8 Days (German: 8 Tage) is a 2019 German apocalyptic thriller mini-series starring Christiane Paul and Mark Waschke.

A 60 kilometer (37.3 miles) wide asteroid, Horus, is anticipated to impact Earth in eight days. With the predicated impact site in France, the populations of Western Europe are right in the crosshairs of the asteroid and society begins to unravel. In Berlin, the Steiner family flee the chaos in hopes of finding sanctuary in the next eight days before life as they know it changes forever.

The following weapons were used in the television series 8 Days:



SIG-Sauer P320 Compact

In Episode 8, when Herrmann (Fabian Hinrichs) finally abandons Marion (Nora Waldstätten) in order to enter the last bunker still open, a German soldier carries what appears to be an MG36, judging by the length of the barrel and the bipod.
