Firearms question about movie, The Package

No, this is not about a gay porno, this is about the 1989 Gene Hackman, Tommy Lee Jones movie. In the opening sequence Gene Hackman is a Green Beret Sargent leading his squad in a security detail in Cold War Germany. I'm no firearms expert, but it looked like a couple members of his squad are carrying either MAC-10 or MAC-11 machine pistols. Is this accurate armament for 1980s Cold War era US Army Special Forces troops? Or is this just typical 1980s Hollywood obsession with the cool guns of the day? Phone Post 3.0

They weren't MP5s?

Well, apparently they did have MAC10s in the movie. I do believe MAC10s were used by some US Military units.
