Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

StG 44 or sturmgewehr 44.

Development started in 1943 with production soon to follow.
This weapon was a revolution small arms design, the fore runner for the modern assaultrifle.
It was well loved by the German infantry man and many allied soldiers would abandone their weapons for one of these rifles.
The Russian AK47 is a direct copy of it.

In 1944 the rifle was produced with a rate of 5000 pieces a month.

Rate of fire: 500 per minute
Calibre: 7,92 mm with a special shorter round weighing 2/3rd of the standard 7.92mm
Effective combatrange: 400 meters.
Velocity: 700 meters per second
Weight: 5,2 kg loaded with 30 round magazine.

My topics are about my personal opinion, my thoughts and what I think. They do not reflect the official opinion of the ministry of defense of the Netherlands.
