The 2012 Universal Pictures film "Battleship" isn't just an amped up version of the B4-miss, H9-hit board game. It's supercharged with the enemy ships being alien vessels that land in response to a NASA signal that was beamed toward their Earth-like planet.

Although the aliens and their vessels might be fictitious, some of the artillery used to battle them in the wargame-like flick are the real deal. Business Insider pulled together a list of the authentic weapons featured in the movie from the Internet Movie Firearms Database. Beyond just the usual pistols and assault rifles, below are just a few images of the more heavy duty gear they utilize:
