Pretty sure the launcher is an older FIM-43 Redeye standing in for a Stinger - the slanted pistol grip and lack of the IFF antenna box are dead giveaways. Also spotted an older Colt Carbine (probably a M653) in that last M16 screencap. Finally, in the first standard M16A1 cap there's also an AK that also has a grenade launcher attached, though it's too obscured to make a positive ID, as well as a SAW/Minimi machine gun.

Naw, it looks like it's a prop referenced from multiple sources, the gripstock is too big and blocky to come from a Redeye and the tube looks like they based it on a M134 Stinger gunnery trainer since it has that performance indicator box at the back. Plus the grip and trigger don't look anything like the ones from a Redeye. It does have the IFF antenna, you can see it here:

It's just in the fully folded position. Evil Tim (talk) 12:38, 18 July 2018 (EDT)
Ah, missed that, and the page didn't previously have the other image of it in the box that clearly shows it, so yep. Anyway, the grip and trigger both threw me off as they look nothing like those on a Stinger - but looking again they don't really fit with those on a Redeye either as you said. Of course as you noted it's likely just not a not-too-accurate prop. StanTheMan (talk) 15:14, 19 July 2018 (EDT)
