In Real Life

The Heckler & Koch MP5 is a German SMG (Submachine gun), that first hit the market in 1966. The variant in the game (due to the red stripe) is most likely to be the MP5K, a shortened variant released in 1976 that can fire 9mm rounds at 900 per minute, with a muzzle velocity of 1,230 feet per second. The MP5K was designed to be used by clandestine operations and special services units, and was designed to be used at close quarters.
