Hyena Road is a 2015 war drama written by, directed and starring Paul Gross (Passchendaele). Gross stars as Pete Mitchell, a Canadian military intelligence officer who recruits a team of snipers led by Ryan Sanders (Rossif Sutherland) in an effort to track down a mysterious Afghan fighter known as the Ghost. The film blends real footage shot by Gross in Afghanistan with action footage filmed in Canada and in Jordan.

The following weapons were used in the film Hyena Road:
