Italian to English translations [PRO] Military / Defense
Italian term or phrase:armi lunghe e corte
Salve.. si parla di misure di sicurezza in previsione di una visita di un illustre personaggio.
"Le forze di polizia sono inoltre integrate a terra con armi lunghe e corte per garantire la sicurezza".
cosa significa "armi lunghe e corte"? Solo "short and long range"? o e' un altra cosa? grazie
Explanation: These are the professional names. An alternative to sidearms is handguns.
Small arms include all the infantry weapons that one infantryman can carry, up to and including squad automatic weapons (i.e. light machineguns)
