What JAWBREAKER warriors carried into Afghanistan in the days after 9/11 | Military Times 

JAWBREAKER consisted of prior-service special ops warfighters, CIA officers, and intelligence experts who were sent to Afghanistan to lead the anti-terrorist missions. They were covertly transferred using a CIA-flown Mil Mi-17 Hip helicopter, each member equipped with their own weaponry including an M4 carbine and an M249 Squad Automatic Weapon. The helicopter carried a mounted M203 mm grenade launcher and a Surefire M500 weapon light. According to the CIA officer who led JAWBREAKER, each member of the unit was equipped with AK-style rifles and some with a Browning Hi-Power 9mm pistol.
