G36 to protect Prince Harry
News of the World (so it must be true) reports:
"PRINCE Harry’s bodyguards have been trained to use the supergun made famous by Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 3.
The SAS-trained officers will protect the soldier prince with the fearsome Heckler & Koch G36 pump-action assault rifles if he is sent to another war zone.
It is the clearest signal yet that Harry, who fought the Taliban in Afghanistan, may return to the frontline.
His bodyguards recently took the powerful rifles to Afghanistan on a secret fact-finding mission. They were taught how to “take out” suicide bombers and snipers at long range.
The team of crackshots, from Scotland Yard’s S014 unit, usually carry Glock 17 pistols. Harry, 24, who last week was on a charity motorbike trek in Africa with his brother William, wants to take part in a second tour of duty."
Hm, why don't they use SA80?..
