The Mesas Negras Delta Force team was equipped with state-of-the-art weaponry and equipment. Lightweight, reliable rifles allowed the team freedom of movement and the ability to act decisively while cut off from resupply.
An Enhanced Carbine variant/replacement for the Colt M4 carbine, the HK 416 program was pioneered through a partnership between Delta Force and Heckler & Koch. The 416 is more reliable than the M4 while offering backwards compatibility with lower receivers, magazines, and rail-mounted accessories.
This family of rifles consists of two main types. The SCAR-L, for light, is chambered in the 5.56mm NATO cartridge and the SCAR-H, for heavy, fires 7.62mm NATO ammunition. Both are available in further variants such as sniper or CQB.
Dragonskin Body Armor
Made from overlapping ballistic discs, much like ancient scale armor, Dragonskin is a lightweight, flexible armor capable of defeating even the mighty 7.62mm round.
The Diego Garcia Delta Force team had their choice of weaponry when they went through the Gateway. This is what they chose and why.
Although never approved for mainstream usage, the M29's versatility and ability to penetrate the heavy armor of the Turai are pros that outweigh (/ahem/) its considerable weight.
The Delta team uses the 20mm cannon as the primary weapon, using the 5.56mm rifle in emergencies. Barrett M82A2
Easily able to penetrate armor, the .50 caliber Barrett M82A2 provides semiautomatic long-range power in a slightly more compact form than its big brother, the M82A1. FN FAL
An older battle rifle chosen by Brock Jordan for its light weight compared to the heavy ordnance chosen by the rest of the team. The 7.62mm FN FAL is not the most lethal weapon in the group, but it packs far more punch (and subsequent recoil) than more modern designs.
