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.
