Redacted is a 2007 Iraq War film written and directed by Brian De Palma. The film is fictional, although it is loosely based on the 2006 Mahmudiyah killings, in which a group of US Army soldiers raped a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and killed her and her family. The film, which received mixed reactions from critics and was a box office disappointment in its limited release, stirred up controversy, as many felt the depiction of US soldiers in the film was too harsh and did not paint a fair representation of US involvement in the Iraq War.
The following guns were used in the film Redacted:
As in reality, the M4A1 Carbine is the standard-issue weapon of the US Army soldiers in the film, many of which are customized with optical gunsights, lasers, and foregrips.
M203 grenade launcher
Some of the US Army soldiers, including SPC B.B. Rush (Daniel Stewart Sherman) and SGT Jim Vazquez (Mike Figueroa), carry M4A1 Carbines fitted with M203 grenade launchers.
Norinco Type 56
During the gang-rape sequence of the film, PFC Reno Flake (Patrick Carroll) disarms an Iraqi grandfather of his Norinco Type 56 after he attempts to defend his family with it. He then shoots and kills the whole family off-screen with it.
Mujahideen Shura Council/Al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) members who capture PFC Angel Salazar in revenge for the killings of the Iraqi family are seen armed with AKM rifles.
The standard issue sidearm of the US Army soldiers in the film is the Beretta 92FS, standing in for the M9. A drunken PFC Reno Flake (Patrick Carroll) uses his to threaten SPC Lawyer McCoy (Rob Devaney) when he tries to stop the gang-rape of the Iraqi girl.
FN M249-E2 SAW
SPC B.B. Rush (Daniel Stewart Sherman) carries a FN M249-E2 SAW during the scene in which the unit learns that their tour has been extended.
PFC Reno Flake (Patrick Carroll) uses a HMMWV-mounted Browning M2HB to shoot and kill a pregnant Iraqi woman when her husband tries to rush through a checkpoint in an attempt to quickly reach a hospital.
