    The Walther MPL images date the GSG9 images to just after Munich, ca mid to late 1970's ..

    The original 3 platoons of Delta Force carried MPL and grease guns as main sug guns. Pictured are GSG-9.

    well then, since we're posting petrified images:



    Members of Delta Force, part of US Special Operations, preparing to conduct HALO (HIgh Altitude Low Opening) training which involves parachuting at an altitude which requires oxygen and later opening up the chute at a very low altitude to avoid observation

    I strongly doubt that those are GSG-9. I think those guys are regular police during the 1972 Munich Olympic Games hostage-crisis.

    Those were just MPL images dated to 1972.
    GSG-9 was founded because of the Munich Olympics debacle.

    Read my quote again; keyword - after Munich.
