English translation:spare and backup parts
Explanation:
I thought it was probably the company too, but now I'm not so sure. I found some pictures (see ref.). SZNSP = souprava zaloznich soucastek nahradnich ...?...
Also, translate it as an assault rifle, not a machine gun (see Google and other references)

that should read SZSNP = souprava zaloznich soucastek a nahradnich ?

Notes to answerer
Asker: I have certainly found that link to the Czech Government gift to Iraq. In the same sentence of my translation, there was another accronym ND, which means spare parts. I would like to know the wording of the Czech accronym as well.

agree  Pavel Prudký: to P bude asi příslušenství (souprava záložních součástek a náhradního příslušenství), tedy spare and backup parts and accessories

Reference: přesný význam zkratky

Reference information:
Až teď mi poslali z ministerstva obrany přesný význam zkratky:
"Souprava záložních součástek nářadí a příslušenství" (včetně tedy prvního slova) Takže překlad by asi byl "Tools and Accessories Spare Parts Kit", když tedy přiberu tu soupravu. Stuart to však vcelku odhadl... Vojenské zkratky jsou někdy notoricky známé, jindy utajené :-))
