  • Armed Boarding Parties

    Hi all,
    Do the NS use any weapon other than the USP for armed boarding parties? The only images I've seen of such are with the pistol. Did they use the Gustav in the past or was it always just the pistol?
    Surely if theres a situation that requires a little more ammunition a P90 or MP5 or even 9mm Steyr would be better?
    I knew a simple soldier boy.....
    Who grinned at life in empty joy,
    Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
    And whistled early with the lark.

    In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
    With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
    He put a bullet through his brain.
    And no one spoke of him again.

    You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
    Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
    Sneak home and pray you'll never know
    The hell where youth and laughter go.

        gustav used during the early salmon war period,due to the nature of the weapon the mag was never on the gun. The FN was used during early eigthies . When the NS developed its armed boarding capabilities its use of equipment evolved and we ended up using the right tools for the job in hand.
