Among Western security forces, the iconic Uzi submachine gun has become an uncommon sight. But this doesn’t mean that the gun has been forgotten. In fact, recent photos show that Belgian Federal Police, who are guarding NATO’s main operational headquarters in Brussels, still have access to these guns. The photos were taken at the Training Support Center at Chièvres Air Base, which is around 12 miles from NATO’s Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE). A standard Uzi has an overall length of just over 25-and-a-half inches and only weighs just under eight pounds.
