Wz. 96A Beryl

Polish soldiers are armed with the Wz. 96A Beryl. American soldiers also carry wz. 88s, as opposed to the more historically accurate M16A4 or M4 carbine.

One of the Polish soldiers is armed with a railed wz. 96A Beryl fitted with what appears to be an EOTech 512 or 552 holographic sight.

Ditto. The rail used is the POPC III, indicated by its lower rail walls (which block off the iron sights). The EOtech holographic sight might be historically inaccurate as military EOTechs were introduced in 2001 and by 2004-2005 were still being in the process of adoption by the US forces and it is unknown if they were used by anyone else around that time.

Machine Guns


Several Polish soldier are armed with PKMs. PKMs are also mounted on pintle mounts of Polish vehicles.
