Sign In. Where is the P38??? And where is the MG34??? The P38 is a beast to be drawn, sooner or later I'll replace the Luger with it. Ok, no need to hurry. These 4 were all used by german troops. The MG34 was produced throughout the whole war although the MG42 went into production in It was meant as a simplyfied replacement for the MG34 though the 34 stayed in use So it would not be wrong to have them all in the picture.

The Bren was supported by a bipod and offered automatic and single-round shooting. The British Vickers rpm machine guns were, along with American Ms, the most reliable of the war across all environmental contexts. The Vickers range was a remnant of World War One and models were still being used by the Royal Marines during the s. Handheld sub-machine guns became integral to urban conflict conducted at close quarters in World War Two.
True sub-machine guns were brought to prominence by the Germans in with the MP18, which was later developed into the MP34 and the Americans introduced the Thompson soon after. Arriving after the end of World War One, Thompsons were used by the police from In the earlier part of the war the Thompson rpm was the only sub-machine gun available to British and American troops, with simplified design allowing mass production.
Thompsons also proved to be ideal weapons for the British commando units newly assembled in In the longer term the Thompson was too expensive to import in sufficient numbers for the British, who designed their own sub-machine gun. The Sten rpm was crude and susceptible to fracture if dropped, but cheap and efficient. Over 2,, were produced from and they also proved to be a key weapon for resistance fighters across Europe. The British produced their own arsenal of D-Day weapons. The Lee-Enfield series of. All SMLEs had a twenty-five-inch barrel and weighed about 8.
With its rear locking lugs, the smooth bolt action allowed the SMLE to be fired with unusual speed, and reloading was normally done with five-round stripper clips rather than replacing a full ten-round magazine. The Lee-Enfield series of military rifles was in continuous use with the British army from to Because it fired the same. It is doubtful whether any carbines were carried by British or Commonwealth troops in Normandy.

The Bren was one of the most successful light machine guns ever produced, and it largely replaced the World War I Lewis gun. Later the type was also made in Canada. The design featured a curved, thirty-round, top-feed magazine and an excellent quick-change barrel. Produced in four marks, the standard chambering was.
German Army's current infantry weapons.
Peak wartime production was a thousand per week. Usually fired off a bipod, the Bren could also be mounted on a tripod or an antiaircraft mount.

At a nominal twenty-two pounds it was light enough to be carried by the gunner, but to provide enough ammunition and spare barrels for continuous firing an assistant was necessary. Cyclic rate varied by models, between and rounds per minute. A small, tracked vehicle commonly called the Bren Gun Carrier often was armed with the gun for reconnaissance duty.
The Bren was so well designed that it remained a combat weapon for nearly half a century. An extremely long-lived weapon, the Vickers was essentially a slightly modified Maxim design that entered British service in Its portability improvement over the Maxim was accomplished by using lighter metals in the receiver and water jacket, but mechanically the two guns were very similar, both being recoil operated.

The belt-fed, water-cooled weapon was chambered in. The Vickers became known for astonishing ruggedness and reliability; it was capable of firing thousands of rounds without a malfunction. During World War I the Vickers was a standard British aircraft weapon, relying on air cooling rather than water. Weighing about forty pounds, the Vickers gun was tripod mounted and thereby qualified as a heavy machine gun.
Typical rate of fire was about rounds per minute. The Vickers remained in the British inventory until , a service career spanning fifty-six years. Entering production in and requiring a minimum amount of machining, the Sten was distinguished by a side-mounted thirty-two-round magazine.
With its tubular receiver and skeleton stock, it was cheap to manufacture and easy to use. Royal Ordnance, one of several manufacturers, was turning out twenty thousand a week at one point, contributing to an eventual total of some four million for all versions. A suppressed model, the Mark 2S, was produced with a Maxim designed silencer. With a typical loaded weight of 8. On full auto most Stens cycled at the rate of rounds per minute. Troops issued the weapon were ambivalent about it; the Sten was considered fragile and unreliable but reportedly could be dropped in crates from low-flying aircraft and still function.

King George VI was given a Sten gun in a presentation case, though reportedly the monarch yearned for a Thompson. Designed by the American genius John M. Browning, the P was so designated because it entered production in Half a pound lighter than the with twice the ammunition capacity, the Highpower was an immediate success. The main manufacturer was Fabrique Nationale in Belgium; when Germany conquered that country in the Browning remained in production and was carried by some German troops.
With the Herstal factory in German hands and Britain at risk of invasion, P production was taken up by Inglis of Canada. A top-break design that automatically ejected empty cartridges on opening and afforded easy reloading, the Webley was usually chambered in. The Mark VI was adopted in and was subsequently redesignated the No. It was produced as the Enfield No. The Enfield was extremely light—barely 1. A modification for the Royal Tank Corps removed the hammer spur to avoid catching on clothing within confined spaces; it could be fired only double action, with no means to thumb-cock the hammer.
Wartime production was at least ,, but the sturdy revolver also was manufactured thereafter. Germany was the by no means inferior to its Allied competitors in the production of D-Day weapons. The seminal bolt-action design by Peter Paul Mauser in his rifle became the global standard for decades; the Model was the major German infantry weapon of both world wars.
