Walther MP - Delta Force - Weapons
The Walther MP was a 9mm sub machine gun used by Delta Force early on the unit's history.
Bridging the gap between the M3a1 Grease Gun and the soon-to-be-adopted Heckler & Koch MP5, the Walther MP came in two variants - the MPL and the shorter MPK. The Walther MP featured a folding tubular stock. It was a blowblack design which fired from a L-shaped bolt. The shorter MPK could be concealed beneath clothing if required.
Walther MPLs had previously been used by Navy SEALs in Vietnam, often fitted with a sound suppressor.
