Due to a mix-up with the orders, an error has been corrected.
Russian 3-2-3 is in hex O8, not M7.
The visual and Photoshop file have been updated above.

Game on!

MP 40 (Maschinenpistole 40)

Often erroneously called "Schmeisser" by the Allies, after Hugo Schmeisser who designed the MP 18.

Many of its parts were made using stamped rather than machined steel, which was more efficient and saved on costs.
An estimated 1.1 million were produced.

It had a 32 round magazine, and could only fire in full automatic, at 500 rpm.
They were designed with a resting bar under the barrel, which was used to steady the weapon when firing over the side of open-top half-tracks.



PPSh-41

The PPSh-41 (pistolet-pulemyot Shpagina "Shpagin machine pistol") was a cheap, reliable, and simplified SMG.
Common nickname is "papasha", meaning "daddy".

It was made using stamped steel, with a wooden stock. About 6 million were produced.

It could be loaded with a 35-round box magazine, or a 71-round drum magazine, and had a fire rate of 1000 rpm.

P.S. At 2.30 he sprays a creek bed...gives you an impression of what this could do in a trench or close quarters.

Dunno. No discussion (other than Panzerknacker and eniced73). Busy weekends? Lack of interest?
No skin off my nose, but just checking with my fellow wargamers what's up.

I think everybody is just sorta waiting for the action to start. Getting the early position/movement turns out of the way and all. Or perhaps the Germans are getting cold feet with the Soviet hordes forming on the horizon. :eek: :p

I may have missed something ... apologies if I have ... but I *thought* that we were awaiting the next Axis move orders ...??

Or is it the Soviet turn??

I just had a lot of stuff to do at the Weekend. Will complete the axis turn by tomorrow evening.

Gotta say i understand @Concord , would also wish there was more conversation at least for our side.

Having run several tournaments, this is not uncommon. Things will heat up when the action starts, and there are fewer obvious moves.
