: The compact folding G36 is built for close-quarter combat in tight spaces and underwater missions.
Notes: The G36 is an assault rifle, grouped here as a comparison. The previous two Ultimate Weapon posts have been edited to provide clickable links and more vivid thumbnails. Photo Credit: IMFDB
