Trivia

The MP 43, MP 44, and StG 44 were different designations for what was essentially the same rifle, with minor updates in production. The variety in nomenclatures resulted from the complicated bureaucracy in Nazi Germany. Developed from the Mkb 42(H) "machine carbine", the StG44 combined the characteristics of a carbine, submachine gun and automatic rifle. StG is an abbreviation of Sturmgewehr. The name was chosen for propaganda reasons and literally means "storm rifle," as in "to storm an enemy position" (so to "assault" it, leading to the modern terminology "assault rifle"). After the adoption of the StG 44, the English translation "assault rifle" became the accepted designation for this type of infantry small arm.

This German initiative was what may have been called the first assault rifle as it was a completely new caliber and was halfway between pistol and rifle (or battle rifles such as the Springfield, M1 Carbine, M1 Garand and Kar98k). This change made it a middle range weapon that was not extremely bulky, but maintained high firepower.
