Press Release: U.S. Airforce chooses the APC9K Pro by B&T

The United States Air Force has chosen to field the Brügger and Thomet APC9k Pro as their next submachine gun. While the shock of their skyrocket into the headlines has begun to wear off, this move by the Air Force effectively marks the transition of B&T from surprising and sudden arrival, to widely fielded manufacturer. As the APC9 continues to take over for the long-in-the-tooth legends like the MP5k, one can only hope that the platform will receive the love of more than just government entities.
