Strike Back - Season 2 (2011) The US title of this season is Strike Back: Cinemax Season 1

Strike Back: Project Dawn is the sequel series to Chris Ryan's Strike Back and stars Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton as two special forces soldiers who must team up to thwart the plans of a Pakistani terrorist named Latif. The series, which also goes under the title Strike Back - Season 2 or Strike Back - Cinemax Season 1 aired for ten episodes on Sky1 in the United Kingdom and Cinemax in the United States, and was filmed in South Africa and Hungary.

The following weapons were used in Season 2 of the television series Strike Back:



Vektor Z88

What appears to be an Beretta 92FS is used through Project Dawn. Because this season was partially filmed in South Africa is most likely the Beretta's South African clone, the Vektor Z88. It is seen used by Abasi Sawalha (David Dennis) and Shabbir (Zee Sulleyman) when they launch a terrorist attack on a New Delhi Hotel in episodes 1 & 2. Sergeant Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) uses a captured pistol for much of episode 2. In episode 6, Stonebridge's Vektor SP1 turns into a Beretta due to a continuity error. Donoghue (Peter O'Meara), a KFOR officer, uses a Beretta in episodes 7 & 8.
