The MG4 is a modern light machine gun of German origin. It was developed by Heckler & Koch in order to provide the German military with a light machine gun in order to supplement the older and heavier MG3. The MG4 is a direct competitor to the widely used Belgian FN Minimi.
The FIM-43 Redeye is a Cold War era man portable SAM system of US origin. It was developed in the 1960\'s as machine guns proved of limited effectiveness against jet fighters. The Redeye was the first US man portable SAM system.
The RBS-70 is a modern man portable SAM system of Swedish origin. It was developed as a highly mobile system to primarily protect predefined areas, not troops on the move. The manual SACLOS guidance sets this system apart from the more common infrared homing MANPADS designs.
The M911 CHET is a Cold War era heavy equipment transporter of US origin. It was acquired in the mid 1970\'s as a more capable and lower cost alternative to the M746 HET that had been developed only years earlier.
