Navy SEAL Armed With Type 56
A Navy SEAL combat swimmer rises out of the water and aims a Type 56 assault rifle.
SEALs typically use M4a1, MK 18 CQBR or MK 17 SCAR-H rifles but occasionally train with foreign weapons such as this Chinese-made variant of the Russian-designed AK-47/AKM Kalishnikov rifle.
The Norinco Type 56 is a 7.62mmx39mm caliber assault weapon that is widespread use among America's enemies around the world.
They are relatively cheap, easy to operate and maintain.
The Type 56 and Kalishnikovs have a reputation for being rugged and reliable.
The Type 56 variant can be visually identified by its fully-hooded front sight, as apposed to the partly-open sights found on the AK-47/AKMs.
