|Weapon type:||Sub-machine gun|
The MP5, also called the SMG in other Grand Theft Auto games, is a sub-machine gun that appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, and Grand Theft Auto IV. The gun can be purchased at an AmmuNation. The MP5 is also a signature weapon that is used by FBI officers in all games except GTA III.
In Real Life
The MP5 was developed in the 1960s by a West German arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch GmbH (HK). The company, motivated by the success of the Heckler & Koch G3 rifle developed a group of small arms consisting of four types of firearms (all based on the G3 design layout), where the first type was chambered in 7.62 x 51 mm NATO, the second – using the 7.62 x 39 mm M43 round, third – the intermediate 5.56 x 45 mm NATO caliber and the fourth type – chambering the 9 x 19 mm Parabellum pistol cartridge. The MP5 (short for Maschinenpistole 5) was created within the fourth group of firearms, initially known as the HK54.
GTA GamesThe MP5 is the most powerful sub-machine gun in the Grand Theft Auto series, doing some devastating damage to both the player and pedestrians alike. Since its inception in GTA Vice City, the weapon is mostly favored by the FBI (and GTA IV's FIB) and GTA IV's NOOSE tactical units as a weapon of choice. All renditions of the MP5 hold 30 rounds per magazine.
