More Information
The Germans fielded thier first pistol-caliber fully automatic weapon, the MP18,I machine pistol, in the last months of World War I. The new German weapon, and the tactics developed for its use, were largely ignored by the victorious allied nations. The Germans however saw great potential in the concept and continued development in the post war era. In the first month of World War II the Germans fielded the revolutionary MP38 weapon. Just a little over a year later the Germans introduced the MP40 machine pistol. While the MP38 changed the way machine pistols looked, the stamped sheet-metal MP40 revolutionized the way they were made. Soon all of the allied nations scrambled to develop and field machine pistols (submachine guns) of their own.
