The Defeated is a German-Canadian television series directed by Måns Mårlind and starring Taylor Kitsch as U.S. police officer Max McLaughlin and Nina Hoss as German chief inspector and studied semiologist, Elsie Garten. Berlin in 1946: U.S. policeman Max McLaughlin arrives in the American occupation zone to help establish a police force in the war-torn city. McLaughlin is assisted by the German policewoman Elsie. During their work, the two must put a stop to the underworld figure "Engelmacher", who has taken power and organized crime in the turmoil after the war. While McLaughlin pursues his official job under his superior Tom Franklin, he also has private plans: his brother Moritz remained in Germany after the war. Officially, Moritz is considered missing, but Max soon discovers that he is waging a private war and hunting down escaped Nazi criminals on his own.

The following weapons can be seen in the miniseries The Defeated:
