Description:
The equivalent to your Tommy Gun, but with less range malus.

The MP-40 is the German equivalent of your Thompson SMG. It has a high rate of fire, and has a clip with 32 rounds of ammo. Very deadly in the right hands, and will become even deadlier later in the game. Germans who use this weapon have lot higher chances of pinning your men inside bunkers, which makes this weapon even more dangerous. Waffen SS can prove themselves disastrous with this weapon.

Real Life

Waffen SS soldiers holding MP-40's.

The MP-40 was somewhat a machine-pistol. It was made of stamped metal and had a relatively low max fire rate, 400 rounds per minute (still enough to turn a person into hamburger). The MP-40 did not have a semi-automatic mode, because an experienced soldier was expected to be able to shoot 1 bullet at a time. Compared to its rival the Tommy Gun, the MP-40 was more accurate, had a longer range, was lighter, and was cheaper, all at the cost of stopping power and fire rate.
