    I am sorry to say, I have seen this during 80s in some U.K. news. It was even in few 90s action movies. Cannot place it.

    Truth to be told, I am yet to see or hear novel Indian tactics.

    No, Mp-5 is still the standard weapon of NSG but SIG-553s are more common in assualt teams (normally 1-2 operators per team) now.

    Ok probably out of topic. Recently i have used a FN P90, the similar one used by SPG. The build quality is really bad and the its time consuming to replace the cartridge. The owner also complained about the cracks in the cartridge after extensive use. Only advantage I observed is its got less recoil than MP5s ( prefer MP over it any day) . Is their any specific reason SPG chose this smg?

    Did you use a civilian model PS90 with the long barrel? Or normal P90?

    The FNH guns are of top standards but that doesn't mean there won't be a few examples with bad quality - neither does it mean all guns of that type are like that. It really depends on how much use (or abuse) that particular model was subjected to, was it properly maintained or not?

    Reloading is a matter of practice really. There are some people who take time to even properly seat an AK mag, because they don't have practice.

    As of why SPG may have chosen it - first of all the 5.7x28mm cartridge. Much better stopping power & penetration than the 9x19mm MP-5. Also the P90 has a huge magazine capacity of 50 rounds compared to the MP-5's 30. The weight-balance & ergonomics are nicely designed. Also, due to the bullpup design of the P90, the barrel length is longer than MP5 even though length of the gun itself is shorter/more compact.
