MOSUL film trailer

I don’t think it is suppose to look like that.

Just saw this trailer a few minutes ago. When I saw this scope on the SAW I felt the need to share.

Mosul is a movie using footage from the liberation of Mosul from the Islamic State in 2016.

Let us take a quick look at a few of the other guns shown. We see some light and heavy machine guns.

I never thought that people made for good stable rests, but there is a good chance the guy in the picture had more kills than me, so he might know better.

I like this guy’s sling, simple and functional. Looks like a strap off any piece of luggage. When I was in I wasn’t cool enough to be able to get away with carrying a pair of brass knuckles.

This guy’s rifle reminds me of some of the Troy billet lowers. I don’t know if that one is Troy but it seems similar. Note the built in QD sockets in near the rear of the lower. Commercial stock, Eotech – probably a 512 model. AN/PEQ-2 IR laser and illuminator. A white light, possibly Surefire in what may be a FAB Defense light mount. Looks like a 11.5 inch government or heavy profile barrel.

Update – Matt points out that it is probably a SIG AR15 lower.

This rifle has a full power DBAL, maybe an A3 model. An Aimpoint Comp M4S and Matech rear sight. Looks like a KAC vertical forward grip. It is nice to see that the good guys over there have some good equipment.

I think I am going to have to pick up a copy of the movie. I didn’t intend to talk about these other rifles in the trailer, but I figured if I was going to post about the scope on the SAW, I might as well bring up the others.


  1. The level of destruction shown shown – is that a result of tube artillery, armor or… ?

    It appears as tho much of the city has been ground to dust.

    • Probably a combination of all of the above. I would expect much of that may still be from last time we were in the area.
