Stealth is a 2005 action film directed by Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious, xXx) and distributed by Columbia Pictures. The film stars Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel, and Jamie Foxx as a trio of elite US Navy pilots flying super-advanced F/A-37 Talon fighter jets in a series of missions aimed at combating global terrorism. When an even more advanced AI-controlled fighter called EDI (voiced by Wentworth Miller) begins flying with their team, complications arise as EDI starts to become self-aware.
The following weapons were used in the film Stealth:
The Beretta 92FS is the standard sidearm of US military personnel, standing in for the military M9.
Near the end of the movie Captain George Cummings (Sam Shepard) draws a Walther P99 from his washbag.
Calico M-960A Submachine Gun
A Calico M960A Submachine Gun is carried by the bodyguard of a group of terrorists heading for a summit in an abandoned building in Rangoon.
Heckler & Koch PDW (MP7 Prototype)
A prototype Heckler & Koch MP7, the Heckler & Koch PDW (specifically the 2nd prototype variant), is carried and used by Lieutenant Kara Wade (Jessica Biel) when she is shot down over North Korean Territory. It seems to be the proposed personal defense weapon (PDW) for F/A-37 Talon aircraft pilots in the film. Visible differences between the prototype and final version include the arrangement of the three vent holes in the handguard (a straight line rather than a staggered), a half-length rather than full-length top rail, and a smooth pistol grip.
This is the first ever appearance of the Heckler & Koch MP7 in a motion picture.
A Sterling L2A3 can be seen in the Alaskan base's armory.
Assault & Battle Rifles
Norinco Type 56 / Type 56/1
The Chinese AK-47/AKM variant, the Norinco Type 56 (and 56-1, the folding stock version) are the most commonly seen AK variants in film and television (at least those done by U.S. Production companies). The Type 56 (full stock) version is commonly seen in the movie, usually in the hands of terrorists of many different stripes. Terrorist guards from several organizations are seen wielding the weapon in Rangoon, Islamic extremists in a mountain fortress in Tajikistan, and North Korean soldiers.
In addition to the many Chinese Type 56 rifles, terrorists are also seen wielding what looks like original milled receiver AK-47 rifles with original front sights (not the hooded Type 56 sights). However, given how 'new' they look, they may be the third pattern AK-47 "Legend Series" rifles imported by Poly Technologies Inc. between 1988 and 1989. These were high-end identical clones of the original AK-47 rifles, but very few were imported.
Norinco Type 56-1 Target
Tajikistani terrorists are seen using a long barreled Norinco Type 56-1 'Target' variant. It has an underfolding stock and a long barrel but no bipod.
Sa vz. 58
The Sa vz. 58 is carried by Tajikistani terrorists at the mountain fortress.
Carried by Tajikistani terrorists, they appear to be the Russian built SKS' with laminated stocks and full blade bayonets.
Colt Model 733
Though the official Colt Model 733 was 11.5 inch, 10 inch M16 shorty carbines are seen in the hands of Black Ops thugs in Alaska.
Curiously, all the North Korean troops carry the Yugoslavian-made Zastava M70AB2, with a flashlight taped to the front hand guard.
Heckler & Koch G36K
Lieutenant Ben Gannon (Josh Lucas) takes a Heckler & Koch G36K fitted with a Heckler & Koch AG36 Grenade Launcher and a Bundeswehr ZF 3x4° dual optical sight from a Black Ops guard and uses it to ambush a group of thugs in the hangar. Black Ops thugs can also be seen using G36K rifles with Bundeswehr-standard sights.
One of the Black Ops thugs ambushed by Gannon in the hangar has a F88 Austeyr assault rifle, which he sets on the ground at Gannon's order, later briefly retrieving it during the shootout that follows. Austeyr F88 rifles can also be seen in the Alaskan base's hidden armory as other Black Ops thugs arm up to surround EDI's hangar.
Leader Dynamics T2 MK5
Leader Dynamics T2 MK5 assault rifles are seen in the Alaskan base's armory, and are handed out among the thugs being sent to surround the hangar.
The Alaskan base's armory also has Australian wood-stocked L1A1 SLRs, which are seen in the gun racks and being handed out.
Colt M4A1 Carbine
An M4A1 Carbine is used by a guard to ambush Gannon. Also M4A1s are seen in the Alaskan base's armory in the gun racks and are handed out to the Black Ops thugs preparing to surround EDI's hangar.
One of the Black Ops thugs who surround the hangar is carrying an Australian Austeyr F88S.
Sniper Rifles / Designated Marksman Rifles
A North Korean marksman with the group tasked with tracking down one of the pilots hands an SVD Dragunov to his superior Colonel Yune (Jason Lee), who uses it for the rest of the movie.
An M60 machine gun is seen on the table of the Alaskan base's armory, and is grabbed by one of the thugs as they arm up to surround EDI's hangar.
Heckler & Koch AG36
Mounted under Lieutenant Ben Gannon (Josh Lucas)'s Heckler & Koch G36K is a Heckler & Koch AG36 Grenade Launcher. This is one of the earliest appearances of this grenade launcher in a film. It is only fired once during the movie; for some reason, a sound like a shotgun's pump being operated is foleyed in as Gannon prepares to do so, despite that he is simply pointing the weapon rather than loading it.
SA-7 Grail surface to air missiles are fired at EDI and the other aircraft as they attack the mountain fortress.
DShK Machine Gun
The DShK heavy machine gun is seen most notably at the North Korean border outpost.
Oerlikon 20mm Cannon
At the mountain fortress, there are several gunners who are manning World War Two vintage Oerlikon 20mm Cannons.
M61 Vulcan cannons are presumably mounted on the various US fighters seen during the movie, but are also seen clearly; several appear in the introduction in M167 Vulcan Air Defence System (VADS) towed mountings, while others are visible in Phalanx installations on the US carrier, nominally USS Abraham Lincoln. See trivia below.
During the introductory sequence, the fictional F/A-37 "Talon" fighter piloted by Lieutenant Kara Wade (Jessica Biel) is fired on by antiaircraft guns, including a Bofors 40mm gun in a single mount.
While the carrier in Stealth is nominally the USS Abraham Lincoln, there are actually three carriers in the movie; as well as the correct one, USS Nimitz and USS Carl Vinson are shown at various times during the movie.
At least one full-scale 53-foot mockup of the Talon fighter was created for filming carrier deck scenes. Photographs of this fake aircraft on the deck of the Abraham Lincoln were circulated online with claims that the F/A-37 was a new top-secret US fighter undergoing trials, despite several featuring actress Jessica Biel sitting in the cockpit. All footage of the Talons in the air is CGI.
