The USP was adopted in Germany by the Bundeswehr (German armed forces) as the P8 in 1994. The P8 has only minor differences from the standard USP model, these being translucent magazines, a reversed safety/decocker lever (on the P8, down indicates 'safe', and up indicates 'fire' — this is the opposite of the standard USP), and the 'S' and 'F' letters being printed onto the frame instead of onto the lever itself. The P8 has a traditional lands-and-grooves barrel instead of a polygonal barrel.
In Project Reality, the P8 is the main sidearm of the German Armed Forces. It fires a 9x19mm round.
