The MP5 (German: Maschinenpistole 5; English: Machine Pistol Model 5) is a 9×19mm Parabellum submachine gun produced by German arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch. It was first developed in 1964, and has since been adopted by many police and military agencies worldwide.The MP5 has many different variants, including the MP5SD (German: Schalldämpfer; English: Sound Suppressor), an integrally Suppressed variant; the MP5-N (Navy), a specially designed variant for the United States Navy made in 1986; and the MP5K, a CQB variant which has no stock and a shortened barrel. In addition, several versions are equipped with a compact, detachable forward handgrip which further augments the gun's great accuracy.
The MP5 is the default submachine gun of the United States Marine Corps Anti-tank kit. As with most of the other submachine guns, it is possessed of low damage, coupled with relatively high spread and a relatively high rate of fire. It is nearly identical to the PP-19 in most ways, although it has a slightly smaller magazine capacity of thirty rounds as compared to forty-five rounds.
Battlefield 2: Modern CombatEdit
The HK MP5, (known as the MP5-N in the PS2/Xbox version), is featured as the primary weapon of the USMC's Special Ops Kit. Like all Special Ops weapons, the MP5 is equipped with a suppressor and scope. The weapon is fairly accurate and has a high rate of fire, but doesn't do quite as much damage as the Assault's M4 Carbine, making it well suited for close quarter engagements but not as effective at longer ranges.
The MP5 is a purchasable submachine gun featured in Battlefield Play4Free for the Engineer kit. It features a long range and high accuracy among the submachine guns. It has less recoil than many of the other submachine guns, allowing it to be fired in longer bursts at range.
- The MP5's file name in Battlefield 2 is
USRIF_MP5_A3, meaning that the variant depicted in-game is meant to be the A3 variant.
