You *are* aware of his upbringing, aren't you Mim? The place he refused to call home. :^

Oh well, I'll see what I can do to persuade that poor man during the next day or two. I'll wait for Cipher to get a chance to reply before me though.

While StG-44s would be seen, MP-40 SMGs were far more common, as were Kar98k rifles.

Just throwing that out...

However, like Germans using PPSH's on the Eastern Front, Germans also made use of captured STEN Guns whenever they could, having the same ammunition as MP-40's German commanders didnt mind if their soldiers used the lighter weapons so long as the users sourced their own magazines. In some units especially around Normandy they were often used by German scouting party's because of their light weight.

Though yes MP-40s would be more accurate. its a bit like being picky over where an officer should have a Luger, Walther or Hi Power. Mostly because by 1944, people were using what they could, bearing in mind were only a few months away from the Germans going in to over drive on their last ditch weapons, you know like the single shot hunting rifles maid out of drain pipes and pallet would for the hitler youth and whatnot.

A little like nobody would likely bat an eye at a German with a Webley Mk VI from the first world war, or Fred with his Spanish Mauser.

Also though unlikely for any basic trooper to have one, Mauser did produce exact replicas of STEN Mk II's for operations of their forced behind enemy lines.

I'd like to weigh in on the weapons thing. From family knowledge I know my husband's great Uncle served in France around 1944 with a Panzer unit. There is a photo of him holding a US issued M1 Garand. So I think it may not have been unusual at this late stage of the war for German soldiers to use weapons they might have either found or taken from allied soldiers.

I can't believe Mike actually went through with it  :fp
Knowing Mike he might be having self doubts with that later on. He did his duty though which we could expect nothing less.

All right. I'll wait for the others to post before I do that. Posting twice in a row seems a little too extra, if you know what I mean. Or do you want me to modify my most recent post in the thread?
