Overview

A popular weapon dating back to the Winter War between the Soviets and the Finns, the M45's high damage, low bulk rating and large magazine make this a strong contender among the other available SMGs. Commanders must also take into account that the M-45 suffers from relatively high jam chance (0.1% less than the M1 Carbine for reference) and low rate of fire when assigning this weapon to less experienced Rangers.

Real Life

The Kulsprutepistol m/45 (Kpist m/45), also known as the Carl Gustav M/45 and the Swedish K SMG, is a Swedish 9x19mm sub machine gun adopted in 1945 and manufactured at the Carl Gustafs Stads Gevärsfaktori in Sweden. The m/45 was the standard sub machine gun of the Swedish Army from 1945 to 1965. It was then replaced by updated Ak 4 and Ak 5 assault rifles. The last official user of the m/45, the Swedish Home Guard (Hemvärnet), retired it from service in 2007.

During the Vietnam War, the M-45 found extensive use with the CIA, military advisers, and Navy SEALs. The US Navy found the M-45 useful for surface warfare given its ability to fire almost immediately after submersion. The units available to these groups were naturally devoid of any serial markings for clandestine use.
