Situation Critical is docu-drama broadcasted on National Geographic Channel.

"Situation Critical" (2007-2008)

The following weapons were used in the television series Situation Critical:

Beretta 92FS

The Beretta 92FS is used by LAPD officers in episode 'Hollywood Shootout', PFLP hostage takers in 'Operation Entebbe' and in 'Moscow Siege' thus making it the most commonly seen gun in the series.

Smith & Wesson Model 10

Fake SIG-Sauer P226R

SIG-Sauer P226Rs are used by Pablo Escobar and his bodyguards as their pistol 'Hunting Pablo Escobar' and later seen in the baggage of the PFLP hijackers in 'Operation Entebbe'. This is completely anachronistic as the original non-railed version of the P226 did not come to market until 1985. Pablo Escobar was killed in 1993 and 'Operation Entebbe' happened even earlier, in 1976! The Railed version of the P226 did not even exist until the mid-2000s. In these episodes, most of the examples of the SIG P226R are airsoft pistols. However, the series' armorers may not have been able to get a Beretta 92 due to lack of resources or budget.

Uzis are seen in the hands of IDF personnel in 'Assault on Entebbe' when their C-130 lands at Entebbe, however they seem to erroneously change to the AK-47 when the enter the airport building. It is also used by Pablo Escobar's bodyguard in 'Hunting Pablo Escobar'.

IMI Tavor CTAR-21

IMI Tavor CTAR-21s are used by Colombian Special Forces in 'Hunting Pablo Escobar'. This is highly anachronistic since Tavors did not exist in 1992 when the incident took place. Colombian Special Forces really uses the Tavor but that is only after 2007.
