Firefight with Canadian forces against Taliban during Operation Zahar, a joint Afghan National army / coalition forces security operation to remove Taliban forces from the Zjarey district. Code: Operation Enduring Freedom Equipment: M4 Carbine - The M4 Carbine is a family of firearms tracing its lineage back to earlier carbine versions of the M16, all based on the original AR-15 made by ArmaLite. The weapon is a shorter and lighter version of the M16A2 assault rifle, achieving 80% parts commonality with the M16A2. The M4 has selective fire options including semi-automatic and three-round burst (like the M16A2), while the M4A1 has a "full auto" option in place of the three-round burst. The M4A1 is sometimes also found with a heavier barrel to withstand heat from sustained fully-automatic fire. AK-47 - The AK-47 (Avtomat Kalashnikova 1947) is a gas-operated assault rifle designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov, produced by Russian manufacturer IZH and used in many Eastern bloc nations during the Cold War. It was adopted and standardized in 1947. Compared with the autoloading rifles used in World War II, the AK-47 was generally lighter, more compact, with a shorter range, a smaller 7.62 × 39 mm cartridge, and was capable of selective fire. It was one of the first true assault rifles and remains the most widely used. The AK-47 and its numerous variants and descendants have been produced in greater numbers than any other assault rifle and are in production to this day. Location: Afghanistan - Afghanistan is a landlocked country at the crossroads of Asia. Generally considered a part of Central Asia, it is sometimes ascribed to a regional bloc in either the Middle East or South Asia, as it has cultural, ethno-linguistic, and geographic links with most of its neighbors. It is bordered by Iran in the west, Pakistan in the south and east, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan in the north, and the People's Republic of China to the east.

A Sturmgewehr 44 (StG44, MP 44/43) foi a primeira arma explicitamente chamada de espingarda de assalto ou Sturmgewehr. Entrou em serviço para o exército Alemão na Segunda Guerra Mundial. Em 1946 Mikhail Kalashnikov examinou uma StG44 capturada e usou funcionalidades chave do design na produção da espingarda de assalto AK-47. A Sturmgewehr 44 foi desenvolvida pela Alemanha Nazi nas etapas iniciais da Segunda Guerra Mundial. Nas primeiras etapas da guerra, o exército Alemão considerava a espingarda como apenas uma arma de "suporte", sendo a arma primária da infantaria a metralhadora. Num típico esquadrão os soldados carregavam consideravelmente mais munição para a sua MG34 do que para as suas próprias espingardas. Contudo em combate a metralhadora provou ser demasiado grande para ser operada durante a batalha, significando que os soldados precisavam de usar as suas espingardas enquanto avançavam. Enquanto os defensores não tinham limitações no uso das suas metralhadoras devido a encontrarem-se em posições fixas. Assim o exército que dependia das suas tácticas blitzkrieg de rápida ofensiva, viu-se sem armas eficazes para um avanço rápido e para responderem contra as espingardas com maior taxa de fogo dos aliados. Por este motivo foi aumentado o uso de pistolas-metralhadoras como a MP28, MP38, e MP40, formando esquadrões conhecidos como tropas de assalto que podiam criar uma elevada velocidade de disparo enquanto avançavam. Infelizmente o uso de munição de pistolas nas pistolas-metralhadoras fazia com que estas tivessem um alcance demasiado curto, tornando as tropas de assalto apenas eficazes em zonas urbanas. A MP40 (Maschinenpistole 40) foi uma submetralhadora desenvolvida e utilizada pela Alemanha Nazi durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial. A MP40 foi descendente da MP38, as diferenças estando no custo de produção. As alterações foram um resultado de vários testes com milhares de MP38 (em serviço desde 1939), utilizadas durante a Invasão da Polónia. As alterações foram incorporadas numa versão intermédia (MP38/40), e mais tarde utilizadas na produção inicial da versão MP40. Mais de um milhão de unidades foram fabricadas de todas versões durante a guerra. A MP40 era geralmente chamada por Schmeisser, após o nome do desenhador de armas Hugo Schmeisser. Embora Hugo Schmeisser não tivessse desenhado a MP40, mas tivesse ajudado no desenho da MP41 e a Sturmgewehr 44. E também Schmeisser não trabalhava para Erma, mas sim para Haenel. O desenhador da MP38 e MP40 foi Heinrich Vollmer.

The AK-47 (or Kalashnikov) is a selective fire, gas operated 7.62mm assault rifle developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov in the 1940s. Six decades later, the AK-47 and its variants and derivatives remain in service throughout the world. It has been manufactured in many countries and has seen service with regular armed forces as well as irregular, revolutionary and terrorist organizations worldwide. The designation AK-47 stands for Автомат Калашникова 47 (Avtomat Kalashnikova 47) - Kalashnikov automatic rifle, model of 1947. Design work on the AK began in 1944. In 1946 a version of the rifle, the AK-46, was presented for official military trials, and a year later the fixed stock version was introduced into service with select units of the Red Army. The AK-47 was officially accepted by the Soviet Armed Forces in 1949. An early development of the design was the AKS-47 (S—Skladnoy or "folding"), which differed in being equipped with an underfolding metal shoulder stock. The AK-47 was one of the first true assault rifles and, due to its durability, low production cost and ease of use, the weapon and its numerous variants remain the most widely used assault rifles in the world — so much so that more AK-type rifles have been produced than all other assault rifles combined.[2][3] It was also used by the majority of the member states of the former Warsaw Pact. The AK-47 was also used as a basis for the development of many other types of individual and crew-served firearms.
