Navy SEAL Photo - SEALs With MP5s
Vintage shot of Navy SEALs armed with 9mm HK MP5 sub machine guns.
These SEALs are wearing rebreather units for covert underwater insertion.

5.56mmx45mm carbines such as the MK18 CQBR are more prevalent in SEAL armories these days.
U.S. Navy SEALs are the U.S. Navy's commando unit.
Experts at operating in, under, on and out of the water, the SEALs have proven themself a potent force in countless operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
