The USP, or P8 as it is called by the Bundeswehr, is a semi-automatic short-recoil handgun. It comes in three different calibers; the basic USP40 that uses an Osean made .40S&W cartridge, the Belkan preferred USP9 with a 9x19 parabellum round, and the USP45 of the Osean Green Berets that utilizes a .45 ACP cartridge. Many other models are available, all of them built around these three basic variations. These include the USP Compact, the USP Tactical and USPCT (Compact Tactical) favored by some sections of the ISAF military, the USP Custom Sport designed for target shooting, and the USP Elite, among others.
