The P-120 is an anti-ship missile of Soviet origin. It was developed in the 1960\'s as a replacement for the P-5 Pityorka (SS-N-3 Shaddock) missile. The design is based on the P-70 Ametist (SS-N-7 Starbright). Unlike the P-70 the P-120 can be launched from both surface vessels and submarines, making it a multi-purpose missile.
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 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 AS Val is a silenced assault rifle of Soviet origin. It was developed in the 1980\'s to be used in urban combat and the reconnaissance role. The name AS stands for Avtomat Special\'nyj, which is Russian for special automatic rifle. The nickname Val means shaft and refers to the prominent silencer. The AS Val stems from the VSS Vintorez silenced sniper rifle and has a 70% parts commonality.
The Valkiri is a multiple rocket launcher of South African origin. The design is based on the Soviet BM-21 Grad, but was slightly improved in order to counter it from longer distances. Valkiri is Afrikaans for Valkyrie. The product improved Valkiri Mk II is known as Bateleur, which is a type of bird of prey.
